Habit, Red Blend, Santa Ynez Valley 2015
Very pretty with nice depth, soft tannins and well integrated oak. Drinking fantastic out of the gate, but will age beautifully.
Half of this wine is cabernet franc, with the balance cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and petit verdot. There’s an intensity of fruit and a warmth of flavor here that recalls figs and blackberries in the afternoon sun. Its black pepper savor and suave, fruit-skin textures should grow fine with a little cellar time. Well-priced and well made, for brisket.
