The Loire Valley-inspired Lieu Dit label is a collaboration between Tyler Winery’s Justin Willett and sommelier Eric Railsback. Their 2018 Santa Ynez Valley Cabernet Franc is lifted, high-toned and earthy. Aromas of sous-bois, green pepper and wet flowers. Crunchy and bright red fruit notes refresh the palate, where dried tobacco, tomato leaf and citrus peel notes hang on the finish. A tasteful, accurate homage to old-world Cabernet Franc.
