2018 Wandering Star
Also impressive, the 2018 Cabernet Franc Wandering Star comes from the Mill Race Vineyard in Yountville and was brought up in 80% new French oak. Exotic spices, leather, green herbs, and sappy flower notes all define the bouquet, and it’s medium to full-bodied, ripe, and textured, with ripe tannins. It shows some greener, more herbal aromatics but does the style well.— Jeb Dunnuck 92pts
