This 2012 Cabernet Franc is a part of the winery’s “M by Martellotto” series of wines that focuses on crafting refined, old world styled wines with a respect for quality, sustainable farming, and terrior. Greg Martellotto’s intention is to make wines of consequence, value, and varietal expression, and he has certainly achieved that with his “M by Martellotto” 2012 Cabernet Franc. This wine comes from the Santa Ynez Valley, a region of Santa Barbara County that’s perfectly tucked between the San Rafael and Santa Ynez Mountains. Its enticing nose of berry fruits and hints of herbs gives way to a vibrant, lush palate of blueberry, oak, vanilla, black cherry, herbs, and umami. This wine is intricately layered and nicely balanced, and a very versatile wine for food pairing.
