TASTING NOTE: The incredible 2019 Appellation San Carlos Cabernet Franc is super elegant, fresh, varietal, nuanced and complex. A wine like this often costs more money than the price point of the appellation range, but it feels like a bargain anyway. This is an updated version of the 2018, with precision and symmetry. It's vibrant and lively, velvety and focused. Drink date: 2021-2026. Score - 93 (Luis Gutiérrez, robertparker.com, March 31, 2021) Price $ 22.95
