For the second straight vintage, Coyote Canyon Winery’s Artist Series showcases the Andrews family’s reserve work with Cabernet Franc and artwork by Martha Nelson Andrews. (The 2014 and 2015 vintages spotlighted Petit Verdot.) These two barrels of 100% Franc lead to aromas of ground clove, raspberry, malted milk ball and cola. The drink is driven by bright red fruitiness akin to Montmorency cherry, cassis and more raspberry, making for a juicy, food-friendly finish that includes a slice of red bell pepper and a dash of white pepper.
