Majuscule 2018 Cabernet Franc, Mount Veeder ($80) — Forget whatever you know about cabernet franc before you take your first sip of Majuscule. Light? No. Green? No. Boring? Hell no. This beauty from the Napa Valley's Mount Veeder sub-appellation is richly layered with impressive depth and remarkable complexity. The 2018 shows notes of blueberry and blackberry, supple tannins and a generous hit of wood spice. Hefty price tag, hefty wine.
