Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines4% Cabernet Franc; 3% Merlot. Given the comfortable stance of the Steltzner Claret, it is a bit of a surprise to find this bottling offering somewhat less to like. To be sure, it is noticeably fitted with potent ripeness and tannin, but it is less complete in fruit, less accessible and requires a fair bit of faith in the future before it shows up on our radar screens.
