Jeff Tanner and Rob DaFoe, among others, are making impressive gains with Cabernet Sauvignon grown in the eastern reaches of Santa Barbara County. It's a new twist on an old story. In the 1970s, Cabernet was foremost on the minds of Santa Barbara vintners, but for a long time the wines offered more promise than results, and failed to inspire. Now a few from the eastern end of Santa Ynez Valley are making a modest revival.
