Description 

Northstar Cab Franc
Northstars focus on creating world-class Bordeaux-style Merlot-based wines begins in the vineyards where the best classic blending varietals are selected to create Northstars Merlots. We are pleased to showcase the unique characteristics of these varietals in extremely limited bottlings each vintage

Cabernet Franc - While Cabernet Franc, a parent with Sauvignon Blanc to the ubiquitous Cabernet Sauvignon, frequently plays second fiddle in Bordeaux blends (though it does get more props on the Right Bank, where it dominates Cheval Blanc), this lighter, higher acid/lower tannin, early-maturing, perfumed red varietal is far from a wallflower. It is the headliner in the Loire Valley appellations of Saumur-Champigny, Bourgueil, St-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil, Chinon and Anjou-Villages, where it makes exceptional, food-friendly wines. Outside of France, Cabernet Franc can be found in northern Italy, particularly in Friuli and in California where it is frequently used as a blending grape in Bordeaux-style wines.
