    Opolo Vineyards
    2005 Cabernet Franc/Merlot View Label
  • Appellation: Paso Robles
  • Blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Opolo Vineyards (Paso Robles, CA) -- (Winery Info & All Wines)
  • Winemaker: Rick Quinn and Dave Nichols
  • Another first for Opolo Vineyards, this small production of wine was a blend that we just couldn't pass up. A lovely fruit-driven "Meritage" blend, the Cabernet Franc spice marries perfectly with the soft Merlot cherry like fruit. Perceptable, through unobtrusive, French oak aging has lent this wine a complementary layer of vanilla

    Cornerstone Cellars
    2008 Stepping Stone Cabernet Franc View Label
  • Appellation: Napa Valley
  • Blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cornerstone Cellars (Yountville, CA) -- (Winery Info & All Wines)
  • Winemaker: Jeff Keene
  • Cabernet Franc is a cantankerous variety. It’s a late ripener like Cabernet Sauvignon, but prefers a cooler climate than its cousin, which makes ripening this variety to perfection a challenge. As that risk is what it takes to make outstanding Cabernet Franc, we’re up to the challenge. To our sprightly Carneros 2008 Cabernet Franc we’ve added a dash of Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon to add a little punch to it’s brilliant freshness.
