"Unlike other Steele and Shooting Star red wine bottlings, our Blue Franc receives little, or no, oak aging. Some liken our Blue Franc, depending on vintage, to Pinot Noir in lighter years and Zinfandel in the riper vintages. Sometimes it is totally akin to a top-flight Gamay from Beaujolais. The wine is clean, crisp, and unpretentious with tons of fruit, including warm berry pie, complementing the traces of pepper, almond, cherry and cinnamon. Our Shooting Star Blue Franc has soft tannins, medium body, great color and is the perfect red wine to enjoy over the summer with any festive occasion." —winemaker
"This offers appealing notes of cranberry, cherry and orange peel along with a kiss of vanilla. It’s tart and fresh in style with puckering fruit flavors—perfect for the dinner table." —Sean Sullivan, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
