Shooting Star Syrah Lake County Ca 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Shooting Star's Blue Franc receives little, or no, oak aging. Depending on vintage, some liken this wine 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. Blue Franc has soft tannins, medium body, great color and is quintessentially quaffable!

Light, crisp and dry chardonnay with little oak. Not bad but has somewhat of a metallic mid-palate
