Mission Codename We All Shine On
We absolutely adore wines from Starry Night Winery and when we learned that they made a stunning, single varietal Cabernet Franc, we dispatched Agent Red to sample the wine, immediately. After his careful yet quick assessment, Agent Red managed to get his hands on every last available case. This limited production 2010 Starry Night winery Cabernet Franc was deemed by Agent Red to be a superior example of the varietal and it earned his highest recommendation. This is high praise from Agent Red, as Cabernet Franc is his favorite red varietal.
This magnificent wine is drinking beautifully now and it will only continue to improve over the next few years so we encourage you to lay a few bottles down. Cabernet Franc is among the most food friendly wines available, and this wine is exceptionally so. With lush, dark fruit and a balanced acidity this wine possesses all of the best characteristics of the varietal, without any of the “green” notes that can sometimes appear. Pair this food-friendly wine with nearly anything, but we would recommend something rich, robust and complex, like a juicy Prime Rib with plenty of horseradish. Will be keeping plenty on hand for our holiday entertaining.
Please do not miss out on this truly extraordinary wine.
