Cabernet Franc is a lighter and more food-friendly relative of Cabernet Sauvignon; it thrives in California’s Sierra Foothills.
What You Need To Know
The Gold Rush towns of California’s Sierra Foothills have become some of the state’s most exciting emerging wine regions. While they have long produced mostly rustic reds destined for local consumption, they’ve also become home to a groundswell of boutique vintners—such as Madroña Vineyards—focused on ambitious wines. Owners Paul and Maggie Bush have planted 27 different grape varieties on their small estate, which lies at an elevation of about 3,000 feet. The warm days and chilly nights are perfect for Cabernet Franc, one of their star varieties. Paul made just 12 barrels of this wine in 2010.
