Five Fun Facts About… Cabernet Franc

Friday, March 15th, 2013

Born in the Loire region of France in the mid-12th century, Cabernet Franc is an essential blending grape, found primarily in Bordeaux-style blends. Often referred to as “Cab Franc,” this herbaceous red grape also helps create Meritage magic together – along with its constant companions, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Cabernet Franc Grapes

Five Fun Facts About Cabernet Franc

Facts courtesy of Snooth, Wikipedia, and Huffington Post
  1. Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc are actually the “parents” of Cabernet Sauvignon – not vice-versa, as previously believed.
  2. Across the world, Cabernet Franc is one of the twenty most widely planted grape varieties. Important wine regions include California, Bordeaux and Southwest France, Washington, Oregon, New York, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Canada, Chile, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Brazil, Italy, Hungary, Croatia and Romania.
  3. Even though Cabernet Franc usually joins Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon in Meritage blends, it can also be bottled as a single varietal. 100% Cabernet Franc wine is most often found in France, but New World regions like California have recently started to make it too.
  4. Wherever Cabernet Franc makes a solo appearance, the grape makes leaner, fresher styles of Cabernet, designed for earlier consumption.
  5. Flavor characteristics of the Cab Franc grape range from sweeter notes like plum, blackberry, violets, raspberry and blueberry to the more savory: sage, bay leaf, rosemary, tobacco, bell pepper and eucalyptus.
  6. Bonus! Alternate names of Cabernet Franc are many! Aceria, Acheria, Arrouya, Bordo, Bouchet, Bouchy (Gascony), Breton, Burdeas Tinto, Cabernet, Cabernet Aunis, Cabernet Franco, Capbreton Rouge, Carmenet (Médoc), Fer Servandou, Gamput, Grosse Vidure, Hartling, Kaberne Fran, Messanges Rouge, Morenoa, Noir Dur, Petit Fer, Petit Viodure, Petite Vidure, Petite Vignedure, Plant Breton, Plant Des Sables, Trouchet Noir, Véron, Véron Bouchy, Véronais,and Cabernet Gris.

Winery Spotlight: Get to Know… Lorimar Vineyard & Winery!

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

 

The Story

Lorimar Vineyard & Winery is a dream come true for brothers-in-law Lawrie Lipton and Mark Manfield.  Their collective experiences in hospitality and music inspired a unique winery concept.  “We showcase our wines with a supporting cast of musical, culinary and visual arts, accompanied by a passionate staff for the complete winery experience that engages all of the senses!”  Well, that says it all.

Lorimar is proud to announce the newly-opened Tuscan-style winery in the middle of Temecula Valley wine country on north Anza Road.  Featuring live music and a revolving art gallery, the new tasting room expands upon the arts-related features of the Old Town tasting room.

From the adjoining orange groves and 22 acre estate vineyard to a spectacular view of the Santa Rosa and Palomar Mountains, the setting is perfect for creating inspiring wine country memories with wine tastings, tours, private events and weddings.

Both Lorimar tasting rooms provide a friendly and uniqu­­e environment to enjoy their premium wines. “There’s always something exciting going on…wine tasting events, music, wine specials and wine classes,” says Mark Manfield.  “We’ve created a warm and inspiring place for people to stop in, relax and enjoy great wines.” The knowledgeable and friendly staff is always willing to answer questions about wine, lead guests through a structured tasting or just pour guests a great glass of wine of their choice…they’ll even offer you a recommendation or two regarding some great places to eat, stay, or taste in Temecula Valley.

­­
