Cabernet Franc

Home Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc is one of the major black grape varieties around the world. It’s typically grown for blending with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in the Bordeaux style, but don’t underestimate this wine and think of it only as a supporting wine. It is also outstanding on its own, or as the dominant player in a blend. It’s a subtler and more delicate of the Cabernet wines, and it produces perhaps its most alluring wine in France’s Loire Valley.
