Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc is generally used in Bordeaux blends and is sometimes used for ice wine, although we do have varietal wines in stock as well. Wines produced by this grape tend to be higher in acidity, which means that food pairings with acidic or vinegar-based flavours are recommended. Cabernet Franc is perhaps most similar to Cabernet Sauvignon, except Cab Franc tends to have a slight green pepper aroma. This can be good or bad, depending on taste, and is actually caused by methoxypyrazines or “pyrazines!"
