Mendoza Province is Argentina’s most important winemaking region with approximately 167,704 hectares (414,405 acres) of vineyards, accounting for 70% of the country’s Wine production. Within the Mendoza appellation there are distinct sub-appellations, legally recognized as “Indicaciones Geográficas” (IGs). Although Cabernet Franc’s original home is in the cool climate of the Loire Valley France (and some in Bordeaux), it is also grown in Napa California. It is not so typical to see it from Argentina. The mouthfeel is full and rich with cassis, raspberries flavors and notes of black pepper and oregano. This versatile wine is fantastic paired with rich meat dishes such as stews and braises, Latin dishes with heat and a little kick such as enchiladas or moles and lamb dishes and tomato based pasta and sauces. Additionally this wine is delicious paired with dark chocolate and berries and also served alongside a cheese plate.
