Cabernet Franc

I have a huge soft spot for Cabernet Franc.

Cabernet Franc is the parent of Cabernet Sauvignon (with Sauvignon Blanc) and also a parent of Merlot. Cabernet Franc is often looked down on in favour of Cabernet Sauvignon, but this is an unfair asessment, based purely on commercial ease and habit. Cabernet Franc can be less generous than "CabSav" and so is less planted, and people rarely get to taste it solo.

It has many facets but is best known for pepper and tobacco characteristics. Smoky rich wine.

The Cabernet Franc we offer come from Switzerland, Italy and Israel and show the amazing qualities, and diversity, of the variety. Enjoy!
