Cabernet Franc

Red Wine Grape

Less popular than the Cabernet Sauvignon and less tannic as well, this red wine grape provides a softer and fruitier alternative to its sister. Popular in Northeast France and the Eastern U.S., the wine comes in grape-named varieties as well as French place-named varieties such as Chinon and Bourgeuil.

   I had bought this to try with salade niçoise, but it didn't make it--we drank it by itself. Very pleasant and interesting, even to me who still hasn't fully regained my sense of taste.

   Pretty soft. Short finish. I liked it but I wish there were more too it. I haven't had a lot of great VA red wine in a while and while this didn't quite get to "great," it was quite solid.
