The Cabernet Franc Grape

October 18, 2014

Cabernet Franc grapes are blue-black skinned and used to make red wine. They are very cold hardy grapes with fruit that ripens early. Cabernet Franc is a more hearty and full-bodied wine compared to Pinot Noir. However, it is not as intense as Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet Franc pairs well with red meats, red pasta dishes, and chocolate.
