Closely related to the Cabernet Sauvignon grape, Cabernet Franc is an early maturing grape lighter in color and considerable lower in tannins. It produces a wine which is light to medium bodied with woody or herbaceous aromas that are distinct while the wine is young, unlike it's relative, Cabernet Sauvignon. Though it was once most widely used for blending with Cabernet Sauvignon because of it's ability to strengthen without compromising character of flavor, Cabernet Franc is experiencing a recent surge in popularity as a varietal table wine. Less complex than Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc pairs well with most any meat or pasta dish.
