Bright red and cheery hued this Cabernet Franc has aromas reminiscent of coffee and sweet almond oil. Flavors of coffee continue to the palate then drift away to reveal flavors of red currents and lingonberry.
100% Cabernet Franc from Burning Daylight Vineyard Rendon, TX
Cabernet Franc (kab-er-nay frah~n) originates in the Loire region of France but is best known as a blending grape for Bordeaux style reds. It tends to have similar flavors to Cabernet Sauvignon but is lighter in intensity and color. DNA testing has proven Cabernet Franc to be a parent grape of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Carménère.
Food Pairing Notes
This red would be at home paired with a rich blue cheese and pine nut wedge salad or stake fajitas with grilled bell peppers and onions. For a sweeter snack try chocolate covered espresso beans.
