The Best Cabernet Franc
It's time to give Cabernet Franc some love!
That's a shame because there are some wonderful examples of this variety being grown all over the world. Originally from France, and still used prominently there, we've also found excellent examples as of late from Argentina, California and many other states in the U.S.
And while prices of Cabernet Franc based wines can be crazy in Bordeaux, in many other areas this variety doesn't demand the premium you may find with Cabernet Sauvignon, thus proving to be a reliable variety for Reverse Wine Snobs to seek out.
Lastly, the variety is often known for what is best described as green or bell pepper notes from the naturally occurring pyrazine compounds within the grape. While they are not always prominent, this can be a bit polarizing so we encourage you to do some exploration within this variety to find out what you like.
