Wine Wednesday ~ Cabernet Franc

October 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


by Marty Cook

The enigmatic Cabernet Franc. Parent grape of both Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, which are two of the six Noble Grapes. Parent grape to three of the six allowable red grapes permitted in a red Bordeaux blend, and itself one of those six allowable red grapes. A grape that yields complex red wines, with aromas of raspberry, bramble, and bell pepper, Cabernet Franc is principally grown for blending with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in the Bordeaux style; but, it can also be vinified alone, as in the Loire’s Chinon or throughout the wine regions of North America’s East Coast. And, yet, it is a grape that evokes strong emotional responses in favor of or against it.

Join us for this week’s installment of Wine Wednesday on October 6th at 7:00 PM Eastern Time when we explore the many portrayals of Cabernet Franc wines. There is more to this wine than Chinon. And, as a reminder, shoot some photos of the front and back labels of your bottle of choice and send them to WineCat@pa.net by 11 PM Tuesday evening, for inclusion in our weekly PowerPoint slide show.

We look forward to seeing you and learning about your Cabernet Franc during Wine Wednesday on October 6th at 7:00 PM Eastern Time!  Zoom link below.

NO reservations necessary.  Just send label photos to WineCat as noted above and click the zoom link Wednesday evening at 7 PM to join.
