FAQs about Cabernet Franc
Cabernet Franc has a lighter color, but richer flavor than Cabernet Sauvignon. DNA evidence has shown that Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc vines, so while they share many of the same properties, they are completely different wines. Cabernet Franc is a drier wine with a spicy taste and intense aroma. Cabernet Sauvignon is dry and heavy but has a stronger hint of fruity flavors blended into its core.
A single variety Cabernet Franc pairs well with rich herbs like rosemary and mint. It also works well with succulent steaks and grilled meats or fish. It can highlight rich flavors but isn't meant to mix with very intense flavors, which can take away from the decadent taste of the wine itself. Cabernet Franc is paired with flavors that do not compete for attention on the palate.
There are several wines that hail from various parts of Europe that share some common properties with Cabernet Franc. In Italy, you'll find Aglianico from the Campania region has a similar taste to the Cabernet Franc. Lagrein, from Northern Italy, also shares the same peppery notes as Cabernet Franc. Monastrell from Spain and Carmenere from Chile also have similar properties. However, all of these variations have a slightly sweeter taste due to the warmer and more humid climates they thrive in.
