Cabernet Franc, traditionally known for blending in world-class Bordeaux wines, has been in demand as a single varietal in recent years. It is a parent grape to other Bordeaux varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and also Carménère. This grape variety naturally has a higher acidity, and the grape and wood tannins that are extracted during winemaking and barrel maturation give this wine longevity. 

This library wine pack showcases a selection of beautifully cellar-aged Cabernet Franc vintages to enjoy. The soft and smooth tannins in this varietal make it a great choice to enjoy on its own, or it pairs perfectly with a meat and charcuterie board.
