Primarily grown for blending with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon to create Bordeaux-style wines, Cabernet Franc can also be vinified unaccompanied to make a pale red wine.

Cabernet Franc's herbaceous, fruit-forward and adaptable body make it an easy blend with Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot.

Try Cabernet Franc with a classic beef stew, aged Gouda and rosemary-rubbed pork tenderloin.
