13 Napa Cabernet Francs That Might Convert You From That Other Cab

January 31, 2022

“I’m talking about Cabernet Franc. The grape—a major player on Bordeaux’s Right Bank…It has been established by DNA analysis that Cabernet Franc is actually one of the parents of Cabernet Sauvignon, along with Sauvignon Blanc (yes, a white variety).

Mira Cabernet Franc Hyde Vineyard 2015

“Floral perfume floats opposite a vein of minerality and earth, with layers of cassis, cedar, flint, mocha and crushed herb notes in between. Sweet plum and red berry fruit pops on the palate, carried with a vibrancy reflecting cool-climate Hyde Vineyard in Carneros. Fine tannins combine with plush textures, creating an elegant structure.”
