Cabernet Franc is a Vina Loca favourite. It's not widely known by most people, but it features in many exceptional blended wines around the world and you can also find great single variety versions. It's iconic home is the Loire valley in France - particularly the area of Chinon, which is the Cabernet Franc epicentre.
Cabernet Franc is an aromatic red. It often makes medium bodied reds which have a light leafy, earthy, wild herb character to them and it is very versatile. It might not have the longevity or complexity of Cabernet Sauvignon, but it is a lot lighter, approachable, and easier to match to foods. It's basically the perfect lunch red in our opinion!
