Giving the Cabernet Franc a second chance

...after tonight the Cabernet Franc has become one of my new favourite varietals....

I don’t know about you but I have never been much of a Cabernet Franc Lover – I don’t know why I just never warmed up to it. But recently we had friends over for dinner, we each decided to bring a Cabernet Franc; we brought the Cabernet Franc 2008 from Popular Grove and they brought a Cabernet Franc, 2008 from Tin Horn Creek.

 

Both were really delightful – the one from Tin Horn was really approachable, a warm and wonderful glass of wine that we enjoyed immensely – then we open the Popular Grove Cabernet Franc, it also was rich and full of delicious flavours but low tannin so absolutely amazing and easy to enjoy – personally I preferred the Popular Grove but my husband like the Tin Horn Creek as it did have a little more bite to it.

 

No wonder they use this gracious wine so often in blending some of our wonderful Bordeaux blends!  After tonight it has became one of my new favourite varietals.
