Cab Franc is a Noble Grape

We love making wine with the Cabernet Franc grape. Inevitably, we're often asked, what's Cab Franc?  Here's your primer.

Cab Franc grape is one of the parents of Cabernet Sauvignon, along with Sauvignon Blanc. It's also one of the five Noble Grapes of Bordeaux.

It's often used to blend with other varietals in Bordeaux-style red wines, but it makes a stunning single vineyard red wine or a very memorable rosé. We make both styles at Majuscule.

As a red wine, Cab Franc is medium-bodied with moderate tannins. The flavors are defined by a balance of red fruits, herbs and peppery earthiness. It has a medium acidity that makes it refreshingly easy-to-drink and incredibly versatile for pairing with a variety of foods.
