Description of Cabernet Franc Wine

Philippines Wine Shop Clark Wine Center is pleased to share with you articles, news and information about wine, wine events, wine tasting and other topics related to wine and the appreciation of wine.

On the vine, the cabernet franc grape looks very similar to a cabernet sauvignon grape, with large clusters of grapes in bold blue and black hues. During the growing process, foliage management of the vine is an important aspect of growing this particular grape. If the climate is exceptionally cool, the vines will produce more foliage and perform less grape ripening. The grape is thinner-skinned than cabernet sauvignon and does well in cool regions.

The specific aromas present in cabernet franc are influenced both by the exact region and production style. Aromas identified in cabernet franc often include:

  • bell pepper
  • raspberry
  • tobacco
  • violet.

Flavors in cabernet franc are similar to the wine’s aromas, and are both fruity (raspberry, cherry, plum and strawberry) and flora (violet).
