Product Details

A varietal gaining new popularity, this wine is a close relative to the Cabernet Sauvignon, standing tall with complex notes of blackberry, blackcurrant, herbs, and pepper. Cabernet Franc (“Cab-err-nay fronk”) is a red wine whose origins lie in the Basque country of France. Decanting Cabernet Franc will help simmer down Cabernet Franc’s natural spiciness. The wine will taste softer and richer with 30 minutes of decanting (or pouring through an aerator). If you're a fan of Carménère give Cabernet Franc's savory herbaceous characters a try today!

Food Pairings:
Roasted vegetables, mushroom ravioli, and cheese

Yield: 6 Gallons | Body: Full | Oak: Dark | ABV: 12.9%

Great service

This wine is fermenting now.
I’m sure it will be just as good as the others we’ve made from Midwest Supplies!

Different process, good potential

Unlike all other kits I've used, this one has the oaking occur after primary fermentation, which makes the kit closer to the experience of making wine from fresh juice. The taste and smell so far are good, but I was unable to degas enough, so the wine was still effervescent after the dining time had elapsed.

I've put the carboy aside to degas naturally over the next month or two. Really looking forward to a good result as it's hard to find moderately priced cab franc out in the world.
