Cost: 50 cents per taste, 50 cents per taste for the Wow Wine of the Week

Cabernet Franc, the quiet parent grape of flashy Cabernet Sauvignon, plummy Merlot, and tannic Carménère, deserves far more attention than it gets. Cab Franc is the people’s grape. While it’s most famous as part of the iconic Bordeaux and Meritage blends, where it brings peppery, earthy aromas and complexity, Cabernet Franc excels when bottled on its own.

Saturday’s tasting includes five Cab Francs that are sure to please. Please join us and taste for yourself!
