Ironstone Cabernet Franc 2018

Cabernet Franc is matchless for its unique fragrance and alluring charms and yet it's a sleeper among the noble varieties (the great vitis vinifera); perhaps for its crucial but minority role in Bordeaux Blends. Cabernet Franc is in many ways an Olivier to Cabernet Sauvignon as Roland. Wise and loyal, Franc checks some of the exuberant, cavalier but daresay pompous, primary qualities Sauvignon would carelessly express without the fragrant reminders of Franc to temper and lend reflection. The two are dear friends and in many ways belong together. Many adherents in the new world are crafting Cabernet Franc that make the heart sing. None other carries you along like Cabernet Franc and few capture and keep your attention.

Food Pairings

The better cuts of lamb or beef. Grilled tuna or salmon. Ham and hamburgers. Pasta and pizza. Oh yeah, eggplant dishes.
