Cabernet Franc
Cabernet Franc is the genetic parent of the more famous Cabernet Sauvignon grape variety, and is often used in much smaller percentages in Bordeaux blends.

Cabernet Franc is not as tannic as Cabernet Sauvignon, and has lower acidity levels. It is therefore more suitable to cooler climates (such as the Loire where it makes single varietal reds). Cabernet Franc can also play a more dominant role in Bordeaux blends in cold years when Cabernet Sauvignon fails to ripen fully.

Cabernet Franc tends to produce fruitier, more aromatic and vegetative flavours than Cabernet Sauvignon, typically displaying redcurrant, cherry and plum fruits.
