This product is currently sold out.
Have you met Cabaret Frank? His No.2 'The Aviary', Old Vine Cabernet Franc is a marvellous, lean, mustachioed celebration of the mighty Cab Franc brought to you from California. Easily one of our most requested wines in the shop, the Cabaret Frank Old Vine Cabernet Franc is a smooth, medium bodied and easy drinking wine that strikes a lovely balance with its blackberry, plum and dark cherry fruit characters coupled with classic varietal leafy tones. Made predominately from Old Vine Cabernet Franc (85%), the balance being a harmonious blob of sibling Cabernet Sauvignon. The story and overall package may be light-hearted, but the wine inside is as ever, seriously good with oodles of drinkability!
This is is a food wine that really lends itself to vegetarian dishes. Try it with grilled aubergine or courgette, or with meals containing green peppers, cabbage, or herbs (particularly sage, thyme, rosemary or saffron). A versatile wine that is also fantastic with tomato based dishes; lighter meats such as turkey or chicken, along with game meats like duck; and richer beef based dishes like steak or veal.
