Cabernet Franc doesn't usually get as much love as its globe-trotting cousin Cabernet Sauvignon, but did you know that it came first? Cab Sauv is actually a cross between Cab Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, a combination that was first attempted by grapegrowers in the 17th century. This version from Chile demonstrates why the varietal has remained popular for so long, with vibrant, juicy red and black currant, red plum and dried herb flavors practically jumping off the palate. Elevated acidity and firm, yet pliable tannins provide support for the ripe fruit, keeping the wine fresh and lively. Enjoy this with roast leg of lamb for a sublime pairing.
