Cabernet Franc Blind Tasting Event
Thursday March 15, 2018
630pm-800pm Swirl Wine Store - Yaletown
Cabernet Franc shares DNA with Cabernet Sauvignon. But there are numerous differences between the grapes. Cabernet Franc ripens earlier than Cabernet Sauvignon. This makes the grape better suited to slightly cooler climates and cooler vintage.
Not as fleshy as Merlot and with less tannic structure than Cabernet Sauvignon,
this deeply coloured, thin-skinned berry offers floral, plum, blackberry,
cassis, spice and fresh herb or leafy aromas and flavours.
Cabernet Franc is a food friendly wine. Try it with roast chicken, pork, roasted or grilled, beef, duck, sausage, lamb, veal, hearty fish dishes and even hard as well as soft cheese.
Here is what is happening:
We will have ‘8 ‘ Cabernet Franc wines of different styles for you to taste. The wines will be local BC wines in a blind tasting format. Come judge these wines with us!
