Above all other grapes,
Cabernet Franc is nearest and dearest to my heart. I learned how to grow and make it into one of the world's most thrilling, yet underrated, red wines while working at Domaine Charles Joguet in Chinon, France.
Perhaps this is why I'm most discerning when it comes to California Cabernet Franc, because I know just how good it can be. It took a year of searching to find this wine; a clear translation of French Cabernet Franc, with a California polish.
