5 CABERNET FRANC gourmet pairings This wine goes well with buttery, white fish, such as baked filet of seabass drizzled with sweet and spicy Peking sauce. tasting notes Cuda Ridge Wines' Cabernet Franc is soft and elegant, reminiscent of a Loire Valley Cabernet Franc. This blend, typically with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, is enticingly fragrant, and has evolving flavors of raspberry, ripe cherries, white pepper, and sandlewood, with a hint of olives and vanilla. The tannins are soft which makes this a great wine to pair with food or enjoy by itself with family and friends. winemaker's insight This wine is sourced from the White Cat Vineyard located in the eastern side of Livermore. It is located in the rolling foothills that are sunny from morning until dusk and has moderate winds in the afternoon. The long sunny days bring the fruit to ripeness and the cooling effect of the afternoon winds maintains the acidity. It produces a lighter-style Cabernet Franc, which Larry prefers. The grapes are harvested early in the morning and immediately processed. awarDs & DistinCtions 90 points – Wine Enthusiast Gold and Silver Medal winner at San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and Orange County Fair APPELLATION: Livermore Valley COMPOSITION: More than 90 percent Cabernet Franc and blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
