Cabernet Consideration



Cabernet Franc, the “lesser”, underappreciated grape overshadowed by its progeny Cabernet Sauvignon, is actually a source of great value. Michelin-starred sommelier Nicolas Capron-Manieux curates a tasting of Cabernet Franc, and maybe a Merlot, that will make you think carefully next time you are craving a Cabernet.
