Cabernet Franc is an old grape, having been documented at least as far back as the 16th century. It has also been widely planted throughout Europe and the world. But with a few noticeable exceptions, Cab Franc has tended to be relegated to the status of supporting player, usually to its more glamorous offspring, Cabernet Sauvignon.
Although it has a similar flavor profile to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc is less forgiving of bad vintages or bad winemaking, which may account for its mixed popularity. On the other hand, it is beautifully responsive to terroir and careful viticulture, and can be exquisite when well made, having a wide variety of potential expressions.
