A wine with a long history and an even longer list of fans. "Cab" is the world's most popular red wine, the lifeblood of a thousand dinner parties and family gatherings. With its versatile nature and full-bodied, intense flavor, it's a go-to for entertaining visitors and getting together with friends and family.
It comes from a hybrid grape variety called Cabernet Franc, which produces wines that are full-bodied and intensely flavored with firm tannins and notes of blackcurrant, woodsy flavors (like cedar), and herbs.
With a robust taste and acidity, this wine is best served with foods high in fat and umami flavors such as lamb, venison, blue cheeses, mushrooms, and cured meats.
