As a varietal wine, it usually benefits from small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and can be as intense and full-bodied as either of these wines. It is rare to find a wine that is significantly Cabernet Franc, but they can be very good! At its worst, it strays away from currant and berry notes into stalky green flavors that become more pronounced with age. On a brighter note, the most successful Cabernet Franc wines exhibit chocolate and roasted coffee tones as well as rich uplifting fruit.
