Cabernet Franc is used in most of our blends, including Red Rex and our flagship DRX. Cabernet Franc adds lift and a chocolate note in the upper palate. Steve Morse, one of our partners, has been after me years to bottle Cabernet Franc as a varietal. So, here it is in all its glory, one of the truly great Bordeaux varietals.

We added Cabernet Sauvignon by taste to enhance the finish, and aged it for 46 months in our favorite French oak barrels.

Deerfield’s Cabernet Franc is a full-bodied wine with silky tannins, dark spicy aromas, peppery accents, and rich red and blackberry flavor focused at the top of your palate where you taste dark chocolate. If you’re a Cabernet Sauvignon fan our Cabernet Franc will be a treat, with a whole new set of nuances.

Deerfield Cabernet Franc, like all Deerfield wine, is cleanly made (clean wine: clear head) and pairs best with meats and grilled entrees’ and, of course, Robert’s chocolate truffles.
