“ CABERNET FRANC VS CABERNET VS MERLOT”
June 2nd, 2018
Los Angeles, Ca. (February 28, 2018)-
Did you know that the grapes Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc are actually the “parents” of Cabernet Sauvignon?
Cabernet Franc seems to be breaking out! Travelling from Santa Barbara to Napa Valley, we’re finding top producers making an isolation or blend of Cabernet Franc. Even Merlot seems to be making a comeback, Duckhorn Merlot was the #1 wine in the world in 2017 via the Wine Spectator and the value proposition is very strong! As for Cabernet, well it still holds the hearts, minds, and the pocket books.
Come and blind taste up to 21 wines, from a very compelling list of top producers, a list valued well over $1600. This class comes with a petite cheese plate and is hosted by Ian Blackburn, winemaker, wine host, wine instructor.
