Food Pairing Notes
Cab Franc's higher acidity makes it a delight to pair with tomato-based dishes such as Spaghetti Bolognese. Lamb is always a great pairing. Gamey meats and earthy wines complement each other well. Herbs and spices can make the pairing even better. Smoky BBQ burgers or mushroom quiche are also great pairings.
