Cabernet Franc 


The parent of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc is notoriously the most temperamental of the Bordeaux varietals. With too much heat, the grape sacrifices its acidity yet without enough warmth and sunlight, it fails to ripen. Moon Mountain Vineyard’s location is perfectly suited for this balancing act with ample daytime heat and exposure tempered by cool evening breezes blowing in from the Pacific Ocean.
