Cabernet Franc is a black-skinned French wine grape variety grown in most wine producing nations. The variety is most famously known as the third grape of Bordeaux and can be found in many of the world's top Bordeaux Blend wines. It most commonly appears in blended red wines, where it adds herbaceous accents of tobacco and dark spice

Rock Hollow brings the tannic structure to the wine, a violet floral component, and darker fruit flavors like black currants and black cherries. Star Lane adds a Smokey component with rich baking spice.
