Every Thursday night, Back Room Winesâ tasting event focuses on one grape.
We call it âThe Great Grape Study.â
Tasting a grape from different places, and made in different styles, is really the best way to understand the grape.
The Great Grape Study on Thursday, June 1st is CABERNET FRANC.
From cool-climate, Pinot Noir-like to dark, rich, Cabernet Sauvignon-like (Napa and Bordeaux versions), this grape runs the gamut of styles. Come check them all out.
