Further Details

You may know Cabernet Franc as a blending grape in Bordeaux, or as a more significant component of the reds you're likely to find in French supermarkets further north. It is of course one of the stars of the Loire Valley, but in a modest vintage its vegetal character can limit its appeal.

The ideal wine-growing conditions of Mendoza's Maipú region allow the grapes to ripen fully and emphasize a richer, darker side in the resulting wine. There's a Cabernet-family blackcurrant depth to the flavours, but at the same time a herby, spicy edge, that make this a great choice with lamb and pork—try the Inicio Malbec with your steak!

If you'd like to read more about how the newcomer fits in with Malbec, here's a recent article by Amanda Barnes for the South American Wine Guide.
