Personally, I hope LI continues to focus a bit on Cab Franc. It's one of those grapes that, handled well, is deliciously drinkable, pretty flexible, and a wonderful medium for blending in some of the better traits of cab sauv & merlot.

100% cab franc, or blended? I am having a hard time imagining it straight up.

I don't really like Merlot much by itself either. As a blend it can be great.

Fatemah...you're absolutely right. I really love some of the better CFs out here...whether alone or blended (Bedell makes a terrific blend that is 40% Cab Franc and 40% Cab Sauv with bits of Petit Verdot and Malbec added).

Maybe I'll have to send you a CF...who knows ;)

100% or blended...I think CF is a very under-regarded grape...if grown in the right place. Some are bland or boring...some can be sharp...but I've had some great ones.
