Cabernet Sauvignon vs. Cabernet Franc


On this night we will compare and discover the uniqueness of these two special grapes. We will taste four wines in this comparison, looking not only at differences coming from the grape itself, but also differences in style expressed in the Old World and the New World.

We will start out with a Rosé of Cabernet Franc from France, and then explore wines from NYS, California and France.


You will all be surprised by the depth and beautiful features of each of these examples.

We will discuss the original premises under which the grapes were used, along with how they have now been integrated into today’s wine world.

A little bit about our speaker:

Lynn George has been in the wine business for 33 years and has had the pleasure of working for a number of distributors along with suppliers.


She has traveled the world through her career to countries that include France, Italy, Australia, Chile and Spain, along with California, Oregon and Washington in our own beautiful country.


Her wine education has been basically hands-on, taught by wine makers and other professionals, and perfected through tasting and reading.


Lynn is a founding member of the Rochester chapter of Women For WineSense.
