    I know that Cab Franc can be paired with all sorts of roast meats, but I'd like to make something a little more "interesting."  We have a monthly wine tasting/food pairing group, and this month it's Cab Franc at our house, so we also provide the main dish.  Any suggestions?

    I think it might depend on the appellation where it's coming from. A French cab franc is going to be a little more peppery and leafy green, while New
    World cab franc will be more fruit forward. I have more experience with the latter. I really like to pair it with lamb or venison. Duck is also nice, but better with old world cab franc, in my opinion.

    For me, the best is roast duck to pair with. /img/vbsmilies/smilies//smile.gif
