First up is Cabernet Franc, an oft-forgotten or ignored red wine that typically ranges from light to medium in body and offers perhaps more earth-to-fruit than you might be used to in red wine. Often made in the Old-World style, this wine is a standout with chicken and herbs, roased sqaush, braised root vegetables and roasted duck. One other plus of Cab Franc is that you seldom find it for over $20 per bottle and frequently find it in the $8-$16 range. Try some this fall!
