Wine maker notes
Cabernet Franc is quickly becoming a signature red wine variety for the Finger Lakes. Delicate cedar, red raspberry, and hints of violet show elegantly in a nose that is complex and ethereal. Cranberry and red cassis flavors on the palate combine with overtones of smoke, producing a wine that is structured by grippy yet incorporated tannins. This fruit forward wine is showing well young and will age beautifully with increasing depth and complexity. Enjoy with lamb doublets and cassis black pepper demi-glace. Vinification of this Cabernet Franc is straightforward and traditional using ripe, gently crushed fruit, 10% whole cluster inclusion, warm fermentations punched down frequently by hand, aging in a mix of new and older American oak (Canton Cooperage) barrels, and minimal racking and blending. The goal is to let the fruit express the structure, fruit and tannins that come from the vineyard.
