YUMMY...We have re-kindled our love affair with Cabernet Franc and have begun to consistently craft this grape into delicious refreshing and reflective red wines. To arrive here has been a long time coming and we are quite excited. Cabernet Franc is a red grape very well suited to our Long Island terroir. We have made delicious, gulp-able Rosati out of it for years and are jazzed about occasionally offering this grape as a red wine with all the wonders that brings to the table, our glasses and our souls. Our 2019 Cabernet Franc is a treble clef, alive, high-toned, bell-ringing and happy wine! Beautiful, melodic aromas and flavors of bright red fruit, raspberries, strawberries, cherries, currants and purple flowers coupled with a very faint sprinkle of herbs, silky textures and a wonderful lightness of being make this wine irresistible. Comprised of 100% Cabernet Franc from the North Fork this wine was hand-harvested, de-stemmed, crushed by foot and punched down by hand. The wine was fermented wild/ambiently and spent 8 months primarily in stainless steel tanks along with some older oak barrels. Our 2019 Cabernet Franc was handled minimally and bottled on June 26th, 2020. This wine will pair fabulously with charcuterie, light meat dishes, grilled fish and vegetables, pastas, wood-fired pizzas and most anything coming from a pig! This wine is very easy to drink immediately...however it will continue to evolve in the bottle for the next five years at least, so grab some extra, taste the evolution and be a part of the Cab Franc revolution! 588 cases produced.
