Tasting Notes:

This parent grape to Cabernet Sauvignon is the estate's oldest and hardiest varietal. This is a great example of a true Finger Lakes Cabernet Franc, with nutty and violet characteristics and a cleaner, lighter feel on the finish.

Winemaker Notes:

Picked later in the harvest for a higher brix count at 23.8.  Aged in French oak for three years to soften the tannins.

Food Pairing:

Veal, Sausage, Soft Cheeses, Grilled Beef
