Wine Club Exclusive through January
We have re-kindled our love affair with Cabernet Franc and have begun to consistently craft this grape into delicious refreshing red wines. . Cabernet Franc is a red grape very well suited to our Long Island terroir. We have made delicious, gulpable rosati out of it for years and are jazzed about regularly offering this grape as a red wine with all the wonders it brings to the table and our glasses. Our 2017 Cabernet Franc is a treble clef, alive, high-toned and happy wine! Beautiful, melodic aromas and flavors of bright red fruit, raspberries, strawberries, cherries, currants and purple flowers coupled with a very faint herbaceousness. The silky texture 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 6 months in older oak. Our 2017 Cabernet Franc was handled minimally and bottled by gravity on March 20th 2018. 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 easy to drink immediately...however it will continue to evolve in the bottle for the next five years or so. Nota Bene: this wine along with several others were recently written about and delightfully received by James Suckling and his crew at jamessuckling.com. About the 2017 Cabernet Franc they penned "Super fragrant and perfumed nose with red currants, strawberries and wild raspberries. The palate has impeccably fresh and vibrant strawberries with fine tannins and energetic appeal. A light, modern and delicious red" We just say Yummy! 8 bottle max per customer.
