The 2018 Cabernet Franc aims for a pure expression of Cabernet Franc in the Finger Lakes by using only stainless steel rather than oak. Bright cherry and violet fruit on the nose underlaid by mineral tension in the midpalate, in many ways this wine uses Cru Beaujolais as a touchstone. Refreshing to drink, it stands as a joyous counterpoint to the influence of oak that our single vineyard Cabernet Franc requires.

This red shows a pleasing mix of fruit and earth on the nose, displaying raspberry alongside tilled soil, red flowers and black pepper. There's solid intensity to the red fruit on the palate, with a floral note lingering throughout. A gentle cherry-pit astringency marks the close. Enjoy with a slight chill.
