This medium bodied, dry rosé wine offers aromas of blooming cherry blossom followed by distinct wild strawberry tones and a touch of green bell pepper, following through with a refreshingly tart, lingering finish.

The grapes for this Cabernet Franc Rose vintage were harvested in the Finger Lakes of New York.
Limited Production - Only 75 Cases Produced!
The Cabernet Franc grapes are pressed immediately, whereas our red wines we let ferment in bins with skins on for 2 weeks. This is what gives the wine the light color of pink and a lower level of tannins than traditional Cabernet Franc dry red wine.
Food Pairing Notes
Our Cabernet Franc Rosé pairs well with a multitude of dishes, ranging from shellfish and seafood, light salads, tapas and charcuterie, to rich dishes prepared with the strong flavors of cheese, garlic, basil, rosemary and olives.
