Tasting Notes
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.

Vineyard Notes
The grapes for this Cabernet Franc Rose vintage were harvested in the Finger Lakes of New York.
Production Notes
Limited Production - Only 75 Cases Produced!
Winemaker Notes
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.
Other Notes
Label Image: A dramatic sunset over an island on Lake George. Adirondack enthusiasts treasure summers spent camping on the islands.
