“A favorite on our crush pad, Cab Franc gets high honors year in and year out as the gold standard for New York red wines and this vintage is no different. With 2018 being a tough year for grape harvest, Cab Franc persevered and was able to hang on the vine through the middle of October and finish off our 2018 harvest season. Typical strong notes of black pepper were noticed in barrel, but bottle aging has shown off really nice notes of green pepper.”
Food Pairing Notes
A versatile food pairing wine, try our Cabernet Franc with tomato-based dishes, barbecue, rich veggies with herbs, and soft cheeses like goat, fontina, & more.
