Cabernet Franc 2016 - Limited Edition Library Wine
This wine is sold at our Queensbury Production Facility, and online, as well as for pickups at our Lake George & Bolton Landing Tasting Rooms.
What is a Library Wine?
In 2014, we began setting aside four cases of our best dry varietal wines, each of that particular vintage year. Stored in the proper conditions (in a cool, dark place, arranged on their side), just for you, we have been saving four cases of each ever since!
How did we decide which wines to put in the Library?
There's a different and special reason for choosing a library wine – whether we had only created a limited supply or the wine sold out too quickly, it was immensely popular or it won a particularly notable award in its vintage year. Each wine is chosen for a unique reason.

VERY limited release. Only 4 cases available!
Our Cabernet Franc is a medium bodied, dry wine offering earthy, peppery tones that are nicely balanced with oak, pleasant acidity and a smooth finish.
GOLD: 2018 Critics Challenge Int'l (2016 vintage);
“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.
