The Cabernet Franc grape is a widely considered to be the best growing red grape in the Fingerlakes. Having an earlier ripening compared to its relative -Cabernet Sauvingon- theCab Franc does well in a cooler climate with a shorter growing season because it is ready to be picked earlier in the harvest season before the frost comes. Always Consitant and reliable, the Cab Franc is a popular red wine at Treleaven, containing notes of pepper, spice and smokiness and aging in oak for 18 months.
