2019 Stainless Steel Cabernet Franc
Treleaven's first stainless-steel fermented and aged Cabernet Franc is meant to be light, fruity, and day-to-day enjoyable. An extremely cool fermentation lent extra aromatics and fruit to this wine while extraction was achieved by twice daily pump-overs in the tank.
Winemakes Notes : An enviable blend of elegance and power have driven Cabernet Franc to the pinnacle of Finger Lakes reds. For this particular expression of the grape we looked to strip away all the ornamentation of barrels to produce a very pure, clean articulation of Cabernet Franc in the Finger Lakes.
Tasting Notes : A crimson hue in the glass with a nose filled with dark wild fruits, blackberries, black cherries and black currant. The palate is bright and fresh with light delicate tannins making this wine easy to drink. In the summer put a chill on it or on cooler nights serve as your normally would.
