2020 Stainless Steel Cabernet Franc
This Cabernet Franc is meant to be lighter, fruitier, and day-to-day enjoyable than the serious barrel-aged styles. A cool fermentation lent extra aromatics and fruit to this wine while delicacy was ensured with a minimalist cap management approach.
Winemaker 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 quiet, cool wine that whispers more than shouts; it’s like lying beneath a tree in an orchard, eating dark red cherries and plums, splattering yourself with the juices from one bite to the next as the sun shines all around.
