Cabernet Franc is quickly gaining a reputation as a star in the Finger Lakes. This grape is ideally suited for cool climate growing and produces a consistently ripe crop each vintage. Although it is often used as a base for a blend, this grape stands beautifully on its own as a full bodied wine. Grown in the warm confines of our Magdalena Vineyard site, a lengthy growing season produces exceptional depth of character. The deep color matches ripe fruit and earthy tones as a prelude to velvety firm tannins and rich black cherry flavor.
