In select years, the exceptional flavors and characteristics of a wine give the potential for a Reserve selection that stands above the rest. In 2008, the Finger Lakes experienced an ideal warm vintage for this classic red variety. Fermented in small lots and aged in a mix of new and old French oak barrels, this wine exhibits phenomenal color and structure. Robust plum and red berry scents open up beautifully in the glass while firm, round tannins sumptuously coat the mouth. Look for this Cabernet to age gracefully.
