Wine Review: This cranberry colored Cabernet Franc from the Finger Lakes opens with an attractive black raspberry bouquet which includes hints of clove, herbs and oak. The light body is smooth, earthy and juicy. The flavor profile is a mild black raspberry and lightly tart cranberry. I also noted herbs and light plum. The light tannins and acidity were finely balanced. The juicy and slightly dry profile follows through to the finish with hints of cherry that fades away nicely. I would pair this attractively priced Cabernet Franc with a turkey dinner and all the fixings! - Joe

Winemaker Notes: Lighter in color and style compared to the 2015 vintage. Medium intensity with cranberry, raspberry, cracked pepper, dark cherry, and slight toastiness from oak. Soft earthy tannins are balanced perfectly with vibrant acidity. The combination of European and American oak adds layers of spicy flavors. Pairs well with stuffed bell peppers, pork tenderloin, or chocolate fondue.
