Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good (89)

Review date: September 3, 2015

Wine Review: This ruby colored Cabernet Franc from the Finger Lakes is very good and friendly. It opens with a fragrant and attractive blueberry and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and very smooth. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused plum with hints of blueberry and oak in the background. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are quite sticky. I would pair this good value Cab Franc with beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2012 Cabernet Franc presents a nose of roasted red pepper and prune that lengthens with oaky and spicy tones. On the palate, this wine displays great elegance with soft tannins and a smooth long finish. Coming from an exceptionally hot summer this wine will benefit from decantering to reveal the depth of its character - serve with brisket and red sauce pasta dishes. Drink now or cellar until 2017.
