Cabernet Franc Glacier Ridge (2013)


Finger Lakes


Cabernet Franc

tasting notes

The reds from Glacier Ridge Vineyard have a power and structure that is unique to the Finger Lakes; a credit to the spectacular vineyard they hail from and management by Tony Damiani. Put simply, our Single Vineyard bottlings from Glacier Ridge try and stay out of the way of the vineyard and let the fruit and vintage speak for themselves. The result is a ripe and rich wine with the characteristic raspberry and violet notes of Cabernet Franc married to the smokiness typical of Glacier Ridge grapes. Still a very young wine, long experience has shown that these tend to be undrinkable the first two years in bottle and truly hit their stride 8+ years out.
