Cabernet Franc Reserve 2013
Traditionally used as a blending grape in the revered Bordeaux blends, Cabernet Franc shines as a single varietal on the North Fork. Planted by Dr. Gristina in 1982, our North Ridge Vineyard vines are some of the oldest in the region. After more than three decades these vines have taken root deep in the soil allowing their exceptional fruit to show the full expression of our Bordeaux-like terroir. Our Cabernet Franc is sustainably grown, harvested by hand, and aged in the finest French oak to enhance but never over-power the lush flavors of this varietal. This Reserve Cabernet Franc is deep and concentrated with flavors of dark fruits and spice.
