Grape: 80% Cabernet Franc, 20% Malbec. Region: USA> New York> Long Island> North Folk. Notes: Cot-fermented, 9 months in French oak.
Description: The North Fork's temperate climate offer superb conditions for viticulture. The surrounding waters of Peconic Bay, Richmond Creek, and Long Island Sound create a long and warm growing season-- sunny and warm in the summer, cooling gradually in the fall. Winter frost typically come deep into November, giving wine grapes ample time to fully ripen. The soils combine sand and loam, clay and gravel, and have over the centuries nurtured crops such as rhubarb, potatoes, spinach and Brussels sprouts. This generation prefers the challenges and rewards of growing wine grapes.
Cot-Fermented bursts with fresh raspberry and blackberry aromas. On the palate there is a bright mouthful of vibrant ripe fruit that finishes with delicate savor.
Food Pairing: Enjoy this juicy wine with everything from grilled fish to roast chicken to BBQ.
