2016 Cabernet Franc - Glacier Ridge

Available:  In Stock $30.00
Size: 750 ml
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 goal with the Single Vineyard bottlings from Glacier Ridge is to 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.

2016 will be remembered as the drought year in the Finger Lakes, as it marked the first time ever that the region entered the “extreme drought” category according to the US Drought Monitor. With almost no rainfall whatsoever from late May until late August, there were justifiable concerns about vine health and fruit dehydration. Much to our surprise and relief, the vines handled the weather without any issue, almost no drought stress signs were ever seen in the vineyard.
