Tasting Notes & Food Pairing

Beautiful rustic aromatics of stewed berries and wood spice combine with concentrated notes of cocoa and cigar box on the nose.  The dark fruit on the palate is savory and meaty with layers of bramble, sweet spice, and clove.  This medium bodied Cabernet has bright acidity and generous tannins, which makes it a perfect pairing with grilled red onions, saddle of rabbit, wild game or roast chicken with chanterelle mushrooms.

Vintage Notes

Ever so gently, the spring of 2014 tip-toed in with a very enthusiastic welcome from both grape growers and the vines themselves.  The long and harsh winter – both in terms of temperatures and snowfall – reduced the potential crop yields early in the season.  With fewer initial clusters, vines were able to deliver a more focused flow of energy and nutrients to the remaining ripening fruit.  The Finger Lakes saw spring and summer days with temperatures regularly vacillating from cool to hot with intermittent showers, creating constant shifts and activity in the vineyards as our grapes inched towards maturity.  Each hand-harvested vineyard brought fruit to our winemakers that demonstrated playful acidity, promising flavors, and tremendous quality.
