Tasting Notes

The 2020 vintage allowed us to create some superb reds and the Cabernet Sauvignon is no exception! This wine has buckets of gumption. A profound, rich nose of black currants, tobacco, leather, and oak promises a palate that will ravish your tongue; it does not disappoint. Fierce, deep black fruit suffuses your senses and works together with a meaty umami presence, strains of cedar, autumn leaves, cigar-box and again leather. The finish is long, showing robust, muscular tannins that promise a long a delightful life for this bold and alluring wine.

Vintage Notes

2020 was a winemaker's dream, a vintage of idyllic growing conditions in the Finger Lakes. Expect to see extremely high-quality wines that show concentration, complexity, silky tannins, and the varietal specificity for which we are known. During the growing season we experienced gorgeous warm days and heat in timely doses. The heat produced the right amount of moisture stress (read lack of rain) to keep the fruit slightly dehydrated and the consequent flavor development of the skins and pulp lent a complexity to the juices that are playing out in the wines. Our winemakers, Phil and Lauren, crafted truly remarkable wines that will show well early, but will have the depth of character to age gracefully.
