Tasting Notes

This Cabernet Franc is a stand-out: mossy yet floral with red-fruited aromas. More delicate and appropriate to the cooler climate of upstate New York, this wine is ideal for sliced meats, stinky cheeses, and poultry. It is recommended to decant. Elizabeth's vineyard is located on the east side of Seneca Lake, a warmer slope for the Finger Lakes. Decant this wine to enjoy its best.
