Well structured and food-friendly Cabernet Franc
Juicy and plump, spiced black cherry aromas are lifted with earthy gravel and cedar. Powerful and elegant simultaneously, blackcurrant and plum flavours with polished tannins and vibrant acidity. Black olive and herb notes on a firm finish. A great food wine.

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Dr Konstantin Frank, scientist, pioneer, visionary. A man who single-handedly put the Finger Lakes district of upstate New York on the wine map. He was the first to plant and test European vines in the Finger Lakes region back in '57.With a portfolio of grapes that are the envy of most wineries, Cabernet Franc remains one of the standard bearers.
