Cabernet Franc is Princely in its demeanor. Consistent in the vineyard from year to year, always trying to please with fast growth and heavy clusters. The Finger Lakes climate produces an especially blessed grape of aristocratic proportions. This wine has a silkiness, an elegance of breeding found only in the finest Courtiers of Royalty. As if in an arranged marriage that results in harmony and respect, Cabernet Franc pairs well with all foods except oily fish and proletariat meals that are overly spiced.
