Billsboro, Cabernet Franc 2013, Sawmill Creek Vineyards, Finger Lakes, New York
Tasting Note: A straightforward cab franc with medium complexity beginning mid-palate.
This ruby-to-purple colored cabernet franc has a nose of red cherry, red currant and peach stone fruit with a touch of clove baking spice.
The wine is medium in acidity and body, and has a smooth, tart, chalky finish.
The red and black fruit flavors stand out on the palate with peach flavor making up about 5% of the flavor profile.
Bottle Note: Smell, taste, pair, repeat . . . Billsboro: iconic wines from the Finger Lakes.
