Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard, Cabernet Franc 2013, Seneca Lake, Finger Lakes, New York,
Tasting Note: Hermann Wiemer’s cab franc is the paragon of what cab franc can achieve.
This deep ruby-colored wine is concentrated in appearance with black cherry fruit, plum and a faint hint of green pepper on the nose.
This dry red is medium-plus in color, acidity, and flavor intensity and presents as an elegant European-styled red.
Bottle Note: Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard combines Old World tradition with New World innovation, hand-crafting elegant, well-balanced wines. Our ecologically conscious viticulture highlights the distinct qualities of premier vineyard sites. Cool Finger Lakes autumns allow Cabernet Franc to ripen slowly, yielding a seductive, harmonious varietal expression of ripe plum and berry flavors. The palate is full and round with firm tannins and a soft, elegant finish.
