Lamoreaux Landing, Cabernet Franc, New York 2005

Red with some evolution.

Vinturi - Fragrant tar, red cherry, earth and wood spice nose. Has me thinking RFG Nebbiolo. But some creamy, sexy, vanilla notes creep in.

Lean, with red fruit and spice flavors. Nice follow through into the finish. Best on the nose. I love better Cabernet Francs from the Finger Lakes (like this one) - lean, crisp and completely different from almost everything produced on the West Coast.
