Crushed with 25% stem inclusion
French oak barrels (8-10 years old) for 11 months

TASTING NOTE: Weedy red and blue fruit, bright, chalky acid, light and fresh in the mouth, dry with fine tannin.

ELEVAGE:Grapes were crushed into a one ton bins with twenty-five percent stem inclusion and let to ferment with once daily punchdowns. After nineteen days the grapes were pressed and settled juice was moved to old French oak barrels to complete fermentation, including full malolactic, which finished in July of 2022. In late September the wine was racked out of barrel and bottled by hand without fining or filtration.

MISCELLANEOUS: A blend of roughly equal parts cab franc, cab sauvignon and merlot sourced from three vineyards on the east side of Seneca Lake. Who knew these grapes went together so well? 2021 was a tough harvest for the cabernets (and everything else, honestly) with a big crop and lots of rain, somehow this wine is making it work. Drinks well over several days.
