Rockway Vineyards' 2015 Small Lot Cabernet Franc has proudly won the following awards:
Silver Medal, 2017 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition
This wine represents classic cool-climate Cabernet Franc. Red berry fruit, balanced structure and focused varietal character. Well suited to our site and the region as it is an ideal food pairing wine.
Colour is ruby to garnet. Bright aromas of red berry fruit, cigar box and savoury spice with an herbaceous undertone. On the palate the wine is soft and supple with a juicy core feel. Flavours of strawberry, savoury pepper and baking spice are backed with nicely structured acidity. Polished tannins lead to a medium+ finish.
