Knapp Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Cayuga Lake Estate 2008

External Review by We Speak Wine:

This wine has tasty plum fruit and black pepper spice. Just a touch of licorice is complemented by toasty oak. Ideal with ribs, steaks or pasta with a marinara sauce. - Winery

During the next five years, 1978-1982, new vineyards of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling, and Pinot Noir were planted, some of the first vinifera grapes along the shores of Cayuga Lake.

In 1977, Doug and Suzie Knapp purchased the property where Knapp Vineyards Winery and Restaurant is now located. During the next five years, 1978-1982, new vineyards of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling, and Pinot Noir were planted, some of the first vinifera grapes along the shores of Cayuga Lake. Concurrently, they began their study of wine making culminating in the establishment of Knapp Winery in 1982 selling their first estate grown wines in the spring of 1984. Knapp was the first winery in the Finger Lakes Appellation to plant and vinify the grape variety Cabernet Franc. In 1992 the Knapps opened a restaurant in conjunction with their winery retail shop—the first winery restaurant on Cayuga Lake. Always the pioneers, in 1995, Knapp became the first winery on the East coast to operate an Alembic Pot Still for the production of Brandy. Knapp Vineyards Winery and Restaurant was purchased by Gene Pierce and Scott Welliver in 2000. In 2007 Knapp produced 13,000 cases, consisting of 30 wine products and six distillate products. From 500 gallons in 1982 to 36,000 gallons in 2008, Knapp’s growth has been steady. Our wines are distributed throughout upstate New York as well as being available at the winery retail shop year round. The addition of Grappa and other grape distillates to the traditional mix of wines has created a more diverse and interesting product line. Growth continues at Knapp: new vineyards, new product lines, new gardens, and much optimism for many more new ventures in the twenty first century! Read less
