Hermann J. Wiemer Cabernet Franc Finger Lakes 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Cabernet Franc is quickly gaining a reputation as a star in the Finger Lakes. This grape is ideally suited for cool climate growing and produces a consistently ripe crop each vintage. Although it is often used as a base for a blend, this grape stands beautifully on its own as a full bodied wine. Grown in the warm confines of our Magdalena Vineyard site, a lengthy growing season produces exceptional depth of character. The deep color matches ripe fruit and earthy tones as a prelude to velvety firm tannins and rich black cherry flavor." Winemaker's notes

Riesling-obsessed connoisseurs know how important Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard's pioneering work is to wine. Hermann, born in Germany with an extensive wine family background, discovered the Finger Lakes in the 1960's, and its cool climate and gravelly soil reminded him of the Mosel Valley. Realizing the untapped potential of the Finger Lakes region, he started to grow classic European vines along selected sites on one of the most prominent properties in the Finger Lakes. Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard estate grown wines are established from traditions of excellence and have a reputation for being exceptionally lush, crisp and well balanced. Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard is founded on the philosophy of quality and hand crafted wines. Located on the shores of Seneca Lake, the well drained sloping shalestone bedrock and Honeoye silt loam soil lend itself to the production of what critics consider to be some of the best grown Rieslings in America.
