Lamoreaux Landing Cabernet Franc Finger Lakes Estate 2009

Member Review by Philip James:

A thick and rich fruity nose. Cloves and chocolate as well as black cherries and licorice. Smooth tannins creep up slowly. Rather age-worthy. Tart finish but still young. Tasted at the winery

Mark Wagner founded Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars and has consistently produced award-winnning wines with his own grapes since the 1990 vintage. Mark's family has been in the Seneca Lake grape business since the time of his great grandfather, and since the 1940s has produced vitis labrusca and French-American hybrid grapes for sale to big wine producers like Taylor and Widmer. As the giants began to stumble and estate wineries emerged in the wake of the Farm Winery Act of 1976, Mark took over the family business in 1978 and shifted the emphasis of the family farm to cultivating premium vitis vinifera grapes to supply the budding new wineries. Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars was the logical culmination of generations of grape-growing knowledge and decades of Mark's viticultural experience. The soaring Greek Revival building, which was designed by Ithacan native Bruce Corson, opened on August 30, 1992, and offers visitors unparalleled views of more than 25 miles of water on Seneca Lake. Lamoreaux Landing is aptly named after a 19th century steamboat landing on Seneca Lake, and the pilings from this dock can still be seen below the vineyards down on the lake. However, this connection to the deep waters of Seneca Lake extends way beyond a geographical namesake or signature view. In the winter months, radiant heat from the lake insulates nearby vineyards, protecting the vines even on the coldest days when the air temperature in the region drops below zero degrees Farenheit, which is cold enough to kill delicate European vines like Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Merlot. The original vineyards are planted on lands recognized as far back as the 1800s as ideal for grape cultivation. Superior soil content, gently sloping hills, unusual prevailing wind patterns, ample sunlight, and proximity to the deep waters of Seneca Lake are all important ingredients that contribute to the production of Lamoreaux Landing's premium estate-bottled wines.

This barrel aged Cabernet Franc has a big, rich nose with aromas of black cherry, chocolate, licorice, and clove spice. A dense concentration of fruit in the palate with a smooth, luscious body and a supple tannin finish. This flavorful wine will shine with grilled and roasted meat dishes such as prime rib, rack of lamb, and pork loin, as well as with savory vegetable dishes such as eggplant parmigiana. - Winery

This Cabernet Franc is fermented and aged in the Loire style using stainless tanks. Aromas of red cherries with floral nuances fill the nose while a soft structure, fruit, and a bright finish dominate teh palate. T23 is excellent on its own, and will pair wonderfully with grilled, broiled or roasted chicken, pork or lamb accompanied by generous portions of herbs. - Winery

This is a deep ruby red, full bodied wine with medium tannins. Lots of red and blackberry flavors layered with herbs. this wine can stand up to the richest beef, game and tomato dishes. Drink now and put some in your cellar.

Anticipate the wildness of this cold climate 100% Cabernet Franc. Untamed, herbaceous red with vibrant acidity prepping the palate for savory food. Wild blackberry bramble with juicy fruit and subtle wood on the finish. Winner of New York Statersquo;s Governorrsquo;s Cup.

The Finger Lakes are noted for producing some wonderful Cab Franc (the main red grape of the Loire Valley in France) This barrel aged, deep red, full-bodied wine shows lots of herbal and raspberry flavors that lend themselves to beef dishes. Have it with dinner tonight or cellar it for many years to come.

Winner of New York Statersquo;s prestigious Governorrsquo;s Cup. New York and Canadian Cab Francs are nearly half the price of ones from California. Flashy, with the sassiness of cold climate wines, anticipate the wildness of 100% Cab Franc. An untamed herbaceous red with vibrant acidity prepping the palate for savory foods. Donrsquo;t be afraid! This tantalizing wine, like any wild blackberry bramble, comes with loads of juicy fruit, sweet black cherry on the nose, a jammy mouthfeel and subtle wood.
