Peconic Bay Winery Cabernet Sauvignon North Fork 2008

Member Review by enophiliac:

This is a great reminder of the versatility Cabernet Franc offers to the wine lover. Peconic Bay's maritime climate seems to coddle the Cabernet Franc grapes allowing them to ripen slowly. Nice extraction in the glass captures the eye, but, it's the intoxicating nose redolent in North Fork terroir, red fruits and smoke that really put the first sip over the top. I had the Peconic Bay Cabernet Franc with sweet potato gnocchi, forever roasted pork shoulder and rapini. The wine shined all the way through while the low alcohol allowed the food to shine. This is a food lover's best friend and definitely an affordable luxury.

The grapes, the progeny of the soil, are the key to any successful winer y. At Peconic Bay Winery, we have been entrusted with the care and nurturing of some of the oldest vines on the North Fork, a precious legacy. These fine assets, in the hands of individuals passionate about coaxing the best from the vine and the cellar, set the stage at our vineyard for the creation of premium varietal wines. We are committed to making wines of distinction from rolling acres of vineyards, sloping gently down to the Peconic Bay and rising majestically up to the Long Island Sound, in this bucolic corner of heaven known as the North Fork. We hope to make the experience of tasting our wines enjoyable and memorable for both the connoisseur and those with a more casual appreciation of wine. We look forward to welcoming you at Peconic Bay Winery on the Main Road in Cutchogue. Our wines are the product of the soil and mild climate of Cutchogue, Long Island, the town with the most days of sunshine and the longest growing season in New York State. Read less

Black cherry and black raspberry in the nose with a backbone of soft, ripe tannins and a long finish.

The nose is filled with blueberries and exotic Chinese five-spice, with dark chocolate and licorice accents. Those licorice-spice notes emerged even more on days two and three of tasting. On the fuller side of medium bodied, the palate brings ripe, dense black and blue fruits to the glass with licorice, spice and a little vanilla. The tannins are ripe and fine-grained, with enough grip to hint at at least short-term aging potential.

This wine is an excellent example of a maritime climate Cabernet Sauvignon. The tannins are ripe and firm enough to pair well with beef in rich reduction sauces while the acidity keeps the wine lively and enhances its longevity. There are interesting aromas of blackberry, cherry, herbs and toasted oak. The wine was aged 17 months in French oak barrels and was bottled without filtration.
