Food Pairings for Peconic Bay Winery Cabernet Sauvignon North Fork
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.
External Reviews for Peconic Bay Winery Cabernet Sauvignon North Fork
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.
