Overview - Dr. Konstantin Frank Cabernet Sauvignon (2017)

VINTAGE
The 2017 vintage was a study on how much weather conditions can vary from year to year. The 2016 growing year was very hot and dry with very little precipitation. Winter before the 2017 growing season was cold but our vines survived without any damage. The 2017 growing season was cooler with ample precipitation all year long with plenty of sunshine. That made for a vintage with good production and plenty of time to develop complexity.

VINEYARD
Cabernet Sauvignon was introduced to the Finger Lakes by our founder, Dr. Konstantin Frank, in the early 1960s as 1 of 66 experimental vinifera varieties. Our current Cabernet Sauvignon was planted in 1974 and 1997 on 3309 rootstock in our Keuka Estate vineyards. Vineyards on Keuka are shallow, shale-based soils which adds minerality, acidity, and elegance. Majority of the blend comes from Seneca Lake vineyards. The Banana Belt is a portion of land on the east side of Seneca Lake that receives the greatest amount of sun coupled with a location that is nearest the deepest parts of Seneca Lake, thereby having a greater impact on temperature.

THE WINE
Very aromatic with blackberry, bramble, ceder, chocolate, earth, and tobacco with nuances of caramel and forest floor. Moderate firm tannins with a strong structure leads a wine that will age for several years.

FOOD PAIRING
Cheeses (Aged, Blue), Fatty Meats (Braised, Grilled), Game Birds, Lamb, Thyme.
