2011 Lamoreaux Cab Franc

I love Cab Francs! We just got back from our first ever trip to the Finger Lakes in New York State as part of a road trip. Our wine club has featured Lamoreaux wines before so stopping by this winery was a must. The Finger Lakes is a lovely picturesque place to sample wine! This wine is lighter in color almost garnet. On the nose some red berries are coming through. On the mid pallet the wine displays some nice black cherries along with a hint of sweetness. On the medium length finish the wine displays some lovely tannins. Not over the top at all. I would give it a solid 89 Yumm. $19.95 at the winery, sadly not available at the LCBO. We paired it with BBQd Ontario rack of lamb and it went very well.

From the winery’s web site:
Savory spices of oregano and thyme accentuate black cherry aromas on the nose. Soft tannins develop into flavors of raspberry, fresh ground coffee and smokey finish. Pair with braised shortribs, rack of lamb or grilled venison. Grape Variety: Cabernet Franc Appellation: Finger Lakes, Estate Bottled
Total Acidity: 6.02 pH: 3.5 Alcohol by Volume 13.1% Fermentation: Open top Vats
