Wolffer Estate Cabernet Franc 2015
Wölffer Estate, an American Winery in the Classic European Tradition in Sagaponack, New York: Here, in the heart of the Hamptons, a collection of quaint villages stretched like a string of pearls on the shores of the Atlantic, is Wölffer Estate, a winery like none other on the east end of Long Island.
Owned by Hamburg-born Christian Wölffer, the 55-acre winery, located between Southampton to the west and Easthampton to the east, is at once an American winery but with a decidedly European character, both in its spirit and its wines. The winery currently produces 13,000 cases annually.
Nose: Amazing aromas dark fruit notes of cassis, licorice, fine sandalwood, and dark chocolate are beautifully interwoven.
Palate: The mouth-feel is concentrated with prune and blueberry fruit. This wine has great structure and complexity with layers of velvety tannins and well-integrated oak.
Finish: This is a sophisticated and classic Cabernet Franc with fruit at the core from start to long finish.
Food Pairing: Serve slightly below room temperature. Pair with flank steak, sausages or cured meats.
