2018 Cabernet Franc - Glacier Ridge
The reds from Glacier Ridge Vineyard have a power and structure that is unique to the Finger Lakes; a credit to the spectacular vineyard they hail from and management by Tony Damiani. Put simply, our Single Vineyard bottlings from Glacier Ridge try and stay out of the way of the vineyard and let the fruit and vintage speak for themselves. The result is classic, ripe Cabernet Franc; structural complexity and length on the pallet, raspberry and violet notes on the nose, all tied together by the smokiness that is typical of the Glacier Ridge Vineyard. The early winter months of 2018 were marked by relatively mild temperatures. The overall growing season was warmer than average, but the most notable aspect of the vintage was the intense amount of humidity in the region. Higher amounts of rainfall coupled with warm temperatures resulted in more than double the 70* dewpoint days than in previous years. Maintaining timely sprays and leaf thinning to increase air flow allowed for fruit to remain intact through the high disease pressure vintage. Continuing the trend of a very wet growing season, September and October continued to receive more rainfall than usual. Vineyard health and fruit development were closely monitored. Pick dates were scheduled in between rain events to allow the vines to dry out and concentrate flavors and sugars prior to harvesting.
