Overview - Dr. Konstantin Frank Cabernet Sauvignon (2015)

Viticulture
Majority of the grapes come from vineyards on Seneca Lake where the warmer sites give us riper fruit aromas and flavors. The remainder comes from our Keuka vineyards which adds minerality and elegance. The 2015 vintage was similiar to the previous 2014 vintage; warm, dry weather with plentiful sun from mid-July to the end of September. Yields were lower in 2015 due to difficult weather in the spring. Havest was two to three weeks eariler than normal resulting in high sugar levels and excellent flavors.

Vinification
Immediately after harvest the grapes are de-stemmed and lightly crushed into temperature controlled stainless steel open-top fermenters and allowed to cold soak for a few days. The juice is fermented at low temperatures to preserve the more delicate flavors with manual punch-downs 3 times a day for good extraction of tannins. The wine was gently pressed and transferred into mostly French oak barrels, where it developed further complexity for 18 months before being bottled.

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.
