    Ravines Wine Cellars

  • What we love

    One of the stars of the Finger Lakes region, Ravines Wine Cellars is famous for its Rieslings, but its red wines are now getting more of the attention they deserve. The 2017 Cabernet Franc is expressive, fresh, structured and classic. A deep ruby red color, this wine displays notes of ripe plum, juicy bramble, and red berry fruit, with baking spice and earthy aromas. There are some green nuances around the edges reminiscent of olives and dried herbs. Soft tannins and a round mouthfeel make this wine very food-friendly and perfect for everyday drinking.

About this Wine

Cabernet Franc is poised to become the flagship red variety of the Finger Lakes. It is particularly well suited to the growing conditions of the Finger Lakes, both in terms of temperature resistance and length of growing season. This Cab Franc is another super value from Ravines. It's very well priced, savory, and delicious – what’s not to like? Enjoy!
