This wine, from a small producer on Long Island's north fork, was a new find the last time we went for a drive out to the wineries. We came upon the Tasting Room quite by mistake...and what a tasty mistake it was. The Tasting Room is a co-op that offers up wines from some of the smaller wineries out east, including Broadfields.
I actually opened this bottle on New Years Eve as I prepared dinner for our guests...and it was absolutely spectacular. If you think you aren't a big fan of cab franc...please do yourself a favor and try this one.
According to the label, 2001 was a great year for this grape on Long Island...and after tasting this I certainly can't argue. It was intense but not overpowering...full flavored without being raw.
It was a delicious choice as I prepared dinner...so good, in fact, that much of the bottle was gone before our guests even arrived.
