i have had decent fl cabernet franc from 2006. atwater comes to mind. the best producers shine even in the bad years.

very excited for tomorrow.


Couldn't agree more regarding good winemakers and lesser vintages. I'm simply trying to counter, in advance, any critics who might think we're trying to position 2007 as the standard, average year. For now it's an outlier, but that might not be true going forward. And I've spoken to some winemakers who are more excited about the balance of 2008.

Vinny did a lovely job with Cab Franc in '06, as did Damiani and a few others. That said, tomorrow is going to be interesting to say the least.

Just a suggestion but I would look at involving more distributors for events like this. I'm currently in Boston for work and many of us in the distribution business have the ability to "tell our story" far and wide.


This tasting will probably appear in my column for the Democrat Chronicle--Rochester Magazine. If something from it sparks a column.

On my way to Canandaigua and can't wait to get into this tasting.

I tried close to ten cab francs from 2007 at the FL wine fest. I ended up buying the Miles 2006 Cab Franc at 2/$20.

Go figure.

Go Cab Franc! Go Cab Franc!...
