2009 Roanoke Vineyards ‘Gabby’s’ Cabernet Franc, North Fork of Long Island

Crafted from grapes grown in just 12 rows of vines on the Roanoke estate, overseen by family patriarch Gabby Pisacano, this limited-release Cab Franc is rich and fruitful. Cherry and currant flavors dominate the palate, with nary a hint of bell pepper. More of a “food wine” than Roanoke’s “regular” Cabernet Franc bottling, the “Gabby’s” would pair nicely with Northern Italian pasta dishes, a big steak, or blackened fish.
MSRP: $43 (March 2013; Sold Out)
Wine Lines rating: 89
