VinePair Recommends 2016 Cabernet Franc for Thanksgiving

vinepair.com, November 2018


"This would be a great choice for a place at the Thanksgiving table and beyond, a wine with the "weight" to withstand the onslaught of the food, and one that's refreshing enough to provide relief from it."

 

Lamoreaux Landing 2016 Cabernet Franc

Baked plum and cacao nib on the nose hints at this vintage's depth and intensity. Vivid black currant carries through the palate, laced with savory tones of oregano and black pepper, delicately balanced by a smoky, earthy finish. Enjoy with roasted poultry and savory vegetables, braised short ribs or horseradish mashed potatoes.

Wine Enthusiast, October 2017

Lamoreaux Landing 2015 Reserve Chardonnay (Finger Lakes) $20, 91 Points
While lavishly oaky and luscious in feel, this barrel-fermented Chardonnay maintains balance and levity. It's a ripe, plump wine, but fresh in acidity and delicate apple, lemon and spice flavors. A kiss of vanilla lingers nicely on the finish. –Anna Lee Iijima

The Good Life, Winter 2008

THE ICE WINE COMETH FROM THE GOOD LIFE  "On a blustery late November day, winemaker Mark Wagner heads south through the hillsides overlooking Seneca Lake. He passes bare vineyards picked clean in the harvest a month before. A mile or so south of the winery, he turns off into a dirt lane. Wagner pulls a few grapes, tastes, and tosses a few to his dog, Max. These grapes - hanging on the vine in the face of the wind, birds and the approaching frost - are special. They'll be turned into ice wine, a sweet nectarlike dessert drink. The Finger Lakes are a natural for ice wine production."

Drinks Magazine, September 2007

LAMOREAUX LANDING'S VIEW AND T23-CABERNET FRANC FIND APPROVAL IN DRINKS MAGAZINE "Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars, the northernmost winery in the Banana Belt (of Seneca Lake) and the tasting room with the best view, produces excellent dry and semi-dry Riesling, as well as luscious and fruity Merlots. One unique wine made here is the unoaked Cabernet Franc, T-23, named for its steel fermentation tank. I have tasted T-23 favorably against examples from the Loire Valley, and it remains one my favorite food wines."
