Winemaker Notes

Dark, red brick in color. Fantastic aromas such as vibrant cassis, ripe black fruits, and finely toasted sandalwood fill the glass backed by dark chocolate, roasted coffee, and some classic iodine notes. The mouth-feel is rich and fills up the whole pallet. There is great concentration and loads of soft velvety tannins. Beautifully balanced by great minerality and lush ripe fruit, the wine has a long finish with wonderful intensity, playfulness, elegant spice and a lovely earthiness that provides great texture and structure. This is a classic style big Cabernet Franc from a great vintage - a perfect companion to food.

Serve slightly below room temperature. Pair this special wine with big flavors, such as lamb, steak, aged cheeses and good quality chocolate with a high percentage of cacao. Or enjoy it on its own...with no distractions.

Blend: 87% Cabernet Franc, 13% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 90
The 2015 Cabernet Franc Caya was mostly sourced from the winery's own 1991 plantings and Surrey Vineyard, with 13% Merlot from McCullough Vineyard, all aged for 20 months in 30% new French barriques. It comes in at 13.5% alcohol. This is not a deep, fleshy wine, but it is a perfect food wine that is still chock-full of juicy fruit and flavor. Elegant and fresh, it has a bright, lifted feel, plus those predictable traces of herbs and olives on the finish. They nuance the fruit, but that's not all there is. This often seems more concentrated in fruit flavor than you might infer from the wine's elegance and freshness. The tannins are very ripe, but there is some gentle grip on the finish. It should age reasonably well, too, but you can drink this right now.

Wölffer Estate, an American Winery in the Classic European Tradition in Sagaponack, New York: Here, in the heart of the Hamptons, a collection of quaint villages stretched like a string of pearls on the shores of the Atlantic, is Wölffer Estate, a winery like none other on the east end of Long Island.

Owned by Hamburg-born Christian Wölffer, the 55-acre winery, located between Southampton to the west and Easthampton to the east, is at once an American winery but with a decidedly European character, both in its spirit and its wines. The winery currently produces 13,000 cases annually.

Under winemaker and general manager Roman Roth’s meticulous care, Wölffer Estate wines embody the region as well as a classical style of winemaking, with a rich concentration of fruit and lively acidity born of the unique terroir of these Sagaponack vineyards, similar in some respects to conditions in Bordeaux. In fact, it is the condition of the local soil, called Bridgehampton loam, a by-product of the glacial moraine that formed Long Island, that provides a perfect host for grapevines.

Long Island

A far-reaching peninsula extending into the Atlantic Ocean from the city of New York, the Long Island appellation includes The Hamptons and North Fork AVAs. With a maritime climate and conditions not unlike that in Bordeaux, the region excels in the production of Bordeaux varieties, namely Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

Cabernet Franc

The subtler and more delicate of the Cabernets, Cabernet Franc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. While both are important grapes in modern day, high quality Bordeaux, interestingly, Cabernet Franc most likely originated from the Basque region of France sometime during the middle 1600’s. Today Cabernet Franc produces outstanding single varietal wines across the wine producing world, with some of its most classic examples from France’s Loire Valley, in the regions of Chinon, Bourgueil and Saumur-Champigny. Outside of France, Cabernet Franc performs quite well in parts of California, New York and Virginia. It is also a great blending grape.

In the Glass

Cabernet Franc typically tastes of red raspberries, cherries and herbs, with a stunning perfume of violets, tobacco and spice.

Perfect Pairings

Mouthwatering acidity makes Cabernet Franc an incredibly food-friendly wine, helping to cut through the richness of fatty meat dishes. It especially shines in tandem with lamb, and its affinity for the spice cabinet allows it to pair perfectly with Chinese dishes prepared with Szechuan pepper and five-spice.

Sommelier Secret

One of California's best-kept secrets is the Happy Canyon appellation of Santa Barbara. Here Cabernet Franc shines as a single varietal wine or in blends, expressing sumptuous fruit, savory aromas and polished tannins.
