2001 Fox Run, Finger Lakes, Cabernet Franc ($17.99). Alcohol level is 12%. This was the wine along with their Lemberger that we all thoroughly enjoyed with lunch at Fox Run, even WW. Gives you varietal floral aroma on the nose along with cassis and plums there and on the tongue tip. Very complex and full with a tinge of Senaca dirt on the palate. Only hints of oak and tannin. The finish lingers and lingers.

It needed all this to handle our New Year's dinner of Slow Roasted Duckling in orange sauce, with wild rice stuffing.

It was about time they poured a red that wasn't a Rose. Was a nice Franc. WW

Enjoyed the '02 we picked up at the winery last May. It is everything the '01 was and more. Had it with Christmas dinner of roast goose with mashed potato stuffing, braised red cabbage, and green beans almondine. When we roast the goose we pour off all the fat an hour before it is due to be done (we roast a 12 pounder for 5 hours at 324 degrees F). Then for the last hour we baste it with a fourth cup of Port every 15 minutes. This leaves a residual in the bottom of the roaster that makes the best gravy in the world. The stock we make the whole time it is cooking with the wings, innards, and neck with arromatics and herbs; help with gravy too!
