Macari "HORSES" Sparkling Cabernet Franc 2015

We are thrilled for the second release of our Sparkling Cabernet Franc!

Why HORSES? Legend has it that the bluffs at the edge of Macari Vineyards are shaped like a horses head. Locals tell tales of the “Horsehead Bluffs”. Also, the Macari family also has two horses that, along with a herd of cows, contribute to their vineyard’s composting program. And, yes, the wine is also a secret tribute to the Patti Smith album, “HORSES”.

Harvested on 9/26/15, “single vineyard” from the Macari Cutchogue Cabernet Franc block. Whole cluster pressed, stainless steel fermented, second fermentation in bottle — traditional method, released undisgorged.

"An absolute pleasure to drink." — Lenn Thompson, The Cork Report/
