Shalestone 2014 Cabernet Franc (Finger Lakes)

Despite the tough, rain-filled vintage, this is a strong showing from a producer that focuses on red grape varieties. A pristine nose of bramble berries, wild herbs, crushed black pepper and graphite sit over a core of dark cherry. Medium in body, silken in feel and supported by fine-grained tannins, the palate is persistent in tart dark cherry and cranberry, with more graphite and black pepper lingering on the finish.
