- Comments Off on Bedell Winery Cabernet Franc – Food-kind Wine
Sandwiched between the Atlantic ocean and Long Island Sound, on the northern fork split by a chain of bays, is a sustainable winery situated in a place unlike many others. The unique placement of Bedell Winery, on the island is the perfect allegory to their great tasting cabernet fanc. Shifting the thought that only worthwhile wine churns in Napa, bringing linage to the east coast, and making the wine ‘right’ is what what this 30 year old winery is all about. They attribute a lot of the flavor to their proximity to two large water fronts, as well as the “ancestral glacial plain of silt loam and sandy gravel.” We can’t put all of the credit on the soil, Bedell does a mighty fine job brining us great flavor and powerful aromatics reminiscent of the local flora. A great wine to have with fish and complements most dinners – a very food friendly wine.
We loved the 09 Cab Franc and have it waiting for you on our shelf to take home or to enjoy with a meal in the cafe.
