Gathering Cabernet Franc

Blended barrel-aged sour w/ cabernet franc grapes

Gathering Cabernet Franc began with grapes sourced from Michelangelo Vineyards in Cutchogue, NY. The fruit underwent a 60 day carbonic maceration and spontaneous autofermentation. Similar to Gathering Sauvignon Blanc, we racked the free run juice to oak barrels before blending 1 year old sour beer with the Cabernet Franc pomace. This beer abounds with waves of brettanomyces on the nose with intensely jammy red fruit on the palate. Lively carbonation, medium acidity, and noticeable tannins compliment a complex melange of chili pepper, goose berry, and raspberry. We conditioned this beer for 7 months in the bottle.
