November 2020–New York State Regional Profile
Our Cabernet Franc is listed as one of the top 10 wines in New York from author Charles Curtis’s extensive tasting for this report.
Silver Thread Good Earth Cabernet Franc 2019–92 points
“Marvelously true to the Loire Valley tradition…initial aromas of ripe cherries with an earthy, mineral edge lead to a wine that is firm-textured, dry and fairly tannic, yet still generously fruity. The overall impression is one of lightness and elegance, but there is no lack of density here.”
Silver Thread Estate Riesling 2019–91 points
“Provides a ripe apricot and citrus fruit character with more slate-like minerality than usual for US Rieslings. There is an admirable concentration on the palate and a lively, fresh acidity that bring this to a noticeably complex finish.”
