Macari 'Life Force' Cabernet Franc, North Fork of Long Island 2022


Macari produces some of the finest grapes grown on Long Island, thanks to the family's devotion to truly sustainable viticulture.  Joseph Jr. and Alexandra Macari planted the family vineyard in 1995, and after Joseph Jr. studied with some of the great names in biodynamic viticulture he began holistic management of the property, complete with cattle and a whole field devoted to compost.  Now in the third generation, the next Joseph Jr. has succeeded as Vineyard Manager, his sister Gabriella is Director of Operations, and worldwide vine veteran Byron Elmendorf has taken charge of the cellar. 

This is a true cool climate Cabernet Franc from the North Fork of Long Island.  2022 was a stellar year for the region, with a long dry summer that allowed red grapes to ripen slowly but fully.  Fermented in 100% concrete eggs provides great texture to this medium-bodied Cabernet Franc. with notes of crunchy red fruit and dried herbs on the finish.

Grape: Cabernet Franc 

Viticulture: Sustainable implementing biodynamic practices
