Brotherhood Winery Strikes Gold With Cabernet!

Brotherhood America's Oldest Winery, Ltd. 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon won Gold in the 2006 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition!

This dry red wine is produced from fully ripened grapes harvested from the north fork of Long Island; vinified in a Bordeaux technique in full contact with the skins to extract maximum color, flavor and tannins in a rotating tank; then aged in small limousin oak 58 gal. barrels for a period of 2 years.

The cabernet is no stranger to the winner's circle. It's won such awards before, including, Bronze Medal, 2003 NYS Fair Commercial Wine Competition. Silver Medal, Hudson Valley Wine Competition 2004. Bronze Medal, NY Wine & Food Classic 2004. Gold Medal, 2006 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition.

And Wine Spectator rated 85 on May 2006.
