This classic old-world style red is a beautiful representation of North Fork Merlot. The staple of Long Island Wine Country, Merlot is wonderfully well suited to our cool, maritime climate with consistent ripening and excellent aging potential.
Red fruit, hints of cardamom, tarragon and anise on the nose, and with red cherries, currants and raspberry on the palate. A medium bodied red with soft tannins. It is elegant with a light hint of vanilla and a seamless, silky finish.
This bold and delicious Merlot showcases the depth of the varietal and pairs beautifully with a wide range of foods including cheese, pasta, pizza, roasts, beef stew and more.
