An aromatic fusion of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Viognier that exhibits sultry aromas of ripe honeysuckle, rose petals and citrus zest sway alluringly around flavors of lime, honeydew melon, juicy pears and squash blossoms.

30th Anniversary Merlot, North Fork of Long Island

The 2010 Merlot was harvested from three different vineyard sites, fermented naturally using indigenous yeast, and blended after aging one year in French oak barrels. It is full bodied and juicy with fine ripe tannins. Heady aromas of dark berry fruit, vio- lets, and cedar envelop flavors of native brambles, wild beach plums, anise and savory herbs. The finish is long and pleasant with a lingering minerality that is characteristic of wines grown in the unique glacial soils of the North Fork.

Taste Red, North Fork of Long Island

Blend of estate grown Merlot, Syrah, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec is aged 12 months in a mixture of new and older French oak. Indigenous aromas of blueberry, brambles, violets and beach plums wrap around flavors of blackberry, black cherries, cedar, and coastal forest floor. Like a velvet bowl full of dark juicy berries, the tannins are ripe and soft, yet deep, well structured, and mouthwatering.
