2013 Reserve Merlot

$ 35.00


Made only in the best of vintages, the Reserve Merlot showcases the best that this New York grown grape has to offer. 2013 was a near perfect growing season for the North Fork of Long Island, resulting in balanced and bold red wines. This full-bodied red stands up beautifully with heavy dishes and is a great wine to curl up with on the couch!

Winemaker’s Tasting Notes:

This Merlot is blended with 3% Cabernet Sauvignon to achieve balance, resulting in a wine that bursts with elements of plum, cherry, mocha, and fresh herbs while maintaining the marked salinity known for the region.

Awards:

  • Silver Medal at the 2017 New York Wine & Food Classic
