2013 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
This Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon—only bottled in the best of vintages—is a true representation of the North Fork of Long Island. 2013 was an exceptional growing season and the resulting wines deserved a special designated bottling. This beautiful red wine is big, powerful, and exactly the type of wine you want on your dinner table—the bold flavors and intensity make this reserve red an excellent choice for any occasion.
Winemaker’s Tasting Notes:
Offering classic blackberry, olive, and leather components, this wine—comprised of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot, and 2% Merlot—is held aloft by firm tannins and robust structure. Vibrant with elements of cassis, bright red fruits, with a hint of jalapeño and smoke. Full of life now, yet extremely age-worthy, this wine will continue to develop in the cellar over the next 20 years.
