My favorite NY State wine, being from that area. This is a bordeaux style blend, medium bodied, dry red that reminds me of the Italian reds that I love so much.

    The Bordeaux style blend is soft and silky in the mouth with essence of cherry on the finish. Great with food yet excellent on its own; an "everyday" wine.

    New York reds are overcoming their reputation for being too young or too sweet. Eclipse is made with Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from the North Fork of Long Island, blended and bottled at Heron Hill. A medium-bodied wine with delicate tannins and blackberry, cherry and cranberry flavors.

    Warm and fragrant, this red blend is a jazzy mouthful of straight-on blackberry flavor with a hint of spice around the edges.

    A traditional Bordeaux-style blend that's smooth and supple, with ripe plum, black cherry and berry flavors.

    Deep garnet hue, black cherry, tea and vanilla scents, with a wisp of earthiness.

    There is a general belief that New York red wines have a bad reputation for being too young or too sweet. Things are changing, and New York reds are improving with time. This award winning winery is a fine example. Eclipse is a blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The grapes come from the North Fork of Long Island, and are then blended and bottled at Heron Hill. A medium-bodied wine with delicate tannins and blackberry, cherry, and cranberry flavors, this wine can stand up to other reds from California and France in its category. And because its a New York red, it is high in resveratrol. A must try.

    This is a Meritage wine meaning that it's made from a blend of grape varieties in the image of Bordeaux. Essentially, this is a blend of equal parts Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. This is a a lighter-styled, dry red wine with incredibly easy-drinking berry fruits and super soft tannins.

    A traditional Bordeaux-style blend that is supple and smooth, with ripe plum, black cherry and sweet tobacco flavors.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Wine Characteristics While the varieties used in Eclipse are the same varieties traditionally used in Bordeaux style blends, we feel our wine drinks more like a Loire Valley red or northern Italian red. The fruit is bright, the body is medium weight and the acidity is poised to really enhance great food instead of being too overpowering with excessive alcohol or new oak. Food Pairings This is a good everyday wine that works with a range of foods from pizza to herb encrusted lamb. This is a red that, although not a Pinot Noir, could pair well with salmon. Serve at 65° and let warm in glass to gently open the bouquet. Awards 88 Points - Beverage Testing Institute
