This Merlot-centric red is at the forefront of ripe, rich, and polished dinner wines from New York. It has great violet aromatics and blackberry and cherry flavors, all holding together very well through an elegant finish. It will enhance most any hearty entrée.
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.
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.
Warm and fragrant, this red blend is a jazzy mouthful of straight-on blackberry flavor with a hint of spice around the edges.
