80 perc new french oak, which really comes through in the nose, with a bit of red fruit and tobacco, mild acid driven body. Tart finish
Deeper darker nose of black fruit and dark currants a little spice, black plum prunes, some dark chocolate on the palate, spiced cocoa, fuller bodied, tannic, balanced, would be good for a steak
Oaky nose, rose pedals. Slightly bitter finish, too peppery.
Berry explosion on the nose with a hint of vanilla. Dry dark fruit in the mouth with a soft tannic finish.
Food Pairings for Paumanok Tuthill's Lane Merlot
Ripe cassis, dark cherry, and blueberry are accented with mint and cherry pit, iodine and bittersweet herbal and floral essences. This shows formidable concentration and ripeness yet exhilarating sheer refreshment and an uncanny sense of lift.
