Blended with 75% 2001 Merlot and 25% 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is an example of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. The Merlot contributes soft plum, chocolate and smooth tannins. The Cabernet lends the wine upfront blackberry aromas and enhances the length of the finish. The combination of these two yields a third significant character that is associated with "roundness", resulting in a wine that is full and supple. This is an excellent food wine. This wine pairs wonderfully with Pate and cheeses like Stilton, Gorgonzola or a rich Farmhouse Cheddar and just about anything off the grill.

Winemaker Tasting Notes: This wine is an example of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. The Merlot contributes soft plum, chocolate and smooth tannins. The Cabernet lends the wine upfront blackberry aromas and enhances the length of the finish. The combination of these two yields a third significant character that I associate with "roundness". The perception is that the wine is full and supple. There are no holes in the palate. This is an excellent food wine. I would pair it with a sirloin steak in Portobello reduction sauce using some of this wine as the base. Peconic Bay wines are the product of the soil and mild climate of the North Fork of Long Island, benefiting from the most days of sunshine and the longest growing season in New York State. Technical Notes: Appellation: North Folk of Long Island Harvest Date: 10/22/01 Brix: 23 pH: 3.32 TA: 7.2g/l Alcohol: 12.5% Bottling date: 8/10/04 Production: 424 cases » Return to Peconic Bay Wine List
