Salmon River Red NV

Member Review by MTB:

The Tasting Notes describe this as a “Bordeaux-style” blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a medium-bodied wine with a lovely deep garnet color. The nose has a strong, sweet fruit nose - quite lovely. I detected notes of fruit, possibly blackberry, in the mouth, and there are distinct smoky notes from the oak. The finish has a bit of a bite, and I suspect the wine would benefit from additional aging. Barrel aged for 20 months, the wine can age an additional 3-5 years. W

Priam Vineyards sits in the Salmon River watershed area, just minutes from Mohegan Sun Casino, Moodus Resort area, The Goodspeed Opera House, and a number of state parks, as well as the Airline Hiking Trail. The seasonally beautiful surroundings of the area offer a number of outdoor activities from hiking, fishing, canoeing and golf, to horse-back riding and cross-country skiing.Priam Vineyards' 40 acre farm has 24 acres of grapes in production, with a breathtaking 35 mile view of the New England countryside. We benefit from the unique microclimate of the hills of New London County, just 15 miles from Long Island Sound, where we grow classic European varietals: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay, Riesling, Muscat and Merlot as well as French-American hybrids: Cayuga and St. Croix. The rich gravelly soil mimics that of Graves, France. Our climate is very similar to the Alsation region of Northern France and Germany. This combination along with the sloping hillside and constant breeze provide the perfect climate for these varietals. Read less
