75% chardonnay, the blend also contains gewurztraminer, vignoles and trebbiano. OK, pineapples leap out at me when i drink this wine! Very rich, low acid, but it just about holds its balance. Very thick and viscous. Nice nose. Very lush - id try pouring it over icecream!

Beautifully sweet nose of peaches and almonds. Hints at olives. High sugar and low acidity make the wine overly flabby and out of balance. The finish, however is much better and redeems the wine well.

All earth, tobacco and pepper up front giving way to cranberry, watermelon and coco powder. Fresh and light on the palate. Seamless, balanced and above all, very tasty and drinkable.

Nose that’s lightly floral and filled with ripe peach and apricot aromas. This stone fruit character carries over to palate, with balanced sweetness and superb acidity.

ripe, blackberry-laced, earthy nose is enchanting with hints of cedar and violets in the background.The palate is just as ripe with sweet blueberries, blackberries and leather with subtle notes of toffee, caramel and wet earth. Ripe tannins provide well integrated structure and a long, dry finish makes this a real stunner. Again, this isn't a wine I can afford to drink every day, but it's delicious none the less.

Fruity nose layered with strawberries, cherries and hints of apricot and grapefruit. Extremely fresh and fruity in the mouth with red berries and citrus, it’s crisp, but doesn’t feature as much acidity as the 2003, giving it a slightly fuller mouthfeel that is almost creamy on the finish.

A blend of 78% cabernet franc, 15% cabernet sauvignon and 7% merlot and it is definitely the star of their latest round of red releases. Though clearly not priced for everyday consumption, the ripe, blackberry-laced, earthy nose is enchanting with hints of cedar and violets in the background.The palate is just as ripe with sweet blueberries, blackberries and leather with subtle notes of toffee, caramel and wet earth. Ripe tannins provide well integrated structure and a long, dry finish makes this a real stunner. Again, this isn't a wine I can afford to drink every day, but it's delicious none the less.

The color is dark red with a faint brown hue. Thenose suggests vibrant fruit of blueberry and blackberry jam, a hint of white pepper, and fine vanilla and cedar notes. The mouth-feel is elegant, with wonderful ripe fruit notes balanced by soft-layered tannins. The finish is smooth, with notes of dark chocolate and fine acidity.

Cabernet Franc, known to flourish in the Loire Valley, also thrives on Long Island. Enjoy this bottle's spicy black fruit and its relative ease (in contrast to its Loire Valley counterparts, which tend to be more structured).

A beautiful blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and a splash of Barbera this wine is balanced with dark plum, dried cherries, and licorice rounded by well integrated oak tones. Best with red meat, lamb, dried aged cheese, truffle-infused pasta or just savored on its own.

Golden in color with fine strings of beads, showing off the well-integrated bubbles. The wine is loaded with wonderfully clean and classic aromas of fine yeast, almonds, light toast and lots of fruit of ripe pear and apples. The mouth-feel is rich yet elegant with a beautiful mousse, fine roasted nuts and racy acidity. The wine is rich and concentrated with lively acidity making it age-worthy and a fabulous food wine.
