2015 Merlot

Flavors of blueberry, cranberry & juicy cherry

Aromas of black cherry, cedar, and vanilla. Flavors of blueberry, cranberry, and juicy cherry. Medium-bodied and supple with rich tannins.

2015 was warm and dry with low humidity. Perfect amounts of rain in July and September. Fruit was universally clean and very ripe. Long Island was blessed with another standout vintage.
