Our 2010 Merlot Reserve was crafted from an outstanding vintage. The summer of 2010 was hot and dry — ideal for producing high quality fruit. Bright ruby red in the glass, the wine shows notes of ripe red fruits, dark chocolate and a touch of plum. The Merlot has an elegant structure and a long, lingering finish. This wine was aged in 25% new French oak for 26 months. It may be enjoyed now but will continue to evolve for the next 10 years. 100% estate fruit from the Macari family farm in Mattituck.
