|Paul and Ursula Lowerre, vineyard owners, has released a new wine, a blend of 95% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc that exhibits a splendid growing season. This generous, easy to drink table red possesses ripe tannins, soft mouth-feel and complex aromatics of blueberries, copious amounts of mocha, black currants, loamy soil, earth, and spice box emerge from this Bordeaux-like blend, that can only be coaxed out of very healthy grapes in unusually good years. Great job Long Island. Three different fields of Merlot were blended to imbue this wine with balance and complexity. It is designed for uncomplicated enjoyment, and can stand to be slightly chilled.
