2014 Merlot Reserve
From Macari Vineyards on the North Fork of Long Island, we tried the 2014 Merlot Reserve.
Macari is a third-generation family owned and operated winery with 500 waterfront acres in Mattituck. They're dedicated to regenerative farming and understanding how ideal a location they have for producing Merlot.
Their wines consistently win awards in competitions around the world. Aged over a year in oak and now in the bottle for eight years, this wine is indeed worthy of Reserve status.
Bright berry notes leap out of the glass on the nose, and on the palate it's all elegance and finesse, enticing you to discover and rediscover its many lovely layers of flavor. The ABV is 13.3%
