Winemaker Gilles Martin Notes
VINTAGE NOTES A very good vintage year, 2008 growing conditions in Long Island were warm, with the same amount of degrees days as the exceptional 2007 vintage, but wetter during the fall. The grapes were picked in October at about 21 brix. TASTING NOTES Deep ruby in color, with rich aromas of black currant, blackberry, and blueberry and subtle accents of vanilla, black pepper and spice. Remarkably smooth on the palate, with a long length of finish. AWARDS Silver Medal, New York Wine & Food Classic Bronze Medal, Dallas Morning News Wine Competition Gold Award, Appellation America Best-of Appellation Silver Medal, Beverage Tasting Institute World Wine Championships
