1997 Bedell Merlot Reserve

Zachys Power of Packaging - Jan 2016 (Smith & Wollensky (48th & 3rd Ave)): For a red wine from Long Island, this wasn't bad. It was much more alive almost 20 years later than I would have expected. Probably heading towards the end of life, but fruit still prevalent and if I'd drunk it blind I'd have put it more like 2008 or 2009.

That being said, I don't really like Long Island reds. I don't think the climate works for the grapes and while this was better than some, it wasn't my cup of tea. There's that kindof chemical-y taste that sometimes comes in wines that isn't a flaw but just part of the taste. This had that. Interesting to try once, wouldn't seek out again.

Plum, cherry, chocolate. Lots of nice low-alc, high-acid Merlots coming out of Long Island.

Violet hand soap, palate is spicy (oak spice), with decent tannic structure. More violets on the palate...which is very pretty. Lighter bodied especially for syrah, but very nice effort.

Pleasantly surprised by this after picking up three bottles at the winery on the North Fork. Can taste and smell the maritime influences. Tons of minerals and a pleasant salinity flavor. Not much fruit. Don't think this is long for the cellar, but will maybe forget about one until next year to see what happens. A tad overpriced too.

8/4/2015 - behm0027 Likes this wine: 88 points

Rusty brown color. Dark fruit, anise, tobacco, tar, cedar, earth (garden hose?). Oak is present but not overpowering. Still firm acidity and well-integrated tannins. Drinking well out of the bottle (no need to decant).

Solid, modest red that will go well with food. Cab Franc & merlot mix from Long Island grapes.

Slight opaque ruby colored, medium bodied, smokey, slightly earthy black cherry fruits with a hint of leather and cigar box on a slightly astringent tangy finish.

I had it by the glass on the North Fork. Very old world like claret with bright acidity and fresh fruit. Not a lot of complexity but nonetheless a solid effort. No rush to drink it, but don't see a lot of upside.

Slightly amazed this wine was still good after getting lost in the cellar for several years. Not the first time I have had the pleasure of finding a Bedell wine-find in the depths of the cellar. Usually it is a big red, but this white was very enjoyable on the patio on a summer afternoon. A touch more fruit and sweetness than I usually prefer, but enjoyable by all.

Medium color red and medium body, spicy with good tannins, pure/restrained style, almost pinot-like with a little cedar thrown in. So unlike the blueberry milkshake that so many of the WA merlots we're used to are, and much appreciated by the group. First bottle drained.

Bedell always does a nice job with their merlot. Recommend decanting for an hour or two prior to drinking. Or, give another year in the cellar. Very good, but has room to improve, too. 87-88
