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.
Opened a few minutes in advance. Aroma of forest floor and black fruit. Anise dominates, with tart red fruit underneath. Tart vegetal licorice finish. Balanced, with firm acids (probably too firm for some) and pleasant flavors. Simple, good to drink now, further positive development seems unlikely to me.
