(Lenz Winery Merlot Old Vines North Fork Long Island) Black plum and cherry aromas are accented by leather, cured meat, dried herbs and subtle brown spice on an expressive, mature nose.
The palate is medium bodied with smooth, mature tannins that are well integrated across the palate framing dark fruit, leather, a little bit of that gaminess, licorice and a little earthy herbal character. The finish is long and ends with leather and spice.
It is a joy to drink wines like this, that prove that the drinking window for Long Island wines is far larger than some experts would have you believe.
