(The Grapes of Roth Merlot Long Island, New York) Made with fruit grown by Sam McCullough in his vineyard in Cutchogue (McCullough is also the vineyard manager at The Lenz Winery), this classy Long Island merlot displays bright red cherry aromas with pencil lead, minty menthol and gently earthy tobacco notes on the nose.
Elegant and seamless, the medium-bodied palate brings more, fresh red cherry flavors at first with subtle cinnamon spice that emerges with time in the glass. Framed by ripe, restrained tannins, the earthy-tobacco character from the nose steps forward on the palate on day two, teaming with minty-thyme flavors to bring depth and complexity, leading into a long, classy finish with distinct minerally flavors of pencil lead and wet gravel.
