    January 1, 2010 - Enjoyed a bottle for New Year's Day. Relatively strong bouquet upon opening. Decanted and let stand for two hours. Strong flavors of black berries, vanilla. Not a typical North Fork wine at all. A bit out of balance - acidic. Still young and early. Let it sit for 2-3 more yers before enjoying.

New York Cork Report

  • By Lenn Thompson
    1/1/2009 (link) 3.5 out of 5 stars

    (Bedell Cellars Red Blend Musee) Made with 78% merlot, 17% cabernet sauvignon and 5% petit verdot, it is a fine effort that does a nice job balancing the power and intensity of the dry, hot 2005 growing season with a bit of elegance and emerging nuance. Right out of the bottle, the wine’s youth is strongly evident, making it a bit "California" in character with primary aromas and flavors of blackberry, oak and vanilla dominating. But with some time in the glass, secondary and tertiary flavors emerge, morphing what could have been just another over-oaked red into a wine with complexity and nuance. Dark berry and plum fruit character are joined by subtle cocoa bean, espresso, spice and herb notes. The tannins are well integrated and softer than you might expect. The finish is long and invites another sip.
