Lenz 1997 Estate Bottled Merlot (North Fork of Long Island)

Cellar Selection

According to winemaker Eric Fry, the big reason for the quality of this wine is vine age-a venerable (by LI standards) 22 years. This is a big, dense wine pumped full of black cherries and capped off by hints of cedar and coffee. Right now it's more about potential than pleasure-try to hold a bottle or two for five years.
