82pointsPalmer 2003 Merlot (North Fork of Long Island)

A smoked oak treatment in the barrels lends a unique nose to this plum and berry-forward wine. On the palate, the taste of that oak wanders into the realm of roasted, though the ripeness of the fruit helps to balance. Not much dimension. Pair with pork or red meat. Susan Kostrzewa
