Paumanok 2002 Grand Vintage Merlot (North Fork of Long Island)

Wood plays a leading role in this wine, offering brown spice and pickle barrel aromas as well as vanilla, tobacco and spice flavors. In between there are aromas of glove leather and flavors of sweet red fruit that pick up intensity toward the finish. Medium-bodied, with solid tannins, the wine nevertheless comes across as bulky and without the acidity many Long Island wines have.
