The Grapes of Roth 2012 Merlot (North Fork of Long Island)

Editors' Choice

Since its inception, Wölffer winemaker Roman Roth's namesake Merlot has been one of the best wines in Long Island. The 2012 bottling is no exception. It's a bold, densely fruity wine full of luscious black cherry, plum and currant flavors. Powerful yet finessed, it's keenly anchored by a core of cranberry acidity and complexities of bramble, violet and spice. Delicious already but sure to improve through at least 2030. Anna Lee C.
