Review date: August 6, 2016

Wine Review: This dark red colored blend from Long Island opens with a fragrant and attractive blueberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is blackberry with notes of old oak. I also detected a hint of black olive and black pepper. The finish is dry and its mild tannins linger for a little while. This wine would pair nicely with a mushroom burger. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The wine formerly-known-as Bond. Plush cherry and currant washes blend with some buttoned-down Cabernet Sauvignon creating an elegant overview of the North Fork. Clearly a wine you can Bond with!

"Wine to me is passion. It’s family and friends. It’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It’s culture. It’s the essence of civilization and the art of living."
