With 2017 came our first taste of the Paumanok Grand Vintage Merlot, and suddenly our spotlight was firmly fixed out east. Paumanok Vineyards is a family-run operation that has been producing wine on the North Fork since 1983. With over 100 acres under vine, they turn out one of the largest selections of quality wines in the state of New York. Owned and operated by Ursula & Charles Massoud, and with their son Kareem overseeing the vineyards and winemaking, Paumanok has truly carved out a name for itself in North Fork history. With the release of the 2013 Grand Vintage, Paumanok shows us that Merlot has found the perfect location to thrive. Only created in the best years from a selection of their highest-quality fruit, and aged in a combination of new and neutral French oak, it's a wine that pleases today on its primary fruit yet is guaranteed to mature beautifully in the cellar. ✦ Paumanok Merlot g rand v intage 2013 M s 93 » $32 "...A surprisingly sexy young Merlot with gorgeous fruit and a very graceful demeanor on opening. kept getting better, more serious, more structured..."
