Yes, it has been a banner week for Long Island wine shipments here at VinoVerve! At Kevin’s office, I discovered the Wölffer 2003 Estate Selection Merlot. I suspect, I will need to cook up some lovely read meat to go along with it. I also got a lovely selection of Vosges chocolate bars for Valentines day… I wonder if any of those would work this wine….
We also received the Bedell 2006 Merlot and the 2005 Musée. I have always liked the Bedell Merlots so I am sure this will be excellent as well. The Musée will be the interesting experiment. It is a blend of 78% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. It seems to be taking the place of another favorite of ours, the Cupola wines which they stopped making a couple of years ago. This seems a higher end wine for them($65) and has a beautiful photo from artist/East End resident Chuck Close.
I get the feeling that I will have to plan three separate events around the tastings of these wines…
