A lush, approachable wine that features cherry and tobacco aromas and flavors. Tart acidity spices up the softly tannic finish, giving it a lively feel that would pair well with a variety of foods
A well-balanced barrel-fermented Chardonnay with harmonious notes of apple, toast and lemony citrus followed by a slightly nutty, vanilla-kissed finish. Moderate weight with a voluptuous mouth countered by vibrant acidity; easy to drink, just not very unique.
A complex opening of leather, plum, vanilla and gingerbread leads to a crisp palate with intense cherry notes. Lacks the multi-dimensionality of a top wine but the touches of youthful fruit on the medium finish are guaranteed to charm. Drink now.
Rich buttery aromas are quickly supplanted on the palate by crisp flavors of pears and lemons. Shows good persistence on the finish. The combination of butter and citrus seems like a natural to accompany a basic beurre blanc.
Lieb’s regular Merlot is a solid effort, showing Long Island flavors in a nicely structured wine. Cranberry, sour cherry and spice have a smooth, chocolaty feel from the nose to the palate, while the tannins suggest aging potential. A good wine from a solid producer. Drink over the next five years.
This Chard offers a delicate but intricate bouquet with aromas of apple, vanilla spice and tropical acidity. The palate shows more floral and ripe red apple flavors, with a moderate weight in the mouth and a balanced finish. A solidly made and easy-to-enjoy wine.
