Carpé Vino Arenosa, Merlot (2010)
Grape: Merlot, Petit Verdot, Syrah
Geography: North Fork, Long Island, NY
Winemaker Josh Carp presents wines from the North Fork of Long Island. Carpe Vino captures local terroir at its best. A vineyard manager out on the East End, Josh lives with his family in Brooklyn. It doesn’t get any more local than this.
Nothing says North Fork more than Merlot and 2010 produced this deep and delicious red. Berry and black currents are suggested by this blend of 93% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Syrah. 2010 was an exceptional year, dry and warm late into the season this wine comes loaded with character. Elegant and fruit-driven it gets better and better after it is opened and shared with friends.
