Los Angeles Times Lauds Long Island Wines

Long Island wines recently got some nice press in the Los Angeles Times, where a tasting panel explored some wines of a few “other” states— Arizona , New York , and Texas —that often received high marks. The New York selection was all from Long Island , which is best known for Merlot and Chardonnay, but the panel was particularly struck with Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. Among the panels favorite Long Island wines were three from Wolffer Estate, two each from Lenz and Paumanok, and one each from Channing Daughters, Jamesport, and Shinn Estate.
