Macari Vineyards Dos Aguas 2007

OK, I'm about to go on a major Long Island wine jag, because I've tasted a huge number in the last few weeks. So you'll have to bear with me. I'll try to break it up.

First on the list is Marcari Vineyards Dos Aguas.2007. This is a magical blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 4% Malbec. This is big deep wine. Tastes more California than New York, with lots of dark, stewed fruits like plums, dark cherries, and other jammy flavors.. A touch of tobacco, lots of spice notes, and a bit of vanilla. Nice tannins and balance. An excellent wine. My new favorite Macari red.

A big, elegant, drinkable red wine. I think tastes like one of the best red wines made on the east coast!
