Paumanok Assemblage 2014
|Appellation||North Fork of Long Island|
Wine EnthusiastCellar Selection. While a shade brighter and brisker than the 2013 Assemblage, this gorgeously composed Bordeaux blend offers invigorating bursts of blackberry and plum flavors nuanced with spice, vanilla and fur. It's full bodied and texturally quite satisfying, yet stately, framed by crisp cranberry acidity and penetrating tannins. It's delicious now, but should gain further complexity and depth from 2020-2030.
