Paumanok Assemblage 2010 Red Long Island Wine

$44.99

91 Wine Advocate, June 2015
“The 2010 Assemblage is a blend of 35% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Petit Verdot and 11% Cabernet Franc; aged for 16 months in French oak (30% new, the rest neutral). Rather sedate compared to some of the other Big Boys from Paumanok, this is elegant in most respects, while still retaining grip on the finish. It adds nuances and complexities of the type that Bordeaux often develops. Overall, it grows on you as it sits, showing persistence on that finish and drinking rather beautifully. Tasting it after some of the 2010 Cabernets and Merlots was probably a bad idea, because this tends to elegant and some of those were more powerful. Yet, with time, this showed beautifully and asserted itself. It can be approached now, but another year or two of cellaring would most assuredly help.” – Mark Squires, The Wine Advocate
