Robert Foley's Lot #333 is known as the ghost wine that survived Sandy.
A couple days after Hurricane Sandy this 100% Merlot survived in sealed tanks at the Storm torn Red Hook Winery. The Legacy Series Lot #333 is the actual 2010 vintage even-though it's officially a NV classification ( some 2011 & 12 merlot fruit as well) A delicious time capsule of our entire shop history, now available in it's 10th year. It is North Fork Merlot, somehow tasting fresh and complex at age 12. Highly recommended!
drinks way above its price point - History in a bottle!
Medium plus in body with polished tannins, dried red berry fruit, herbs, and just a dash of Long Island earthy funk.
