Dos Aguas is the winery’s red Bordeaux blend, mostly Merlot (81%), with roughly equal portions of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. It was aged for 26 months in French oak (only 24% new) and comes in at 14.2% alcohol. Elegant in the mid-palate but a bit tight on the finish, this is a pleasing Bordeaux blend that has freshness, some complexity and a serious feel to it. It retains its balance all the while. If someone told me in a blind tasting that this was a Cru Bourgeois, I wouldn’t be all that surprised. It does ”suave” very well, while not calling attention to itself at any point.
“Our ”Dos Aguas” blend represents the ”two waters” that surround our vineyard on the North Fork of Long Island. To the south of our vines lies the Great Peconic Bay and to the north, the Long Island Sound. These two bodies of water create a unique growing climate and encourage a slow, steady ripening. We are pleased to introduce the first vintage of our white blend, Dos Aguas.” – the winery
