2013 Dos Aguas
The 2013 Dos Aguas red is 50% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc and 8% Malbec, aged for 21 months in mostly used French oak. It comes in at 13.5% alcohol. 100% estate fruit from the Macari family farm in Mattituck.
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 climate that protects our vineyard and encourages a slow, steady ripening. “Entre Dos Aguas” is also one of Alexandra Macari’s favorite flamenco songs by Spanish flamenco guitarist, Paco de Lucia.
“At the reasonable end of the price scale, this focused red blend is well done and a bargain. Showing fine concentration relative to its level and its region, it adds some complexity of flavor, including a hint of beef and black fruit. This seems refined, sophisticated and understated, a bit cool, but carefully constructed. Very impressive and over-delivers.” – Wine Advocate, 90 points
