Wine Enthusiast Just Gave These North Fork Wines 90+ Scores

We all have our favorite go-to wines. If you’re looking to try out something new, here are our three East End picks from Wine Enthusiast’s September Buying Guide.

McCall 2012 Reserve Cabernet Franc (93)

While 16 months in French barriques lends roundness of mouthfeel, there’s hardly any oak embellishment here. Instead, this wine offers a showcase of perfumed, concentrated black cherry and berry that shines through. It’s rich and mouthfilling, yet impeccably structured, with a long, delicately tannic finish.

Paumanok 2015 Sauvignon Blanc  (90)

While delicate in body, this elegantly perfumed wine bursts with zesty citrus and crisp honeydew flavors. It’s vivacious, cutting and fresh yet persistent through a long, slightly chalky finish.

Raphael 2015 Rose of Pinot Noir (90)

Sweet-tart red cherry and raspberry flavors cling lusciously on the palate of this dry yet buoyantly fruity wine. It’s easy-quaffing yet elegant, marked by vibrant cranberry acidity on the finish.
