Congratulations to Rivendell Winery as their 2002 Merlot was mentioned in a recent New York Times article as a great match with your Thanksgiving Turkey. The story was about 4 people who get together for a pre Thanksgiving meal. Each one of them brings two different wines costing no more than $25 to enjoy with the feast.
The article said "Even more surprising was Florence’s wine, a 2002 Rivendell merlot from the North Fork of Long Island, which tasted of plums and flowers. It reminded me that Long Island merlots are very different from California’s, often leaner and snappier, and well worth investigating."
