Monday Merlot by Kontokosta
Kontokosta is the most consistently enjoyable maker I have yet to experience on the North Fork. The wines are vibrant and exciting with a truly French inspired style. No murkiness or barny stuff in here.
The 2007 Blum Merlot is straightforward and packed with a medium acid from front to back that balanced with ripe summery red and black fruits. A little oak in there for an accent, but not overwhelming.
It’s a solid drink.
