Quick Review: Benmarl Winery Slate Hill Red

US, NY, Hudson Valley, Benmarl Winery, Slate Hill Red 2011
++ // Spicy-Smooth // Leather, Dried Cherry // Earth, Pepper, Tobacco, a hint of Cherry // Light-Medium

Made from Long Island grapes, this was a very light red, especially for the flavor profile. The flavors were light and powerful, and could hold up to being served slightly chilled. An excellent, versatile table wine.

A humid day means our slightly chilled Slate Hill Red "sweats" a bit.
