Made using the ancient European method of co-fermenting Syrah and Viognier fruit with indigenous yeasts. The fruit was sustainably farmed on our estate and harvested from a single vineyard. The 2015 vintage provided exceptional growing conditions. Thomas Matthews of Wine Spectator said “Plump and fruity, this red delivers black cherry, raspberry, black pepper and herbal flavors in a round texture, with light tannins and a spicy vanilla finish. Expressive and fresh.”
Full of dark juicy fruit, Taste Red has ripe and soft tannins complemented by a deep mouthwatering complexity. The 2014 vintage was unique and exceptional, perhaps the greatest growing season in 40 years of Long Island winemaking. Thomas Matthews of Wine Spectator said “Ripe, juicy flavors of black cherry and plum mingle with savory notes of dark chocolate and dried herb in this expressive red. Features a solid structure but remains graceful through the spicy finish.”
51% Merlot, 27% Syrah, 17% Petit Verdot , 5% Cabernet Franc.
Bedell has become synonymous with top Merlots for over 30 years. The 2015 vintage is no exception, following in the footsteps of the 2009 Merlot that was served at the Presidential Inauguration. Made from hand harvested sustainably farmed fruit. Jay McInerney of The Wall Street Journal said “Anybody who thinks they don’t like Merlot should try this one, fleshy but not flabby, this [is a] complex, aromatic, medium-bodied red.”
Our hand selected clones of this ancient noble grape are producing stunning wines. Aged in older French oak barrels to preserve its elegance and finesse, this wine was fermented with indigenous yeasts using our sustainably farmed estate grapes. The 2016 vintage was unique and exceptional. James Molesworth of the Wine Spectator said “[Rich Olsen-Harbich's] experience shows in the Bedell Cabernet Franc North, which offers a pure beam of red currant and bitter cherry fruit laced with subtle minerality and carried by moderate but persistent grip.”
Malbec is a rising star on Long Island, with early ripening times and intense color and flavors. This 100% varietal was made from sustainably farmed estate grown fruit, fermented with indigenous yeasts. The 2016 vintage was unique and exceptional. Ed McCarthy, the James Beard Award winning Author of Wine for Dummies said “A rich, supple, concentrated marvel that was the best red wine of the day for me.”
Musée is our ultimate expression of North Fork terroir. The wine is powerful, with a show-stopping core of ripe fruit and a complex array of flavors and textural nuances. The 2013 vintage was unique and exceptional, perhaps the greatest growing season in 40 years of Long Island winemaking. Ben O'Donnell of Wine Spectator said “Bedell Musée, made only in the best vintages, has become something of a grand vin of New York.”
