Private label made by Louisa Hargrave with her daughter and son as a sentimental project. Never offered commercially. McCall Merlot fruit made at Lenz. Extremely fresh raspberry. Goosebumps. — 4 months ago
Fresh Syrah Merlot. — a year ago
After a little “unfurling”, this nicely concentrated 50% Merlot gem from Long Island legends McCall is elegant to say the least. Mouthfeel is full & silky and the finish is decent but not voluptuous. Dark fruits and a small dusting of herbs ￼from from the shaker give this a little more than one dimension of attack. Very good, but not great. Oak is balanced and integrated acid could give this another 6-10 sold years before declining — 3 years ago
It’s pleasant. Nothing really grabbing me here. Like underripe 🍓, basil, salinity, crisp 🤔 — 5 months ago
whole bunch lift.

I have not historically been a fan of NY state wines but a recent trip to the north fork of Long Island showed me the dramatic improvement of quality over the years. This Chardonnay has such purity of fruit with bursting apple and just a little oak. McCalls wines are stellar and I recommend a trip to their tasting room if you are in the area. You cannot buy their wines at stores with such low production. This one is only 125 cases folks!!! Great proof that Chardonnay can thrive in NY state! — 2 years ago
Cool vintage but still plenty of character. — 6 months ago
Medium + body, jammy, balanced and energetic. — 10 months ago
Incredibly complex structured wine coming out of one of my favorite producers on Long Island. You won’t find it in stores but definitely worth trying if you make it out there. Typically a grape that is blended with others, this one stands on its own. — a year ago
Clean, crisp, hint of apple. Remember foundry or trip to the vineyard when we got it! — 3 years ago
