Floral Terranes Petit Verdot, North Fork of Long Island 2022

Two Long Island natives, Erik and Benford, have been slowly and quietly searching out this landscape, using Erik’s 18th century home in Rosyln as their base and (literally) garage winery. Using backyard vineyards farmed organically by locals and natural methods in their winemaking, Floral Terranes is a winery to look out for future vintages. Their production is tiny so run, don't walk. 

Notes on the vintage from Vom Boden:

Erik and Benford are doubling down on Petit Verdot. I'd write something like, "Make Petit Verdot great again," but my hope is that those jokes are finally done for. This is super compelling and if someone were to try and make an argument for Petit Verdot on Long Island, well, here you go. The wine is bull's blood, dank near inky in color; the fruit profile matches these tones, with dark blackberry and plum edged by pepper, dried spices leather and dried tobacco. But what I really love about the wine is the energy, the satiny textural and super-fine tannins. This is a star.
