Paumanok

Paumanok (Po-ma-nock – Native American for Long Island) was founded in the spring of 1983.  This leading 103 acre estate in Long Island is entirely owned and managed by Ursula and Charles Massoud, and their three sons, with eldest Kareem in charge of the wine-making.  Born and raised in the "Old World", wine has always been a part of their lives and continues at Paumanok Vineyards.

Varieties planted include Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.  The traditional dense planting of the vineyards at 1100 vines per acre produces more concentrated fruit and therefore higher quality wines. For the wines, only estate grown grapes are used and production is limited to fewer than 9000 cases in total across a large range of wines. 

The winery is a renovated turn-of-the-century barn that houses a fermentation tank room and lab. The spacious tasting room was built on top of the barrel cellar.  Paumanok continues a tradition - a passionate commitment to make fine wines.   For more information, go to www.paumanok.com

 

 ï»¿“Veteran Charles Massoud and his oldest son, Kareem, are practicing increasing selectivity and sorting of fruit as well as ever more sensitive and targeted extraction, and their 2007s build on and refine the success of their 2005s.” 

David Schildknecht, erobertparker.com 


“Representing their first-ever Merlot bottling with this site designation (and their original 1986 block), the Massoud’s 2007 Merlot Tuthills Lane is unblended and was aged in largely new barriques. Its ripe cassis, dark cherry, and blueberry are accented with mint and cherry pit, iodine and bittersweet herbal and floral essences. This shows formidable concentration and ripeness yet exhilarating sheer refreshment and an uncanny sense of lift. It’s only 13.5% alcohol, by the way. I would anticipate a dozen years’ satisfaction, and probably not start popping corks for 3-4 years.”  92 points
