At Shinn Estate Vineyards, growing a great wine is accomplished through gathering many diverse elements and combining them in harmony - Our vineyard practices are based on an ever-increasing diversity of plant material and beneficial insects. Our cover crop between vine rows contains as many as 25 species, while the vine plantings consist of numerous selections within each variety. We harvest and ferment our selections separately, blending them into a finished wine only after many blending trials. In the cellar, we use several French coopers for the barrels, and oak from several forests, all of which impart their individual aging characteristics to the Wine - From the vineyard floor to the bottle, our wines are the result of the diverse ecosystem we have created on the estate, coupled with meticulous winemaking and gentle aging in the cellar.

Complex and nuanced nose, showing intense red raspberry fruit with toasty oak, vanilla, spice, violet and orange zest. The palate is rich and flavorful with red raspberries, red cherries, tangerine, vanilla and sweet oak. The tannins are soft, the mid-palate round and mouth-filling. The finish is relatively long for the variety with a spicy note at the end.
