Shinn Estate Vineyards Merlot North Fork Estate 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 81% Merlot and 19% Cabernet Franc, this elegant wine exhibits gentle tannins, flavors of red plum fruit and aromas of chocolate, coffee and vanilla. We recommend drinking our Estate Merlot upon release though it will age well and continue to evolve for 5 - 7 years

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.

Medium ruby red in the glass, the nose is youthful with fresh red cherries, plums and toasty oak aromas. On the palate, similar red fruit character is accented by subtle nutmeg and clove, and gently gripping tannins.
