It's a ripe, but surprisingly understated and agile red with blackberry, raspberry and plum on an expressive nose that is filled out with herbs, mocha, earth and vanilla.Similar flavors come through on the palate, with the addition of a minerally note on a medium-long finish. Medium-grip, but well-incorporated tannins provide nice structure and will give this wine some longevity, maybe 5-7 years.Today, it benefits greatly from an hour or two open, breathing.


Winemaker's Notes:

Philosophy on Soil: The soil is the breadbasket of great winemaking. In order to grow a great wine, the soil must be a living organism capable of feeding the vine. At Shinn Estate Vineyards, only naturally occurring substances are used to amend the soil and provide the necessary nutrients to maintain the vine's health and vigor. 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. Return to Shinn Estate wine list
