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.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

My favorite merlot from long island trip



Tasting Notes:

This Reserve wine is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot . Possessing refined tannins, elegant flavors of blackberry and black plum, distinct aromas of violet, and aged 20 months in small French oak barrels, our Nine Barrels is the crown jewel of our cellar.
