This strawberry- and watermelon-scented wine is far from wimpy. It's medium bodied and much rounder and fuller on the palate--but still balanced with gentle acidity and even a little tannic structure.There is a faint buttery note too, although malolactic fermentation was strictly avoided. For me, it's almost too bold, but it's still plenty fresh, refreshing and versatile.

A medium-light cherry red in the glass, it offers cherry and red raspberry fruit aromas on the nose with subtle black pepper—from that petit verdot no doubt—and just a little earthiness.No where near as flavorful as it is aromatic, it is light bodied, juicy and a little limp with simple red fruit flavors and just a little pepperiness. A little more body would really help here I think.

Upon first sip raspberry and strawberry burst forth, while a refreshing finish makes it a great match with any meal.

This red quaffing wine shows delicious North Fork fruit characteristics. It has bright red fruit and refreshing acidity with flavors of red cherries, licorice and the tell-tale graphite minerality. It has soft tannins, making this red smooth, soft, refreshing and elegant.

I have an announcement to make: I have a new favorite local red wine for every day, food-friendly drinking. Shinn Estate Vineyard's non-vintage Red ($14) is a blend of 75% merlot and 25% cabernet sauvignon. It isn't the most complex local merlot. It isn't the richest, deepest pour either...but it's ideally suited for food. Light-to-medium bodied, this wine actually has some pinot noir-like qualities despite the grapes involved. Light ruby in the glass, the nose is mainly raspberry and strawberris, with just the most subtle hints of spice. The palate is juicy red berries, hints of oak character, and terrific food-friendly acidity that is what makes this wine so charming. It's not really non-vintage (all of the grapes came from 2004) but they want to keep their options open for future releases. I can only assume the same is true with the name -- at 75% merlot, they could legally label it merlot.
