Shinn Estate Vineyards Red Bordeaux Blend North Fork Wild Boar Doe 2005

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, we use only naturally occurring substances to amend our soil and provide the necessary nutrients to maintain the vine's health and vigor. Winemaker's Notes: Our playful "wild" Bordeaux blend of 40% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Malbec, 15% Petit Verdot, and 5% Cabernet Franc. Food Pairing Notes: Spicy and aromatic, our "wild boar doe" pairs perfectly with highly seasoned seafood stews, roasted meats and full flavored ripe cheeses. Return to Shinn Estate wine list

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.

The nose showed ripe strawberry with cedar and earth. On the palate, I found raspberry with tea leaf and wood tones. It was beautifully balanced with a gorgeous finish full of red fruits and a hint of pepper.
