One of the best Merlots I've enjoyed in a long time ... and it's from Long Island! It's actually a blend - 81% merlot and 19& Cabernet Franc. Lush taste with gentle tannins. Flavors of red plum fruit with aromas of chocolate, blackberry, raspberry that ended with hints of herbs, mocha, earth and vanilla. I decanted the bottle, which I think enhanced its immediate enjoyment.

(Shinn Estate Vineyards Merlot Estate) 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.
