New York Cork Report

  • By Lenn Thompson
    1/1/2009, (See more on New York Cork Report...) 3 out of 5 stars

    (Shinn Estate Vineyards Merlot Estate) 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.
