Beautiful aromatic nose. Dark fruit, hints of spice and dark chocolate. Palate lacked the depth of the nose. Thin, simple and mineral. Touch of fruit but would have liked more. Decent bottle but left something to be desired.
Clear, medium ruby color. Pronounced aromas of blackberry, plum, herbs, dust and cocoa jump from the glass. The palate is quite fruit forward and has a lighter body than the nose would lead you to believe, with well balanced tannins and acidity and pretty good length. Drinking very well now, but could probably age well for a few more years
Clean, medium+ ruby with purple rim. Medium-intentity aromas of raspberry, cocoa, dry earth. Dry wine with low intensity on the pallette, light body, light tannin, low alcohol, quick finish with low+ acid. Good wine, ready to drink now. I'd serve this as a sipping wine alone.

(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.
