Merkin Vineyards Shinola Red Blend

Merkin Vineyards Shinola Red Blend

$24.36

As the Arizona wine industry matures it seems undeniable that it is Mediterranean red grapes that are coming to the fore.  Some of the Arizona Sangiovese based wines are showing very well with solid promise in the future.  It is with this quality in mind that we sourced the Merkin Vineyards Shinola Red.  Hand picked grapes from the high altitude (4300 ft) Buhl Memorial Vineyard, open top bin macerated and aged for 11 months in new and neutral French Oak Barriques.  Rich flavors of cocoa, black tea, savory herbal spices with a classic Sangiovese tart cherry finish.  We like this wine!

95% Sangiovese / 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
