2007 Shinn Estate Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon North Fork (750ml)

SKU: 982651-0119-167
"88 out of 100 - The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon achieved – both in its roasted richness and 15.5% alcohol – a ripeness that not only Page and Shinn held to be impossible on Long Island but their neighbors did too! Yet, for all that, the great grape god Cabernet Sauvignon still takes a back seat here qualitatively to Merlot. Toasted almond, chocolate syrup, cassis, and licorice are prominent, and the texture is rich without sacrificing freshness. Yet, while the wine’s 50% new wood is typical for this estate, here it shows in a detached way, and there is simply less charm or length than in the corresponding Merlot or Cabernet Franc. This will no doubt keep for half a dozen or more years but I would be skeptical about how positively it evolves, in particular whether its alcohol catches up with it via heat or drying." - David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate
