Shinas verdict

Cabernet Sauvignon, "The Verdict" 2015

Shinas Estate

If it weren't for The Judge’s deft hand and old, gnarly vines, the grapes would surely succumb to a fateful ending. The soil and roots allow for this to occurs and still maintain a freshness in the wine. The Verdict is a Cabernet Sauvignon that brings a lot of intensity to the glass, yet bright, high tones. A wine that will please any fan of the ‘new Napa-style’ for sure. This wine is always unfined and unfiltered...just the way we like it! This has a dark plum color with a slight crimson hue. It showcases aromas of ripe blackberries, vanilla and dark chocolate leading into a palate packed with riveting flavors of black cherry, red plums, and ripe strawberries. With a solid-built frame of tannin and crisp acid, the wine manages to find balance with the equitable amount of plush texture.
