Sharrott Winery is located in Southern New Jersey. The winemaker produces both red and white wines, utilizing a wide selection of varietals.
The 2009 Sharrott Trio was a red blend, composed of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 20% Merlot.
This was my first sampling of a wine from Sharrott. It came is slightly above my expectations.
Jennifer M. has a wonderful blog about wine, food, and New Jersey, called Down-Home South Jersey.
She inquired if I had sampled any wines from New Jersey vineyards. I had not. Being NJ Vinoman, I felt obliged to do so.
My first try was the 2006 Bellview Merlot. I have also procured two bottles from Sharrot Winery (also NJ-based), which I plan to assess very shortly.
As for the Bellview Merlot, while it was not my favorite, I would not classify it as a bad wine.
