Shea Wine Cellars Estate Pinot Noir 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a big, complex Pinot. Rich blueberry fruit combines with earthy notes and moderate tannins to provide a wine of structure, balance and great interest. It's a ripe wine with layers of flavor and a long finish.

Founded by Dick and Deirdre Shea in 1996, Shea Wine Cellars is a producer of world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, all made from fruit grown on-site at Shea Vineyard. Shea Wine Cellars was a natural outgrowth of Shea Vineyard which was first planted to wine grapes in 1989. The 200-acre vineyard property lies at the heart of Oregon's Yamhill-Carlton District and supplies fruit to some of Oregon's and California's finest wineries. Shea Wine Cellars is the winemaking effort of grape growers Dick & Deirdre Shea. After ten years of selling all our grape production we decided to create our own expression of Shea Vineyard terroir. We now use 25% of Shea Vineyard's production for our own effort and sell the remaining grapes to some of the finest Pinot noir producers in Oregon and California. At Shea Wine Cellars it is our intention to continue to make small quantities of world class Pinot noir and Chardonnay. Read less

Wine Tasting NotesThis Pinot is made from grapes carefully selected from throughout Shea Vineyard. Aroma of Bing Cherries, purple floral notes and fresh tilled earth. Flavors of black raspberries, minerals and roasted spices. It is already quite accessable and showing layers of flavor normally not revealed until our wines have another full year of bottle age.
