Shea Wine Cellars Pinot Noir 2010

Member Review by loveandprozac:

This is a nice pinot, though perhaps a bit lacking in the elegance that I've come to expect from Shea fruit. The familiar bright cherry acidity is there, but the tannins are on the muscular side, not quite integrating into the profile enough for the supple elegance that I typically associate with the vineyard. Perhaps a couple years on the rack is in order?

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
