Shea Wine Cellars Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Estate Shea Vineyard 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Sourced from throughout Shea Vineyard this is classic Oregon and more specifically classic Yamhill-Carlton AVA Pinot noir. It displays violet aromas, red fruit on the palate and a spicy long finish. The Estate is big but not overpowering. The tannins are smooth, the acidity bright and the wine structured and balanced. Aged in 47% new French oak. Alcohol 13.2%. Not yet reviewed; 2009 vintage rated 94 points by Wine Spectator: Supple, rich and complex, layering its dark berry, black cherry, pink grapefruit and exotic spice flavors on a velvety frame. The finish lingers effortlessly. Drink now through 2019.

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

Vintage: 2008 07/06/2011

Bright and jazzy, delivering its cherry and raspberry fruit with a swipe of licorice and pepper, lingering nicely on the lively finish. Drink now through 2016. Winemaker Notes - This release is beautifully balanced wine that shows the full complexity of Shea Vineyard. Aromas of ripe red cherry, black raspberry, hibiscus tea and exotic spices lead to concentrated red and black fruit and elegant tannins on the palate. The finish is long and complex. This elegant Pinot will be a wonderful accompaniment to a fine dining experience.
