Shea Wine Cellars Pinot Noir Yamhill-Carlton Estate Shea Vineyard 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): The 2009 Pinot Noir Estate contains some of each of the vineyard blocks in the blend. Given the size of the vineyard and the multiple exposures, there is plenty to choose from in composing the final blend. It is a relatively forward offering with notes of cedar, rose petal, spice box, black cherry, and black raspberry informing the nose of a smooth-textured, savory, elegant wine meant to be enjoyed over the next 6-7 years.

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

Bright acidity and notes of juicy bing cherry dominates. Tannins are fine and well integrated; this is an elegant, easy sipper.

Bought a bottle at Jakes Rest. in Portland after trying a 3 wine Pinot sampler. Best by far. Full bodied Pinot, rich, great Pinot. Only $56 at the restaurant! Too bad I can't find it near me I'd buy a case.
