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

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
This rich, supple red layers its dark berry, black cherry... -HS
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.
