Winemaker's Notes:

93 points PinotReport: Medium-deep ruby color; deep, ripe red cherry and earthy aromas; rich, deep, earthy red cherry flavors, some tannin and sweet oak notes; good structure and balance; long finish. Deep with great structure, this Pinot needs some time in the glass to open up. (5/31/10)

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

Great balance! You just can't stop enjoying these aromas. The alcohol level/feel also takes a backseat unlike some California Pinot's. Really smooth and fruity on the palate!
