Oregon's Grand Cru
SHIPPING NOW

Only the top 25% of a season's yield goes into Shea's "Estate" Pinot Noir.

The balance?

The rest is sold to notable wineries such as Siduri, Penner-Ash, and Ken Wright - to name just a few.

As a former Wine Spectator Top 100 (#7 to be precise), this benchmark Pinot Noir continues to impress the most discerning Pinot Noir aficionados.

Regardless of the press, Shea is among the best of the domestic Pinot Noir producers and Shea Vineyard is often called the "Grand Cru" of the region.

The vineyard is known for its pure and generous fruit. True to form, the 2014 Shea Estate Pinot is explosive on the nose revealing rose petal and strawberry notes mingled with cherry and chocolate on the long and vivid finish. Elegant flavors of dark red cherries and spice warm the palate.

The Shea signature comes alive in the 2014: moderately rich fruit with fine grain tannins, a satiny mouth feel and nice acidity, which give the wine terrific lift.

Enjoy this Willamette Valley classic now and over the next 7 years.

$39.95 per bottle / $479.40 per case
