Shea Vineyard, Pinot Noir

Merchant's Pick

Shea Vineyard, Pinot Noir
Oregon's Grand Cru Vineyard
April 03, 2017
LIMITED QUANTITIES

As a former Wine Spectator Top 100 (#7 to be precise), this benchmark Pinot Noir continues to amaze vintage after vintage despite its short supply.
    With the best 25% of the Estate's Pinot going into its namesake bottling, the rest is snatched up by Ken Wright, Bergstrom, Penner-Ash and Siduri, all of whom are eager to and benefit from putting the "Shea Vineyard" designation on their labels.
    Regardless of the press, Shea is among the best of the domestic Pinot Noir producers and may very well be the "Grand Cru" of the region. Shea Wine Cellars is one of the most prestigious Oregon producers placing it squarely among the elite terroirs both domestic and abroad.
    Pure and generous, the wine 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. Moderately rich, with fine grain tannins, a satiny mouth feel and nice acidity give the wine terrific lift.
    From an amazing 2013 vintage, this wine is in short supply...so don't wait until it is too late! Enjoy now and over the next 7 years.

Summary

Pure and generous, the wine 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. Enjoy now and over the next 7 years.
