WINEMAKER’S NOTES: An Oregon Grand Cru, the Shea vineyard epitomizes Pinot Noir’s amazing ability to present elegance and muscle at the same time.
TASTING NOTES: This vintage hits the palate in what can only be described as multi-dimensional ways, going beyond simply coating and reaching every corners of the senses. The delicate bouquet of geranium is dressed with racy whiffs of cinnamon and baking spices that seamlessly make their way into each sip. The juicy and generous palate is explosive with cherry and plum, both tart and sweet. Perfumes of oolong and chamomile tea linger in the senses and create an exotically floral foreshadow of the richer earthier notes to be revealed as fruit makes way for the deeper characteristics to shine over years in the cellar.
