The nose of the 2018 Shea Pinot Noir is bucolic, showing tobacco leaf, a hit of citrus, and a deep, gravelly element. The flavor is lush and powerful, stemming from a pronounced core of cherry and earth. It evokes a blissful stroll through the quiet countryside of the northern Willamette Valley, with its many orchards, dusty roads, and patchwork of vineyards. While inviting now, the wine possesses the acid and additional structure for extensive aging.

Often described as one of Oregon’s original grand cru properties, Shea Vineyard is rooted in the distinctive marine sedimentary soils of the Yamhill-Carlton appellation. Here, fruit takes on added complexity, setting the table for Pinot Noir with plentiful length, structure, and intrigue. Rustic by nature, this wine shows dusty, leathery aromatics backed by meaty, savory overtones. Red licorice and cherry tiptoe across a taut but expansive flavor arc, elongated still by notes of baking chocolate and soft, cacao-like tannins. Aged for 11 months in French oak, the 2017 Shea presents a lasting finish, offering an elegant fadeout from a memorable wine.

91 points, Wine Advocate

Round and generous in profile, the 2016 Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir offers layers of mouth-enveloping ripe fruit flavors. On the nose touches of violet and lavender pair with bright hints of mulberry and berry bramble. Juicy blue fruit notes of mulberry, blueberry, and black raspberry lead into secondary flavors of Oolong tea leaf, fresh forest floor, and a touch of minerality imparted from the marine sedimentary soils found on this growing site. An opulent mouthfeel leads into a finish highlighted by a pleasant acidity and velvety tannin profile.
