Editors Choice - "This release features grapes from one of Oregon"s best sites"the Shea Vineyard, located in the Yamhill Carlton AVA. It's jam-packed with black cherry and cassis fruit, nuanced by firm streaks of tobacco, espresso and sweet spice. Its density and balance are superb."

Shea Vineyard
Well draining volcanic and seabed soils.

Deep rose blush in color, the Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir has beautiful aromas: barrel spice, delicate strawberry, rosewater, forest floor, and earthy mushroom spill from the glass. On the palate there is cinnamon and minerality. The tension and structure create a rich and creamy texture finishing with hints of anise.

Shea vineyard's sedimentary soils and unique aspect produce wines of excellent concentration and depth in one of the Pacific Coast's most premier and extreme growing regions.

Vintage NotesThe 2015 harvest was a spectacular vintage for Oregon. Early spring was unusually warm, and the warm weather continued through the entire growing season. This resulted in a very healthy crop, with higher than average yields. The season cooled towards harvest, allowing slow and steady ripening. The growing conditions from bud break through harvest paved the way for virtually pristine fruit.
