Wine Enthusiast, Paul Gregutt
"This California-based brand sources Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from a number of prestigious West Coast growers. The Shea Vineyard designate is their sole Oregon project. It's a powerful wine, bursting with black cherry fruit, accented with cola, graphite and sweet spices. There's a whiff of sea salt as well, and such details keep flowing even as the wine winds down."

Shea Vineyard
Well draining volcanic and seabed soils.

Light ruby in the glass, this wine opens with a perfumed nose of raspberry coulis, ripe cherry and delicate aromas of baking spice and forest floor. This Pinot Noir is light in body with layered flavors of strawberry, tart cherry, minerality, nutmeg and white peppercorn.

  • Raspberry Coulis
  • Baking Spice
  • Minerality
  • White Peppercorn

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 2017 growing season began with significant rainfall, replenishing soils and reservoirs. A summer of gradual warmth indicated a textbook growing season until unpredictable spells of extreme heat throughout September created challenges for many vineyards. This heightened the rate of ripening and flavor development in the grapes. Cooling marine air arrived just in time to bring our vineyards to ideal harvesting conditions resulting in concentrated, rich, and dense wines.
