One of Oregon and the Willamette Valley’s most well-known sites, Shea Vineyard has earned its reputation for consistently high quality Pinot noir.
On the nose this wine shows layers of red plums, rhubarb, strawberry and currants. Herbal touches of rose hips, lavender and dried flowers come through with spice elements of anise, allspice and Earl Grey tea. Bright and fresh on entry, the finish is long and juicy with complex layers.
