One of Oregon and the Willamette Valley’s most well-known sites, Shea Vineyard has earned its reputation for consistently high quality Pinot noir.
The 2017 Shea opens with aromatics of dusty rose, smoked cherry, and roasted game. A hint of rhubarb transitions to the palate with firm, dry tannins and black tea. Lavender lingers in the background while dried strawberry and coffee ride the lengthy finish of this well-structured wine.
