(made from a blend of Wadensil and Pommard clones): Bright ruby-red. Black raspberry, cherry-cola, star anise and violet on the perfumed nose. Pliant, sappy dark fruit flavors are lifted by juicy acidity and gain spiciness with air. Shows very good energy and focus on the finish, which leaves spicecake and dark berry skin notes behind.

About This Producer


The Shea Vineyard, established in 1996 by Dick and Deirdre Shea, encompasses over 30 distinct blocks of primarily Pinot Noir with limited planting of Chardonnay. Ninety percent of the fruit is sold to producers in California and Oregon, but a small amount is kept to produce about 2400 total cases under the Shea label. Shea Vineyard is recognized as one of the top sites in America for Pinot Noir, and Shea's own bottling receive consistently high scores. Additionally, their sustainable stewardship of the vineyard has been recognized at the highest level over the last three years.
