    Bright and jazzy, delivering its cherry and raspberry fruit with a swipe of licorice and pepper, lingering nicely on the lively finish.

    The 2008 Pinot Noir Estate contains fruit from all of the vineyard blocks and clones on the property. Dark ruby red, it displays an inviting bouquet of smoke, spice box, rose petal, incense, black cherry, and black raspberry. This leads to an intense, layered, spicy wine with enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years, excellent volume, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish.

    This bottle was unimpressive. Just fruity and not very interseting to me. Left me wanting more.

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.
