Wine EnthusiastThe 200-acre Shea vineyard provides fruit to many of Oregon's best winemakers. Here is the estate's own brand, offering up a fragrant, appealing blend from various blocks. Floral highlights, dusty spices, a whiff of cocoa and a streak of nut butter all come into focus around pretty purple fruits. The finish is silky, long and lovely.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir has a very generous bouquet with pure red cherries and wild strawberries, nicely defined and sensual. After a couple of minutes, there are rose petals and potpourri aromas lending complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, well balanced with a pleasant edgy finish with tart red cherries lingering on the aftertaste. Drink over the next 5-8 years.
