Scored 91 points by Robert Parker! A classic Shea vineyard Pinot Noir with dark fruit, spicy florals and velvety tannins.
91 Points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
“The 2006 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard is medium dark ruby-colored with an enticing bouquet of pain grille, earth notes, spice box, cherry, cassis and raspberry. Round, ripe and succulent, the wine has excellent depth and enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years. This lengthy effort should be at its best from 2010 to 2018.”
2006 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard
Dick Shea’s highly regarded vineyard sits on sedimentary soil over fractured sandstone in the steeply contoured hills just east of Yamhill. Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir is renowned for its consistent floral aromas, and focused flavors of dark red fruits and spice supported by firm structure and velvety texture.
This rich, concentrated wine exhibits classic Shea Vineyard character. The aromas reveal dark berries with a touch of cassis and rose hip.Â In the mouth dark fruit flavors coat the palate with large, lush tannins. Shades of berries, cocoa and wood spice linger through the silky finish.Â
