Tasting Notes

Rich and complex, black cherry, confectionary strawberry and dusty rose waft up from the glass. An expressive palate follows with juicy black cherry and pomegranate alongside notes of tropical mango and coconut in a slightly gamey, smoky finish.

About Shea Vineyard

Shea Vineyard sits in the heart of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA and is farmed by our friends Dick & Deirdre Shea. This is arguably the most famous vineyard for Oregon Pinot Noir because of the many well-known wineries that make a Single Vineyard Shea wine, including our sister brand Elk Cove Vineyards and neighbors Ken Wright, Bergstrom, Penner-Ash and others. It's worth checking out the Shea Vineyard website to learn more about this unique vineyard. Wines from Shea vineyard are earthy with a black cherry kick

The 2017 Vintage

2017 brought us back to what we consider a classic, cool-climate Oregon vintage, a year when our decades of experience paid off. Wet spring weather led to a more typical growing season compared with the past three vintages, all unusually hot. The summer of 2017 was warm and dry, leading to excellent flavor development in the fruit, but we thinned the crop considerably to ensure concentration and ripeness. Harvest was staggered because of the October rains, which meant long days for our crew during the windows of sun. 2017 wasn’t an easy year to farm, but the fresh, fully developed flavors of the vintage make it worth the hard work.

Wine Enthusiast

"This wine is loaded with raspberries, blackberries, cherries and preserved lemons, dotted with baking spice and finished with a touch of chocolate-covered orange peel. It may sound like dessert, but it's a thoroughly delicious dry-red wine that will add to the enjoyment of any pork, lamb or poultry entrée."

Wine Advocate

"Pale to medium ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard has slowly opening aromas of rose petal, orange peel, charcuterie and black tea leaves with blackberries and red and black cherries. It’s light to medium-bodied with a good core of spicy fruit, a grainy frame and long, fresh finish. 500 cases produced."
