This wine is from a 1990 planting of Pommard Clone vines in Shea Vineyard’s West Hill area. This wine is all about bright, focused, dark fruit. This Pinot is intense and has a beautiful purity of flavor. Dark garnet color. Nose of black cherries, ripe plums and fragrant spices. Palate of wild berries and fleshy tannins.
Shea Vineyards Pinot Noir Block 23
Shea Wine Cellars is the winemaking effort of grape growers Dick & Deirdre Shea. After ten years of selling all their grapes in production they decided to create our own expression of Shea Vineyard terroir. They now use 25% of Shea Vineyard’s production for their own effort and sell the remaining grapes to some of the finest Pinot noir producers in Oregon and California. At Shea Wine Cellars it is their intention to continue to make small quantities of world class Pinot noir and Chardonnay.
