Made from Dijon clone 777, Block 5 is very expressive aromatically in the plum, raspberry, blueberry and violet spectrum. The palate is mouth-coating with impressive length and concentration. Tannins are fine-grained and silky.
Shea Vineyards Pinot Noir Block 5
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.
