"There’s robust, dark-fruit focus here with cherries and blackberries, as well as spiced-chocolate notes. The palate has a very succulent and juicy feel with bright, fresh tannins, delivering a fresh, lively and very velvety finish. Drink or hold."

"Deep magenta. Spice-laced red and dark berry, cherry cola and floral pastille scents take on a savory herb quality with air. Shows very good depth and breadth on the palate, which offers appealingly sweet red and blue fruit preserve, mocha and black tea flavors and a hint of allspice. Gains energy with air and repeats the floral note on a long, gently tannic finish that leaves a bitter cherry note behind. -- Josh Raynolds"

The Wine
Twelve barrels from Block 7, all Wdenswil clone, were hand-picked to create this wine. The long, warm growing season brought out the best in Wdenswil. Bright floral aromas dominate the nose while spicy notes of blackberry bramble and plum excite the palate. Prominent tannins add to the wines complexity and interest.

The Estate
Shea Vineyard is owned by Dick Shea. It is a 200 acre vineyard in Yamhill County of the Willamette Valley in Oregon. Shea sells grapes to some of Oregons best wineries, and the vineyard has a reputation for producing some of the best pinot noirs in the world, from such winemakers as Ken Wright and Mike Etzel of Beaux Freres.

Wine Enthusiast October 2002 says: Like Pisoni, Oregon grower Dick Shea has also started to bottle his own wine after his fruit gained notoriety. Shea planted the original 100-acre vineyard in 1988 and 1989 on its own roots, but has been systematically replanting with grafted vines over the past few years in response to phylloxera. And despite the hype over Dijon clones, Shea is sticking largely with Widenswil. I like what it does in the Willakenzie soils that we have, he says.

Dick Shea grew grapes for more than ten years on a 200-acre estate in Yamhill County, supplying some of the best winemakers with fruit, including Ken Wright Cellars, Beaux Freres, Patricia Green Cellars, Westrey Wine Company, Panther Creek Cellars, Raptor Ridge and St. Innocent. About 140 acres produce grapes, although 50 acres are young vines.

In 1996, Shea decided to start his own winery, and more than a decade later, Drew Voit is now making the wine to much acclaim. Voit was consulting with Domaine Serene before working at Shea. Now he has multiple clones (Pommard, Dijon and Widenswil) and multiple vineyard sites to work with. Dick Sheas vineyard is really two separated vineyards, and they have most clones planted. They use different blocks to blend into their main wine, the Estate Pinot, and then they have single block wines as well.

Voits hard work, experience and skill all but guarantee many great vintages to come from Shea.
