Since 2003 we have worked with the Shea family and their impressive 140-acre vineyard property in the middle of the sandy Yamhill-Carlton AVA. Bergström Wines has historically purchased fruit from six different clonal blocks, totaling 16 acres.
The 2017 Bergström Wines Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir is a gorgeous light cranberry color. It has effusive aromas of gingerbread, Chinese five spice, curry, and garam masala with cedar and sandalwood-like incense. This Pinot Noir is also intensely perfumed in the mouth, and has great energy, fruit sweetness, and juicy acidity with fine, elegant ripe tannins. Structured but succulent and fruit forward, this is a very good vintage for the Shea Vineyard, and this wine will drink fantastic young, as well as with 3-8 years of bottle age.
