2013 Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir

Yamhill Carlton AVA

Sold Out
Harvested from 5 different clonal blocks from the East Hill of the Shea Vineyard (Dijon clones 115 and 777 and the pioneering Pommard and Wadenswil clones) our 2013 Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir is a thing of beauty, in fact beauty is the key word when discussing where we are taking this vineyard. For the past several years we have been looking past simple extraction and large scaled wines towards a focus on prettiness. The Shea Vineyard is a thin-soiled vineyard where power and tannins come easy and Shea for many years has been synonymous with large scaled wines. We have chosen to showcase this site’s gorgeous fruit and mineral profile by backing off the extraction and oak influence to let the true terroir shine through.

The 2013 Shea Vineyard is a gorgeous expression of the vineyard in this vintage: a potpourri of dark fruits, blue fruits and loamy earth with a lifted floral perfume reminiscent of roses that adds delicacy and grace. The wine is medium bodied with full ripe fruit flavors that coat the palate with dense silky waves of texture, sweetness and a long mineral and floral finish. Drink now to 2019+
