91 Points - 2018 Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir

Wine Enthusiast Magazine awarded our 2018 Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir a 91 point score:

"This stellar vineyard shines in this wine, offering firm, well-defined tones of purple and black fruit. It's polished to an almost-velvety smoothness, and the lush fruit is coated with darker flavors of coffee and chocolate" - Paul Gregutt

2016 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir - 90 points from Vinous

Another great review for our 2016 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir:

"Bright red. Displays ripe cherry and black raspberry aromas, along with hints of savory herbs, licorice and lavender. Broad and fleshy in the mouth, showing good depth to its dark berry and bitter cherry flavors, which pick up a spicy quality on the back half. Clings nicely on the gently sweet finish, which features dusty tannins and repeating spiciness." - Josh Raynolds, June 2019

OUR PINOT GRIS WINS GOLD!

Our 2016 Willamette Valley Pinot Gris has been honored with a Gold Medal at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition!

The largest competition of American wines in the world names best American wines of 2018 After receiving 6,960 entries from 35 states across the country, the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition (SFCWC) has once again successfully narrowed thousands of wines down to an exclusive few.

A complete listing of the 2018 results, sortable by price point and category, can be found at winejudging.com. In the second week of January, 67 skilled judges from a variety of fields including trade, education, media, retail and hospitality traveled to the Cloverdale Citrus Fairgrounds in Sonoma County to determine the best wines in the USA. Utilizing an extensive process that divides the varietals into several categories and subcategories, the event gave the panels the chance to rate entries as Bronze, Silver, Gold or “Double Gold” (equivalent to a unanimous rating by all panel members).
