Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir: 93 Points in Wine Enthusiast

Our 2017 Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir was awarded an excellent 93 points and selected as an Editors' Choice by Wine Enthusiast Magazine!

"This wine is loaded with raspberries, blackberries, cherries and preserved lemons, dotted with baking spice and finished with a touch of chocolate-covered orange peel.

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

2016 Zenith Vineyard Pinot Noir - 92 points from Vinous

Josh Raynolds gave our 2016 Zenith Vineyard Pinot Noir a great review of 92 points:

"Shimmering ruby-red. Expansive aromas of black raspberry, cherry cola, baking spices and candied rose. Deep-pitched dark berry and cherry flavors are complemented and enlivened by sexy floral pastille and spicecake notes that build with aeration. Velvety, slow-building tannins lend shape to the very long, sweet finish, which leaves notes of star anise and cola behind." - Josh Raynolds, June 2019

2016 Xander Taryn Vineyard Pinot Noir - 92 points from Vinous

Josh Raynolds gave our 2016 Xander Taryn Vineyard Pinot Noir a great review of 92 points:

"Vivid red. Smoke-accented black raspberry, cherry and candied rose scents are complemented by hints of licorice and mocha. Silky, sweet and broad on the palate; juicy red fruit, spicecake and savory herb flavors pick up a hint of bitter chocolate on the back half. Fine-grained tannins add shape to a chewy, persistent finish that leaves behind sappy cherry liqueur and baking spice notes." - Josh Raynolds, June 2019

2016 Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir - 93 points from Vinous

Josh Raynolds gave our 2016 Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir a fantastic review of 93 points:

"Brilliant red. A highly aromatic bouquet displays ripe red and blue fruit, star anise and smoky Indian spices, along with a building mineral overtone. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering concentrated, mineral-laced black raspberry, cherry liqueur, rose pastille and spicecake flavors that deepen steadily with air. Delivers an impressive blend of power and delicacy and finishes with mounting tannins and strong, minerally persistence." - Josh Raynolds, June 2019
