Wine Review: This dark red colored wine from the Shea Vineyard in Oregon opens with a black raspberry and smoky oak bouquet with a hint of graphite. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a stony mineral and stewed black plum blend with notes of oak and black raspberry. I also detected hints of cocoa and red licorice. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. I would pair this very good Pinot with beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our 2019 Shea is a blend of two different Shea Vineyard blocks. Block 18 is Dijon 777 clone and represents the backbone of the wine, while Block 16 adds some Pommard fruit to the mix. Both are planted in the region's shallow marine sediment soils, producing a silky, highly complex Pinot Noir with an incredibly long finish.
