This wine is full of red and black fruit, dark flowers, and has lovely weight and length. It has the darkest components of all the wines produced from Shea Vineyard and has the structure to age. It reminds me a bit of the wines of Morey St.-Denis - lovely layered fruit and good concentration. It is a steal for its price.
The aroma of dark flowers and black raspberries is the first thing that strikes you as you smell our Shea. Next comes sweet red and black fruit flavors with hints of citrus, mint, red roses and violets. Fresh, bright fruit with great clarity, nice acidity, balanced smoky oak, and a long layered finish complete the package. It was described as 'sexy' by one writer.
Duck breast, lamb chops, or any course that emphasizes fresh, sweet flavors will bring out its purity and hedonistic qualities. Lovely while young, it will develop even more sweetness and layers over eight years.
Black cherries and violets make up the aromatic profile of the 2002 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard. This exceptional wine envelopes the palate with dense layers of gorgeously sweet black cherries, spices, and cloves. Seductive and sultry yet focused and precise, this medium to full-bodied beauty is big, ample, and decadent while remaining refined and detailed.
