Beaux Freres Belles Soeurs Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir 2000
Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley, Oregon
Our finest Shea Vineyard offering to date. It displays a healthy saturated dark ruby color with purple nuances. Shea tends to be a seductive, open-knit effort, even in a more tannic year such as 2000. Copious sweet, creamy, black cherry and berry fruit intermixed with toasty wood emerge from the wine's aromas. Medium to full-bodied and fleshy, with more structure than previous vintages, the 2000 offers the vineyard's hallmark black fruit and a silky, lusty, hedonistic personality. It should drink well young, and evolve nicely for a decade.
