Winemaker Notes

This release is a distinctive blend of select barrels from the East Hill of Shea Vineyard. It shows an amazingly complex aromatic profile, ranging from sandalwood and cedar to cardamom and clove. On the palate these spicy notes meld with ripe red berry and plum flavors and a fine-grained tannin structure.

Critical Acclaim

PR 97

Medium-deep ruby color; deep, complex cherry and herbal aromas; rich, complex and deep cherry flavors with plum and lots of herbal and earthy notes; silky texture and a touch of oak for seasoning; great structure and balance; long finish. This is an amazing Pinot.

The Wine Advocate

The 2007 Pinot Noir East Hill is more deeply colored, has greater density and more structure than the Estate cuvee. Fragrant aromas of balsam wood, violets, mineral, and assorted black fruits lead to a medium to full-bodied wine with outstanding depth and concentration. It will benefit from 3-4 years of cellaring (unusually long for this vintage) and drink well from 2012 to 2022.

Dick Shea has 22 clients for the fruit he grows at his large Yamhill-Carlton estate, most of whom vineyard designate the resulting wine. More often than not, it is the best wine in their respective portfolios.
