Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir

2013 vintage. Tulips, ripe cherries in tree, raspberry essence. Holly and spearmint apparently had a winter tryst under a spray of delicate cranberry blossom. Pickled strawberry and dry pinecone emerge from a smoky cave, there is a citrus whiff, from a nighttime grove ringed by oregano. Light mouthfeel with electric potential. Subtleties abound. Cranberry meets rolled, red apple skin, chewed leather, applewood chips, bitter cherry, dried rose petals and smoky, red saffron. #pinotnoir #oregonpinotnoir #sheavineyards #oregon #pinotparadise #noir #noirs #boedecker #pn #pinotweknow — a year ago

Cuvée des Grands Côtés Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes Coteaux Champenois Pinot Noir 2011

I don't usually attach a number to wines. But this was a perfect wine. Unbelievable balance between hedonistic richness and gorgeous minerality and structure. The best bottle of wine I've opened in a LONG time. #eglyouriet #ambonnay #pinotparadise #grandcru #rarecreature — 4 years ago

Had the 2007 a year or so ago and I can still taste it. Incredible.

Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir

Ruby-red translucence with little to no rim variation. Red roses, prime rib with cedar smoke, pure, black cherry juice, dried rosemary, sliced red plum, frozen raspberries and a touch of blood orange make this an aromatic cousin of Nebbiolo, in a way. Medium, silly mouthfeel that genuinely delivers a sumptuous cranberry in warm raspberry juice stirred coldly into warm black and tart cherry to acheive a balance of temperature fruitwise. There is white pepper, a dash of graphite, dry, earthen dustiness, black olive and lime leaf. The whole burgeons into an endless concerto of complex herbs and metal-shop shavings awash in shining red fruits and flowers. Concentrated, and beautiful, but only the parts it was born with, and maybe a stave or two. #pinotparadise #pn #pinotnoir #oregonpride #oregonwines #boedecker #yamhillcarlton #americanpinot #singlevineyard #sheavineyards #Shea — 2 years ago

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2008

Great structure for Pinot! Yesterday this was live spruce, pomegranate, strawberry-rhubarb, dried raspberry and cinnamon fragranced, today it is cranberry bread, dried strawberry, plum blossoms. Yesterday, tart cherry, cinnamon and cherrywood with an interesting bitter orange. Twenty eight plus hours later it is cran-lemon, lead-dusted raspberry, peppery plum, violets and St Johns wort. Turnabout is fair play. Glad this had the legs to kick it! #willamette #willamettewine #oregonpinotcamp #oregonwines #brynmawr #pinotparadise — 3 years ago
