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

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

Amazing notes layered..breaks nice on the tongue a great lite pinot with a lower then medium finish at this time. A nice plum flavor that complements the mineral tasting notes.

A bit too bold, very dark and concentrated to pass a Shea vineyard, Oregon Pinot. Very peppery but with a nice complexity and fruit, dominated by orange peel and sour cherry. But again no earth, more CA than Anything.
