Soft, fresh and bright. Cinnamon and spiced capture the nose-leading to a youthful and mineral mouthfeel. Slight oak and racy tannins make for a good finish. Could use some bottle age.

2008 Bella Vida vineyard- Tasty red fruit. Red plum, paprika, and bacon on the nose. Fruit on the palate juuust starting to go into dried or baked tones. Its nice but it kinda ceels like an awkward adolescent phase for the wine.

Darker fruited and with more spice and tannin structure than the Estate. A very long and true Shea.

Holy smokes. This is gorg. Has a youthful bite that will soften nicely. 2013 is showing a lot of promise IMHO.

Cherry, light berry, and coffee on the noise. Medium bodied but packs a juicy punch. #OregonPinot.

Extremely herbal #wine, powerfully dark red fruit with grippy tannins. Will age, I'd start looking at these in 17.

Bright red current jelly with mace on the nose (plus a little stewed tomatoes). Light texture and structure, nice minerality and persistent finish. Wish I'd opened it last year. Lovely with our veal chops, purple new potatoes from our garden and asparagus. Lovely combo!
