Light to moderate purple. Prune, smoke and raspberry notes in nose. Cherry-berry with a touch of citrus, astringency on finish. Good acidity. Needs more time.

Clear dense purple red. Barrel smoke, raspberry and leather notes in nose. Clove, blueberry, raspberry, crisp finish, moderate tannic astringency on front of tongue. Citric aftertaste. Age longer?

Dense purple. Leather, barrel wood and blackberry notes in nose. Blueberry flavor with peppery seed tannin finish. Soft mouthfeel, moderate astringent finish. Citrus-berry aftertaste. Highly drinkable but could age a few years more.

Bright red fruits and rhubarb, great balance of power and finesse

The 2004 Shea 'Homer' Willamette Pinot Noir is well within its drinking window, perhaps in the waning daylight of its splendor. Beautifully complex aromas of forest floor, damp leaves, truffles, mushroom, black cherries, and spice. On the palate, its medium-bodied with gorgeous concentration of fruit, and an energetic jolt of nervy acidity, making for a lovely Pinot that is intense without being weighty. Notes of cocoa powder, raspberry reduction and leather lead to a lengthy finish.

Showed fairly well but not as nuanced as I had hoped or experienced with other vintages.

Tasting Group. Group 5th, my 4th. Cherries, stone fruit. Loads of SO2. Quite astringent.
