Beautiful floral notes drew you in to this wine. This wine treats you to chewy, red fruit highlighted by cherry on the palate. This is the most focused, fruit driven wine in our lineup. It's a very special wine and we expect
it to age gracefully.
"Bright ruby-red. Highly perfumed aromas of raspberry, cherry and potpourri, with cola, vanilla and star anise accents. Juicy and expansive, with intense red berry flavors braced by lively acidity. A darker cherry pit note adds depth to the long, vibrant, fruit-dominated finish. As appealing as this wine is now I suspect that a few years of bottle age will bring greater complexity."

"From a block of Dijon clone 777, the Shea 2010 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard Block 33 displays quite evident, if relatively fine-grained tannin, along with ample blueberry and elderberry fruit. Hints of floral perfume add allure, but I just don’t find the sense of mid-palate self-sufficiency; the charm; or the dynamic personality here of the best Pinots in the present collection. (Am I simply prejudiced by accumulated perceptions of clone 777? Naturally I don’t think so ;-) Persistent sweet berry fruit and smoky, toasty oak nuances comprise a, to be sure, lingering finish."
