Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard comes from one the Willamette Valley's most renowned terroirs. Deeper colored than its predecessors, it has a plummy, dark-fruited bouquet, with notes of violets and damp earth. Round and ripe, it offers up spicy black cherry and black raspberry flavors leading to a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. Give it two to three years to evolve and drink it from 2011 through 2020."
94 Points

"Ripe, round and generous with its cherry and raspberry fruit, which sails smoothly over a bed of fine-grained tannins. The flavors persist impressively, picking up hints of spice and mineral notes on the finish."
92 Points

"Bright red color. Fresh strawberry and raspberry on the nose. Deeper cola and rooty sassafras qualities emerge with aeration and carry onto the palate. Bitter cherry and raspberry preserve flavors offer very good depth and juicy palate coverage. Finishes tangy, clean and long, with the bitter cherry element carrying through. 'I prefer Shea fruit in the cooler vintages like 2005,' Bergstrom said, as this normally early-ripening site benefits from steady maturation of skin and seed tannins. According to Bergstrom, there are 85 barrels of this wine, and the grapes come from five clonal blocks, 'which means that I can really craft a blend.'"
