As always, Shea has selected the best barrels in the cellar to create Homer. This Homer is a blend of 56% Wädenswil and 44% Dijon 777. Dark, opulent and ripe, this wine offers aromas of spice that hint at the velvety blackberry, plum and black cherry flavors that explode on the pallet. It all ends in a long, long finish.
"There are no such issues regarding the 2009 Pinot Noir Homer, a selection of the best barrels in the cellar. Dense, layered, and plush on the palate, it retains a sense of elegance along with plenty of richness as it sits in the glass. Unlike the 2008 Shea offerings which continue to demand cellaring, these are forward, friendly wines to drink while waiting for the 2008s to strut their stuff.
The Wine Advocate
"Ripe and fleshy, brimming with cocoa-tinged blackberry, cherry and spice flavors, coming together seamlessly on the long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2019. 343 cases made."
Really enjoying it, although we like Block 5 almost as much.
