Winemaker Notes

The 2013 Shea nose is dense with wild black cherry, black raspberry, cassis, dark rose, cola, and dark licorice aromas. The mouth is equally huge with dark, concentrated fruits, white pepper, dense floral, and roasted dark sweet spices. Hints of roasted coffee, dark dried fruits and flowers carry into its dark, broad, and surprisingly ripe and supple tannin draped finish that extends and lingers between sensual dark fruit and floral notes for more than a minute.

Wine Enthusiast
Dark, dense and detailed, this outstanding wine seamlessly layers wild berries, cedar, sandalwood and sassafras. It’s smooth and seductive, powerful and polished, with thick, ripe and fulsome tannins. Editors' Choice.
JS 92
James Suckling
Decadent aromas of strawberries, toffee and hints of smoked meat follow through to a medium to full body, soft tannins and a juicy finish. Very fine and soft.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard comes from vines planted between 2002 and 2005 in Block 6 within the vineyard. There is a ferrous tincture on the nose that infuses the red berry fruit, quite fresh vis-a-via St Innocent's other 2013 Pinot Noirs, a touch of gypsum emerging with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with redcurrant and cranberry notes, a fine backbone here with just the right amount of salinity on the structured finish. Give this a year or two in bottle and it should drink well for another decade.

St. Innocent Winery, Oregon
St. Innocent Winery Winery Image
St. Innocent Winery was founded in May 1988 by Mark Vlossak, the current winemaker and president, and eight investors. Ten tons of grapes were crushed the first fall, producing 396 cases of still and 176 cases of sparkling wine. Production increased to our full capacity of 6800 cases in 2004. The winery is located in Salem, Oregon, at the southeast corner of the Eola Hills, in the mid-Willamette valley.

St. Innocent produces small lot, handmade wines: seven single vineyard Pinot noirs and a blended Pinot noir called the Villages Cuvée, two Chardonnay from Dijon clone plantings, two Pinot gris, and a Pinot blanc.

The philosophy behind the winemaking at St Innocent is that the function of wine is to complement and extend the pleasure of a meal. The characteristics of a wine should enhance different food and flavor combinations - this interaction amplifies the pleasure of a meal. To this end, St. Innocent wines tend toward higher acid levels, and more diverse and balanced flavors.

Yamhill-Carlton, characterized by pastoral, rolling hills composed of shallow, quick-draining, ancient marine soil, is ideal for Pinot noir and other cool-climate-loving varieties. It is in the rain shadow of the Coast Range to its west, whose highest point climbs to an altitude of 3,500 feet. Yamhill-Carlton is actually surrounded by mountains on three sides: Chehalem Mountains to the north, the Dundee Hills to the east and the western Coast Range to its west, which, when it lets Pacific air through, serves to cool the region.

Vineyards grow on the ridges surrounding the two small communities of Yamhill and Carlton and cover about 1,200 acres of this 60,000 acre region, which roughly makes a horse-shoe shape on a map.
