Winemaker Notes

Strikingly rich, sweet black cherry/red berry aromas dominate the 2014 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard’s nose. Red rose, violet and chocolate covered cherries layer in, creating a pool of loveliness. This carries through to the mouth with loads of sweet berry, cherry, floral and sweet spice flavors. Swallowing does little to reduce the riot of flavors; rather, it reveals the dimensions of dried floral, wild berry, nutmeg, cinnamon and sweet herbal notes that lie await after the generous first impressions fades. Ripe sweet tannins balanced by fresh acidity create a backbone of structure for this abundant wine to age up to 15 years.

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
Shea is one of the Willamette Valley's most revered sites, and an all-star list of wineries compete for the fruit. Here the bright flavors of ripe raspberries are elevated with tangy acids, putting a tight frame of citrus around the core. A whiff of sea breeze comes up as well, enticing the taster to explore a bit more deeply. Already irresistible, this evocative wine will cellar well for at least a decade. Drink now through 2028.
Cellar Selection.

James Suckling
Aromas of ripe-berry, plum and cherry character. Medium to full body, velvety tannins and a rich and flavorful finish. A wine that balance richness with freshness. Beautiful now. Why wait?
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Bright and snappy, with raspberry, cherry and smoky, minerally notes coming together with impressive focus, broadening out into a long and generous finish. Has presence and depth. Best from 2017 through 2024.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard has an attractive bouquet with lively aromas of wild strawberry, blackberry, iris and a subtle menthol notes that skulk in through aeration in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity, gentle at first, but quite intense towards the finish with touches of blood orange, spice and sous-bois infusing the red fruit. This is very fine.

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 Wine

Willamette Valley

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.
