2010 Vintage Tasting Notes

#3 SF Chronicle Recommended Oregon Pinots: Scott Shull's basic blend of 11 vineyard sites includes components from locales both famous (Shea) and lesser known. The result is a perfect snapshot of classic Oregon - floral, juicy and fresh, with wild strawberry and a fennel accent. And for that price? Stunning. - the Chronicle

The 2010 Willamette is an elegant and articulate wine. Bright red candied cherry and caramel apple and even a hint of fresh white peach on the nose prepare the senses for a silky entry on the palate followed by the immediate attack of very zippy cherry fruit, mouth-drenching acidity, and hints of cassis. The wine narrows as it finishes with polished, fine-grained tannins. Though narrow, the length is prolonged by a spectrum of flavors that keep going. As it ages in the bottle, brown spice notes of cardamon and cinnamon bark may become more prominent.

2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

2009 Wine Spectator - 92 points - Light, supple and appealing for the mineral notes that harmonize with the cherry and spice flavors, lingering nicely. Drink now through 2018. 1,060 cases. - H.S.

Clear garnet in color, this wine exhibits the aromas and flavors of classic Laurelwood and Yamhill series soil profiles, with a touch of Shea Vineyard earthiness. Fresh plums and blueberries dominate the broad palate, with a long, multi-layered finish. Though still young, this wine is already showing a very food-friendly balance of softness and acidity.
