Shea Wine Cellars Pinot noir 08

Serious wine collectors, particularly those who follow American Pinot noir, seek out the wines of one of America's top vineyards. Shea Vineyard has been called the "Grand Cru" of Oregon - the Pinots from Shea Vineyard, no matter the winemaker, are among the top-rated Oregon wines of any vintage.

-

Think about the possibility of choosing from the entire Shea Vineyard, all 125 acres of it, to make the very best Pinot noir possible from the site. That's what Dick Shea does to make the wines of Shea Wine Cellars.

Shea Vineyard wines have become a sort of "no-brainer" for those following Oregon Pinots. If there's one bottling from a winery that you can count on, it's often their Shea.

Combine Oregon's top-rated vineyard with Oregon's top rated 2008 vintage. The Shea Pinots have never been more attractive.

Along with the Homer and Estate - Avalon customer favorites, we're offering you the brand new "Block 31." If you are a fan of the previous Pommard and Wadenswil Shea Wine Cellars Pinots, you're going to love the Block 31!

-

Shea Wine Cellars is no longer making the Wadenswil, Pommard, or East Hill Pinot noirs. They have been replaced by several new "block designates" - Pinot noirs made from one of the 17 sections of the Shea Vineyard. More blocks will be released in the fall.

Shea's Newest Pinot

Beautifully bright cherry marries fleshy plum, creating a layered, best-of-both-worlds Shea Pinot. The finish finds an ideal harmony of rich and spicy, with cinnamon and thyme accenting the awesome, creamy-textured Pinot fruit.

-

For fans of the previous Shea Pommard and Wadenswil Pinots (no longer made), Block 31 is a wine you'll love. It's a blend of 70% Pommard and 30% Wadenswil clones and we highly recommend it. - Jean & Marcus

Opulent, luxurious, sensuous. Decadent black fruit, violet essence, and warm spice oozes into your olfactory. The velvety, mesmerizing liqueur of cassis, black cherry and cocoa hangs onto your palate before it delves deeper with a dark, sweet forest note.
The Homer is made from the best barrels in the cellar. It's a balanced blockbuster that, as usual, will be best with at least a couple years of age. - Jean & Marcus

-

Each year, owner Dick Shea selects the best barrels from his favorite grapes to make "Homer." Only a few dozen barrels of 2008 Homer were made- the most collectible and hardest to get Shea wine. Shea Wine Cellars Pinot noir 08

Roses, berries, cherries and violets mingle in an intoxicating perfume. Delightful, sweet black raspberry and black cherry flavors are joined a moment later by incense, smoke, and spice. A succulent, lengthy finish adds to this deeply satisfying Pinot that will evolve and offer years of pleasure. - Jean & Marcus

-

The Shea Estate is a blend from multiple sections of Shea Vineyard, showcasing the diversity of the vineyard.
