now go into Shea's Wadenswil
Shea Wine Cellars
Pinot noir Wadenswil 05
The exceptional Shea Wadenswil
Deep, brooding aromas of violets,
rose petals, and spice-shaded dark fruit, with
hints of white pepper and blackberry flowers
that echo in the finish.
currant, plum and cherry liqueur accents are
supported by exotic barrel spice and hints
of blueberry and plum jams, all of which linger
on the powerful finish. The 2005 Wadenswil
has a long life ahead, with acidity and fine
tannins to suport cellaring or to pair well
with grilled lamb or dry-aged beef.
The finish of the Shea Wadenwil
05 is silky, and although dense and deeply
flavored, its superfine tannins are so well
integrated in this big wine that "balance"
is the word that comes to mind. Hints of milk
chocolate and toasted coffee bean add complexity.
Shea's Wadenswil shows
the characteristics of the Wadenswil clone
- a big, dark, dense character with a blue
fruit core. Shea's Wadenswil
is usually best when cellared for a few years,
and the 2005 is no exception.

Cap Pinot noir 05
Jason Lett's Black Cap
Winery is a tiny production, "Indie" winery
now affiliated with his family's Eyrie
Black Cap is heavenly. Beguiling,
complex aromas of floral perfume, sweet
cherries, and dusky earth notes fill
the glass. You can almost sense the mouthwatering
Marionberry, sweet and tart cherry,
fresh cream, and hints of culinary herbs are framed
by the absolutely silky body. The tannins are seamlessly
integrated, the wine so vibrant and juicy. The bright
acidity lifts the pure, concentrated fruit through
the long finish. Gorgeous
now, the 2005 Black Cap Pinot noir will age beautifully.
A mind-blowing follow up to the 2004.
