Wine Advocate's wine of the vintage
2007 (94 pts) and 2008 (96 pts) - 2009 is Next

The Star of Shea's Lineup
Shea Wine Cellars Homer Pinot noir 09

$71.95 in any 12 bottle order
$79.95 retail

Saturated dark fruits, powerful and plush, the 09 Homer is a show-stopper. Opening the bottle is like unrolling a mile-long satin carpet through a field of juicy black plums, currants, berries and violets. Broad and ripe, this will undoubtedly be a candidate for wine of the vintage among the critics and as usual, will be sold out long before the reviews are in. Act now. - Marcus

Big & Intense
Shea Wine Cellars Block 5 Pinot noir 09

$48.99 in any 12 bottle order
$54.43 retail

A big wine that holds its focus, Shea's Block 5 09 leaps out of the glass with ripe blueberry, cherry and currant, adding accents of rose petals and dried herbs on the finish. Full-bodied and rich, this aims to please. - Marcus

We just returned from a "field trip" yesterday to Evening Land where we tasted the brand new 2009's with Mark Tarlov and his super talented crew. They are fantastic.

We'll have full tasting notes, pictures, new info, etc. early next week.

Wine Spectator's lone 96 point rating
went to 08 La Source Pinot noir

Evening Land Vineyards
La Source Pinot noir 09

$53.95 in any 12 bottle order
$59.94 retail

It's a huge feat to make a worthy successor to a 96-point wine. Evening Land has done it with a La Source that is attractive - even seductive, while fresh, structured, and balanced. And if the critics don't pay attention, phooey!
