Dark fruit with a little smoke as well. Fruit forward at first but became more balanced after a few hours of air time.

5/3/2015 - Al Doughty Likes this wine: 92 points

Clean and herbal on the nose with wonderfully restrained oak that provides an excellent flinty structure and a subtle touch of toffee vanilla in the mid-palate. Tropical and orchard fruit weave in and out and linger on the long clean finish. Very good value made in a modern yet very Burgundian style. Is at it's richest on day two.

Quite powerful aromas of cassis, white pepper, rose petal and fresh herbs show some noticeable alcohol along with a slight hint of charcoal. The ripe blackcurrant and blackberry fruit on the front is fairly quickly balanced with a slightly green edge which gives way to more chalky notes and some bitter chocolate characteristics. There is a nice balance of ripe yet pure and focused fruit that is very cleansing, but also exhibits some heft due to the chalky texture. Should improve over the next 3 or 4 years.

A wine that captures the potential quality of the Shea Vineyard, that has some of the oldest Pinot Noir vines in Washington. Has a Burgundian structure from the higher acid and drying tannin. Yet marries that structure to the lovely black fruit side of Pinot Noir - black cherry, black plum, and blackberry. Not only balances fruit, acid, and tannin, but at a high level of concentration.

2006 Shea Wine Cellars Pinot Noir Homer Shea Vineyard

Willamette Valley more

4/18/2015 - Domer99 Likes this wine: NR

This was a big pinot. Everything about it was big, from the thick, heavy bottle, to the deep nose to the tannins and strong flavor. I thought it was well integrated and was working perfectly this evening. Didn't think it had gone over the edge yet, but was working so well that there is no reason to wait to open either. A really great bottle of pinot.

2004 Shea Wine Cellars Pinot Noir East Hill Shea Vineyard

Willamette Valley more

11/20/2014 - Christine Havens Likes this wine: 91 points

As with the 2004 'Homer', the Shea 'East Hill' Pinot Noir is mature, and is drinking well now. The aromatics are decidedly on the masculine side with intense, savory notes of preserved meat, woodsmoke, incense, dried herbs, and black tea. This profile carries over on the palate giving the impression of a wine that is brooding and muscular. Layers of steeped black fruit are anchored by a firm acid backbone and moderate tannins. The finish is prolonged and tinged with balsam wood and pink peppercorn.

The 2004 Shea 'Homer' Willamette Pinot Noir is well within its drinking window, perhaps in the waning daylight of its splendor. Beautifully complex aromas of forest floor, damp leaves, truffles, mushroom, black cherries, and spice. On the palate, its medium-bodied with gorgeous concentration of fruit, and an energetic jolt of nervy acidity, making for a lovely Pinot that is intense without being weighty. Notes of cocoa powder, raspberry reduction and leather lead to a lengthy finish.

Decanted for 1 hour. Aromas of dried cherry, cranberry, earth and cinnamon. Flavors match the palate with decent dried cherry tinged finish. Was expecting this to be more earthy based on the other 2007 Shea's I have had but this was a pleasant surprise.

Really nice. One of the best pinot's I have had. Took a while to open up. Bit of smoke and black fruit on the palate. Fruit started to show with some air. Big pinot that stands up well to food. May get better with time and will definitely be good with a few more years in the cellar.

The first sip seemed a little light, but, after an hour of air, it all came together. Etherial and nuanced, with elegant fruit and earthy tones. Dark cherry with brackish tea flavors.

What a great expression of Yamhill-Carlton AVA and Willamette Valley fruit. Dark fruit profile with deep blue (especially) and black fruits. Full-bodied, but light on its feet (not heavy or over-extracted). Long, satisfying finish. Outstanding.

Medium, bright & clear ruby red in color. Full, forward, attractive & youthful nose of ripe fruit aromas of cherries, strawberries & raspberries with lovely floral & spice notes of cloves & cinnamon, hints of sous-bois, earthy, dried herbs, minerals and some vanilla notes in the background. Medium bodied with a very good concentration of balanced, smooth & polished textured, ripe fruit flavors of sweet cherries, blueberries & mulberries with spices, minerals, earthy, herbs and a hint of vanilla. Lingering smooth finish. Drinks quite well at present but has the structure and ripe fruit to continue developing with few more years of aging.
