Did Not Enjoy this wine at all, Powdery Candy Fruit like a fun dip package, neeeded something, maybe time will turn this around I came back to this 3 times during the tasting to see if it would open up with air over the hours, nope

2008 Shea Wine Cellars Pinot Noir Homer Shea Vineyard USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley
This was a interesting wine, was put in a decanter, now I know why they did that, was so massive, it really did scream out for a steak, dark, savory, sturctured.

Conc: was a good wine, but wasnt my style
