Drinking very well now! Four wine drinkers were all impressed. Fruit shines through and the balance is fantastic. Just a touch of tannins. While great to drink now, it will probably hold-up for awhile as there was not even a hint of brown at the edges.
Pinot Tasting at Gary's (Hudson, Wisconson): Outstanding effort. Spice, floral, cedar, smoke and blueberries. Nice minerality on the finish. Long finish and super complex. Long life ahead on this one but so good now.
2008 Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir Tasting (Gary's Place, Hudson, WI): medium red color. Decanted 3+hrs. Drank 1 glass over 45 minutes. Ooh la la!! This was a honey. Way more than I anticipated here. The was just explodes out of the glass with an intense perfume of ripe fruits, blueberry and bright berries, earth and spices. The palate is a lighter-medium body with incredible intensity and finesse, almost weightless, lifted, blueberry, red berries mineral, spice, white pepper and long pure finish. Outstanding. This was my WOTN and the group #2 WOTN.
