    September 30, 2017 - Decanted at 6 pm and tasted over 4 hours. This wine is a translucent light to medium ruby with a crimson edge. The nose has spicy white pepper, pine/eucalyptus, cherry and is slightly flinty. At first it was bright and lively in the glass but it got weightier and richer with air yet having medium+ acidity and low to medium tannin. On the palate it has the white pepper and some baking spices, nice minerality, tart cherry, cranberry and a piney, pomegranate finish which was longer than expected (about 30 seconds.) This is another example of a 2011 Oregon Pinot that has developed into a very fine wine with good balance and complexity and one with a fairly long life ahead in a good cellar. May deserve a higher score in a few years.
    Of note: a glass left over for the next day at noon was even better, rich, nice texture still bright with acidity and red fruits of cherry and cranberry. I am upgrading a point now 92 up from 91.

    August 9, 2017 - Reminds me of a bit of a cru beaujolais. This wine needed a bit of air, and could cellar for another few years.

    August 8, 2017 - The wine pours a nice ruby red. The nose is light and subtle with notes of berries, earth and slight oak from the barrel. On the palate, the oak from the barrel becomes more pronounced and the berry notes coat the mouth and allow you to fully enjoy the Pinot grape! All in all a beautiful offering from a Pinot noir expert!

    July 10, 2017 - Light to medium red. Pinot fruit and some herb in the nose. Interesting and yummy red berry fruit and candy palate. Finishes a little harsh, with bitterness in the tannin.

    May 26, 2017 - Very good quality - I've always liked Shea products. This has all the characteristics you're looking for in Oregon Pinot. Raspberry/Cranberry, a touch of smoke, light spice, piney resin. A light intriguing finish. Excellent.
