  • Nose is fresh with a savory / umami character to is. Also light red fruits, some dark spices, chicken stock. Palate has a lot of energy, sappy fruit (which is not showing to be primarily red, black or blue, feels like a true medley), showing some secondary character; soy, dark anise, cocoa. Very fine texture. Excellent!

  • As the old saying goes, there are no great wines, instead fantastic bottles. This humble wine was exceptional at 12 - fruit very much singing and remarkable balance and length. Everything working in tandem. Simply fantastic juice and hope my few remaining bottles can match the performance of this one.

  • Fruity and generous with acid minus that gives the wine a past peak impression. Tad hot. Drinkable but not sure if it has the stuffing to evolve any more.

  • Grabbed from the cellar last nite and PNP. Interesting pinot. Fairly intense nose of wild flowers, violets and black cherries. I've had this wine awhile back but I see it differently today. Bigger, more lush and spicy, and hotter than I recall. There's a sense of foresty earthiness here, combined with some fairly ripe fruit--black cherries--and Asian spices. The wine is rich and lush--particularly so for a PN, but it has a sense of elegance as well. I like the wine but it's not my style of PN, and is a bit hot. Still, I did last nite and continue to enjoy it today. Also, this wine is far from over the hill. I believe it's currently hitting its stride, and is a quality wine--particularly if you prefer this style of PN.

  • The CT drinking window for this wine closed in 2017. I found a bottle in the dark recesses of my storage and decided I should wait no longer. After 30 min in the glass it was delicious. Soft and rounded flavors. A testament to the quality Shea Wine Cellars produces.
