2003 Shea Wine Cellars Homer Shea Vineyard Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.9% alc., 145 cases, $65. A very hot vintage. making it difficult to reign in alcohols. · Lovely scents of Bing cherry, violets, exotic woods and char. Rich and juicy palate of black cherries with velvety tannins and an appealing roundness in the mouth. Subtle oak runs through and adds interest. No hint of over ripeness as one would anticipate.
