2004 Shea Wine Cellars Homer Shea Vineyard Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $75. “Vintage of the decade” according to Dick. · Appealing minerality, earthiness and charcoal embracing the rich dark fruits. Saucy, fat and lush with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. A seamless wine of great charm and clearly the star of this vertical tasting. That said, the 2005 and 2006 vintages should surpass it in years to come. Reviewed September 15, 2008
