2005 Shea Wine Cellars Homer Shea Vineyard Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.25% alc., $75. Winemaker Chris Mazepink (2005-2006). A moderate vintage with rain at harvest. · Fruity and floral scents with delicious black raspberry flavor and a tangy finish. A little smoke on water is evident in this and the 2006 vintage due to cooperage choices. More acidity this vintage. There are still some well-integrated tannins to shed and this will continue to improve in the bottle. Great verve. Reviewed September 15, 2008
