2007 Shea Wine Cellars Block 33 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.4% alc., 100 cases, $65. Dijon 777. 100% wood fermented. Aged in 75% new French oak barrels. This is the first single Dijon clone wine from Shea Vineyard. Dijon clone 777 is the most widely planted in the vineyard. · Floral aromas are striking along with pleasing scents of spiced cherries. Plenty of dark-fruited Pinot sweetness. Softly textured, mediumweighted, sturdy on the palate with a dry finish. Needs more time but a pretty classy ride now. Reviewed August 17, 2009
