2007 Shea Wine Cellars East Hill Shea Vineyard Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., $55. From five different blocks, 60% Dijon clones and 40% W├Ądenswil clone. Aged 10 months in 43% new French oak. · Deep reddish-purple color in the glass. Flashy aromas of stone fruits and berries, plum sauce and spice. The fruit-infused nose really gets your attention. Rich, full, sweet and beautifully complex array of stone fruits and berries on the palate with an appealing underlying earthiness. Real density here and one of the boldest Oregon Pinot Noirs tasted from the 2007 vintage. This wine offers a clear and unmistakable sense of Yamhill-Carlton terroir. Reviewed November 29, 2009
