2008 Shea Wine Cellars Shea Vineyard Estate Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., $40. A blend that expresses the overall vineyard containing every clone including Pommard, Wädenswil and several Dijon clones. · Moderately dark robe in the glass. The nose is flush with nuanced aromas including black cherries, ripe strawberries, red licorice, violets, subtle oak, and a few scents I can’t describe. The wine kept pumping out these lovely aromas for over an hour in the glass. In the mouth, there are pretty flavors of dark red and nicely spiced stone fruits and berries, and the best grape soda you ever had. Moderately rich, with fine grain tannins, a satiny mouth feel and a pleasing lift of acidity on the finish. This is a nicely composed and elegant wine that is the best ever Estate bottling from Shea Wine Cellars. Very good Reviewed June 22, 2010
