2010 Shea Wine Cellars Shea Vineyard Block 7 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., 300 cases, $56. W├Ądenswil clone. From a 5.2-acre nonirrigated parcel on a steep, south-facing slope. Aged in 64% new French oak. · Moderately dark reddish-purple color in the glass. Very shy nose offering delicate aromas of blackberry pie, coconut and violets. Very soft and seductive in the mouth, showing admirable elegance. Delicious middleweight flavors of dark red and black cherries and berries wrapped in supple tannins, finishing dry with some length. The silky texture is the most striking feature of this wine. The aromas should appear in this wine over time. Very good. Reviewed November 24, 2012
