2010 Shea Wine Cellars Shea Vineyard Block 31 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.6% alc., 240 cases, $56. 67% Pommard, 33% W├Ądenswil. Aged in 67% new French oak. · Moderately dark reddish-purple hue in the glass. The most expressive nose in the lineup with glass-filling aromas of dark red and black stone fruits and berries accented with a hint of spice and a floral note. Delicious mid weight essence of blackberries and cherries with a complimentary earthy bent. Well-integrated oak and a velvety mouth feel. Tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, there was more oak intrusion. What this means for the future of this wine is unclear but it is irresistable now. Very good.
