Wine Advocate 92 points - The 410 cases of Shea Cellars 2011 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard Homer reflect barrels from three blocks, none of which were subjected to solo bottlings, and is at 13.7% alcohol the highest of its collection. Rutabaga and radish earthily and bitingly scent and flavor the juicy fresh cherry, red currant and red raspberry on display here. A lovely sense of tannic refinement; of transparency to stony and forest floor nuances; and of energy makes this long-lingering Pinot another impressive exemplar of its vintage likely to reward return visits through at least 2022.

SHEA VINEYARDSr> 2011 SHEA PINOT NOIR HOMER
"Vivid red. A heady bouquet evokes candied raspberry, boysenberry, Asian spices and potpourri, with subtle vanilla and cola notes building with air. Sappy, penetrating and pure, with red and dark berry flavors gaining weight and spiciness in the glass. Powerful but lithe pinot with excellent finishing focus and persistent spiciness. Give this youthful wine at least another five years of bottle age." Josh Raynolds Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellar 93 points (2010 vintage)

|Shea Wine Cellars is the winemaking effort of grape growers Dick & Deirdre Shea. After ten years of selling all our grape production we decided to create our own expression of Shea Vineyard terroir.
We now use 25% of Shea Vineyard’s production for our own effort and sell the remaining grapes to some of the finest Pinot noir producers in Oregon and California.
At Shea Wine Cellars it is our intention to continue to make small quantities of world class Pinot noir and Chardonnay.
