The best example of Shea Vineyard as a whole in any given vintage is the Estate Pinot Noir. Pulled from every block of the vineyard we use for our own production, the Estate embodies the intense yet complex nature of Pinot Noir in the 2017 vintage. Dark red fruit including raspberries, black tea, clove and rose aromatics define the nose. The palate has smooth tannins and bright acidity while still being rich and rounded.

The estate bottling brings together the various clones planted at this iconic vineyard. Offering a complex weave of plum, marionberry and blackberry, it matches its delicious fruit with 40% new French oak, adding a seam of coffee and dark chocolate. The tannins are polished to a fine gloss.

Saturated garnet. Pungent, spice-accented red berry and cherry aromas, along with suggestions of candied rose, vanilla and smoky minerals. Seamless and broad on the palate, showing good heft and spicy cut to concentrated raspberry, cherry compote, mocha and floral pastille flavors. The floral quality carries through an energetic finish that features discreet tannins and a lingering suggestion of sappy red fruit. Made with 18% whole clusters and aged in 40% new oak.
