Our Shea Vineayrd blocks are planted with Pommard, Wadenswil, 777, and 114 clones which produce wines with exotic spice aromas and bold structure. Shea VIneyard is owned by Dick and Deirdre Shea.
“Aromas of strawberry jam and hibiscus tea. The palate delights with the warm richness of a sweet berry reduction, combined with more savory notes of vanilla, tobacco and earth. Acidity and tannins are beautifully integrated for a soft and silky finish.”
“This is a polished and complex young pinot that offers deeply spicy and ripe, darker cherries with attractive freshness. The palate delivers a suave, upbeat and very long, spice-laced array of rich, black-cherry and licorice flavor and carries deep into the fresh, even finish. Drink or hold.
