The 2018 Shea Vineyard Pinot is all about elegance and refinement. It possesses beautiful aromas of raspberries, sweet cranberries and pomegranate laced with forest floor, pulverized stones, potpourri and orange zest that are simply intoxicating. The palate is beautifully balanced, refined and vibrant. It is precisely structured, with fine silky tannins that give way to red berries and blood orange and lovely minerality which connects everything together on the long, graceful finish. While this is already stunning in its youth, it will only become more compelling as it evolves over the next decade and beyond.
