Tasting notes: Light garnet in color, this Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir opens up with beautiful aromas of baking spice, strawberry, raspberry, and blueberry. Hints of rosewater, forest floor, and earthy mushroom spill from the glass. The palate has layered flavors of hearty berries intermingled with savory notes of cinnamon and minerality. The tension and structure create an interesting texture that finishes with hints of anise.

Producer: WALT is dedicated to the production of premier Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Pacific Coast's most distinctive vineyard sites, spanning nearly 1000 miles and including Sta. Rita Hills, Sonoma County, Anderson Valley, and the Willamette Valley. Their philosophy is that of precision, non-interventionist winemaking, thereby allowing the wines to naturally and honestly express the character of the site where the wines are grown. Under the artisanship of Director of Winemaking Steve Leveque and Winemaker Megan Gunderson, WALT Wines will continue to evolve and develop.

Vineyard and Winemaking: Shea Vineyard, located in the Yamhill-Carlton sub-AVA was planted by Dick and Deirdre Shea in 1989 and is commonly known as an Oregon “Grand Cru” site. The vines perch in sedimentary soil over fractured sandstone, stretching from 450 to 630 feet in elevation. The vineyard has produced some of the highest acclaimed Willamette Valley Pinot Noir from the past two decades.
