2017 Shea East Hill

The iconic Shea Vineyard comprises plantings across two distinct slopes in southeastern Yamhill-Carlton. The East Hill is the larger and steeper of the two, dropping several hundred feet across the site. Its oldest vines were planted in the late-1980’s and Shea Vineyard East Hill has since proven itself as one of the standards of West Coast Pinot Noir, producing muscular, meaty and age-worthy wines.

 

"The savory, spice, almost meaty 2017 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard East Hill offers a rich, mouthfilling, medium to full-bodied style. Like all the wines here, it’s balanced, has fine tannins, and a great, great texture." 92-94, Jeb Dunnuck
