One of Oregon’s most iconic vineyards, Shea is planted over two separate and very distinct slopes.  The earliest plantings were on West Hill, a vineyard of mostly soft, rolling contours with one notable exception: The Ravine.  Lined with fir trees and jarringly steep, the thin soils create an exceptional landscape that produces wines in vibrant contrast to other parcels of Shea, full of heady aromatics, floral perfume, and rich texture.  

"Producing a gorgeous light ruby core that moves to a watery-blue rim, the 2021 Shea-West Hill Pinot Noir from Sunu (Betz Family) is a light, velvety, and elegant wine. Very floral and lemony on the nose, with additional aromas of fresh cranberry, thimbleberry, dried earth, lemon verbena, and dried herbs. Sweet rounded tannins, plush acidity, and a fruit-forward and white pepper finish complete this gorgeous wine. Drink 2023-2031."

"Spice, minty herbs, smoked earth, iron, and red and black fruits define the 2021 Pinot Noir Shea West Hill The Ravine, a richer, medium-bodied, concentrated Pinot Noir that's balanced, has a great mid-palate, and enough structure to warrant a few years in the cellar."
