Refined and structured, this red is enveloped in supple, multilayered cherry and raspberry flavors that pull in orange blossom and spiced tea accents, unfolding toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2028.

Medium ruby, the 2018 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard opens with delicate notions of charcuterie, aniseed, forest floor and dried blackberries, offering up more nuance with time as it sits in the glass. The medium-bodied palate is firm and juicy, with broody, earthy fruits and loads of energetic lift, finishing long and savory.
Aromas of sweet leather, rose petal and plum fill the senses before even taking a sip. On the palate, notes of fresh fig, vanilla, and pastry dough take over while the fine grain tannins and suppleness of this wine create a well-balanced finish.
