WALT has been sourcing from this outstanding Oregon Vineyard for many years now and this cool vintage effort is really singing even at the two year mark. The pretty red florals brilliantly combine with fresh red fruits aromatically. Generous and soft with a rich mouthfeel, the Pinot Noir delivers peat moss flavors alongside ripe red cherry and tobacco leaf with good finesse and a long finish. This is already quite nicely evolved, as this beautiful new Pinot Noir will cellar well over the next decade."

2019 WALT Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir Bottle Shot2019 WALT Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir Bottle Shot

Light ruby in color, the wine opens with a perfume of cranberry, raspberry and strawberry aromas. Delicate hints of rose petal, moss and baking spices interweave with the fruit. The body is on the lighter end of the spectrum, with layers of ruby grapefruit, ripe berries and minerality. The tension and structure on the finish punctuate this inviting and complex wine.

We are very fortunate to be able to source fruit from Dick and Deirdre Shea - pioneers of grape growing in Willamette Valley, Oregon. Shea Vineyard's sedimentary soils and unique aspect produce wines of excellent concentration and depth in one of the Pacific Coast's most premier, and extreme, growing regions.

Vintage NotesThe 2019 vintage began with a wet spring bringing three inches of rain in May. In response to the late rains our vineyards received diligent attention to control vigorous vine growth. A long Indian summer followed with mild weather, allowing the fruit to ripen at slow, even place. The long picking windows bore fruit with beautiful freshness at optimal ripeness. The resulting wines are exceptionally elegant.
