Ken Wright Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
“Being at the winery to taste the newly bottled 2017 vintage release and now getting to taste a bottle of the same beautiful Pinot Noir this past week has brought me back to just how much the combined talents of Dick Shea and Ken Wright truly shines through in this special, highly-rated bottling. We’re thrilled that our clients have this opportunity to purchase & enjoy this magical Pinot Noir.” Jim Nejaime, SPIRITED
"Deep, glistening ruby-red. Deeply perfumed scents of red berry liqueur, cherry cola and baking spices, and a floral overtone that emerges with air. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering juicy black raspberry, cherry-vanilla and rose pastille flavors plus a smoky top note. The spice and floral notes repeat on a long, smooth finish framed by harmonious, silky tannins." – (Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media)
'Extraordinary, Cellar Selection': "Scents of tea, sassafras and ripe cherry open the way to a bright palate. Air this out and it brings up hints of umami and truffle, leading into an elegant and detailed finish with a dash of allspice. It's a distinctive and unique expression of this iconic vineyard. Enjoy now through 2030."
