2016
Chardonnay

Made from Dijon clone vines planted in 1998 and 2003, this is a bright, crisp Chardonnay excellent for food pairing or on its own.  Aromas of peach, nectarine, pear, and white flowers fill the glass.  The palate is beautifully balanced with flavors of ripe melon and lemongrass, bright acidity and great length.

2015 Estate

Pinot Noir

Our Estate Pinot noir is the best representation of Shea Vineyard as a whole in each vintage. For 2015, that means a wine full of rich, dark flavors. A powerful bouquet of black cherry, blackberry, subtle spice notes and hints of floral aromatics lead to a rich palate with plum, black tea and well integrated tannins that will continue to soften with time.

2015 North Block

Pinot Noir

A steep, south facing slope at the top of Shea Vineyard’s east hill (close to 600 feet in elevation at the top), North Block is usually the last pick at Shea Vineyard. This prolonged ripening on the vine leads to full flavor development without excess sugar. Rose, blueberry, and blackberry aromatics lead to a structured palate with concentrated blue and black fruit.
