Vivid red. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red berries, baking spices and potpourri; hints of candied rose and rhubarb emerge with aeration. Juicy black raspberry and boysenberry flavors slowly stretch out and become sweeter and deeper on the back half. Shows excellent clarity and floral thrust on the impressively persistent finish, which is supported by harmonious tannins that fold quickly into the lingering, sappy fruit. (JR)
A lot of Oregon vintners are eager to get on Shea's customer list, and this bottle is as good an example as any why that's the case. A striking mix of cranberry, strawberry, raspberry and marionberry flavors, it also sports a firm seam of stem and earth. The tannins are smooth and polished, with the pleasantly drying mouthfeel of tea. (PG)
While the nose was certainly restrained, aggressive swirling eventually liberates elegant and pure aromas of essence of both red and dark raspberry, spice and a floral hint. The mouth feel of the middle weight flavors is sleeker if a bit less muscular and robust than most examples of Shea though the typical firm tannins are sufficiently prominent to make clear that this is going to require at least moderate cellaring will be required. There is a touch of warmth though it's reasonably low key and not enough to really disturb the overall sense of balance. *Outstanding*
Generous and well-built, with floral black cherry, stony mineral and orange peel flavors that take on momentum toward big but refined tannins. (TF)
