2016 Shea Vineyard Pinot noir
Shea Vineyard has earned its reputation for consistently high quality Pinot noir.
One of Oregon and the Willamette Valley’s most well-known sites, Shea Vineyard has earned its reputation for consistently high quality Pinot noir.
Always charming and seductive, the 2016 Shea does not disappoint. Notes of black tea, bergamot and grapefruit zest lead to a core of juicy red currants and cherries. The tannins are fine and concentrated and the finish is long.

Established in 2005 by winegrowers Bill Sweat and Donna Morris, Winderlea is located on the original Dundee Hills Vineyard, a 20 acre property they acquired that was originally planted in the 1970s. Adding to their estate vineyard on the red hills bench, Winderlea secured the Meredith Mitchell Vineyard, located in McMinnville, as an estate holding through a long-term lease.
As lovers of wines that speak to the characteristics of each vineyard site, their winemaking is focused and minimalist. Winderlea is obsessed with producing its wines and running its business as sustainably as possible. They are one of only 60 Demeter Biodynamic® Certified Vineyards in the United States and were one of the first five wineries globally to achieve B Corp Certification, demonstrating their commitment to sustainable practices in all aspects of the business.
