St Innocent - Pinot Noir - Shea Vineyard - Yamhill-Carton - Willamette - Oregon - 750 ml

About This Item

Overview: St. Innocent began as an idea conceived in a moment of passion and inspiration in 1983. Mark Vlossak spent the next five years studying, taking classes, and apprenticing with Oregon wine pioneer, Fred Arterberry. In 1988, St. Innocent Winery was founded. Our goal is to produce wines that respect the quality and tradition of the Old World in one of the newest and most exciting wine growing regions on the planet: Oregon's Willamette Valley.  

Tasting notes:The density of aromas of the 2016 Pinot noir Shea Vineyard are apparent before your nose even reaches the glass. Compellingly rich dark flowers, berries, sweet herbs and cassis slowly fill your mouth. It is beautifully balanced given the intensity of the savory fruit and spice flavors arrayed across your mid-palate. The tannins are dense yet still well rounded and enhanced by just the right touch of acidity. It is gratifying that this ripe site in this warm vintage has many dimensions that will reveal themselves as it ages.
