Walt "Shea" Pinot Noir, Yamhill-Carlton District 2015
94 Points Wine Enthusiast
Based in the Napa Valley, this brand from Kathryn Hall focuses on Pinot Noir. This release features grapes from one of Oregon's best sites—the Shea Vineyard, located in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. It's jam-packed with black cherry and cassis fruit, nuanced by firm streaks of tobacco, espresso and sweet spice. Its density and balance are superb.
