The 2017 Shea has intense dark aromas of dried flowers, white pepper, dried blackberries and earth. Supple while pervasive flavors of raspberry, black cherry and dried strawberry are intertwined with cola, dark chocolate and ginger root. The ample tannins blend effortlessly with the sweet acidity, fading gently into the finish. Pair with hearty dishes with some sweetness and richness like lamb chops, pork tenderloin, duck breast and lentil dishes.

Glistening magenta. Spice- and mineral-accented raspberry, boysenberry and cherry aromas are complemented by suggestions of five-spice powder and candied rose. Seamless, energetic and appealingly sweet, offering concentrated red and blue fruit, exotic spice and floral pastille flavors braced by a smoky mineral undertone. Shows superb definition and floral lift on the penetrating finish, which is framed by supple, harmonious tannins.

This is a lighter vintage and produced a less-impactful version of a wine from this iconic vineyard. It's balanced and tasty, with touches of tomato leaf and clean strawberry fruit. Tannins are lightly green but proportionate, with a kiss of barrel toast to finish. It's a well-made wine good for drinking over the next three or four years.
