2016 Broadley "Shea Vineyard" Willamette Valley Pinot Noir (Elsewhere $40)

SKU #1411316 94 points Vinous

 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)  (6/2019)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

 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)  (3/2019)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 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*  (10/2018)

91 points Wine Spectator

 Generous and well-built, with floral black cherry, stony mineral and orange peel flavors that take on momentum toward big but refined tannins. (TF)  (8/2018)

This is beautiful Pinot Noir, something that Broadley excels at. The nose has layers of delicate mix berries and fruit, spice, and a touch of earthiness. The palate is medium-light bodied, elegant and long. It gives all of those aromas a canvas to play out over and over. This wine delivers everything that I want from a Pinot.

If you're looking for a singular terroir driven pinot from the Yamhill Carlton for an outstanding price, look no further than the Shea Vineyard from Broadley. Bright, approachable and with subtle hints of that jory soiled earthiness. One could say it's Burgundian in style, but I wanna say this is just a damn fine expression of Oregon in general. The 2016 is beautifully executed and truly one of my favorite pinots I've had this years. Grab a bottle or two, or three. You will not be disappointed.

The nose of this wine shows lots of focused fruit, vibrant, dark and spicy. On the palate it is full of clean, crunchy fruit, cranberry texture with raspberry flavors, some tannin but mostly you feel the limestone origins, that central, focused acid. A very complex wine for the price and while drinkable now I’d put some away to watch its’ evolution. Excellent value from one of Oregon’s best vineyards.
