94 points Wine Spectator Insider: "Impressive for the presence and polish, with layered black cherry, fresh violet and dusky spice flavors that build richness and structure toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2025."

93 points Wine Spectator: "Sleek and polished, with lovely raspberry and fresh violet aromas that open to harmonious dark cherry, stony mineral and black tea flavors. Drink now through 2022."
2014 vintage notes
The 2014 Shea Vineyard is a gorgeous expression of the vineyard in this vintage: a potpourri of dark fruits, blue fruits and loamy earth with a lifted floral perfume reminiscent of roses that adds delicacy and grace. The wine is medium bodied with full ripe fruit flavors that coat the palate with dense silky waves of texture, sweetness and a long mineral and floral finish. Drink now to 2019.
