94 points Vinous: "Powerful, sharply focused aromas of ripe red berries, potpourri and exotic spices are lifted by a smoky mineral nuance. Broad, seamless and concentrated on the palate, offering intense raspberry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors that show impressive energy and a sweetening floral pastille quality on the back half. In a generous yet graceful style, betraying no rough edges and finishing with strong mineral drive and velvety tannins that come in late." - Josh Raynolds
2012 vintage note
Goff Shea 2012 is everything you'd expect from the vintage and the vineyard: rich and robust Pinot noir. The wine enters the palate with good focus and energy, revealing flavors of bing cherry and strawberry melded with savory notes and barrel spice. Showing good flesh and extract the wine moves seamlessly through the mid palate into a long clean finish.
