The 2014 Bergström Wines Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir is a vibrant dark ruby red color. The aromas are of dark red fruits, jelly jars, loamy earth, sweet toasted oak, and a panoply of baking spices. Vibrant and juicy with great mouthfeel, this wine showcases the ripe vintage but maintains freshness, juiciness and balance with great fruit flavors of cherry and black raspberry. There is a sweet long finish with a beautiful core of pure fruit and spice.

Wine EnthusiastBergström has made a Shea designate since 2003, intent on showcasing a "pretty" style of the vineyard. Here are lovely aromatics, with grape jelly, rose petals and plum in the nose, and a complex run of red fruits in the mouth. Streaks of cola, brown sugar and more come up in a generous finish.

Wine AdvocatePale to medium ruby-purple, the 2014 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard has a pepper and fragrant earth nose with notes of moss, fungi and dried leaves intermingled with notions of kirsch, red roses and milk chocolate. Medium-bodied, the palate has a solid structure of grainy tannins and refreshing acidity supporting the taut red fruit flavors, finishing long and earthy.

Wine SpectatorFirm and chewy, with swarms of fine tannins around a core of minerally black cherry and licorice flavors, gliding into a lengthy finish. Needs cellaring to soften the edges. Best from 2018 through 2022.
