“Oregon has never had three consecutive vintages like this,” said Dick Shea of Shea Vineyards. “There were bigger berries in 2014, and they really ripened up. This encouraged the blue component in the color and flavor. The grapes were smaller in 2015 and there was more heat at harvest, which made for more black fruit flavors. The 2016s also had small berries, and we thought it would be identical to 2015. In the fermentations, the wines showed more aromatic lift and less tannins. They’re more elegant.” -Wine Harvest Report 2016, Harvey Steinman, Wine Spectator, October 2016.
