2012 Sheila Reserve Pinot Noir 1.5L

As with other vintages, the 2012 “Sheila” is made from the top four barrels from the best blocks of the vineyard. This starts with everything we love about the 2011 “Sheila:” black cherries, floral aromas, baking spice, bright acids and silky tannins, plus the warm-weather character of 2012, showing dark cherry, blackberries and currants. With air, soft aromas of buttered pecans and dusty earth yield to classic Oregon pinot aroma and subtle oak for a complex, beautifully-made wine with great aging potential.

 Enjoy a larger than life bottle with this magnum of Blakeslee wine.  Equivalent to two regular bottles, this wine will impress the best at any party or event and has the capability to be held longer and age at a slower rate.

Robert Brittan left Stags’ Leap Winery in Napa after 16 years as Winemaker and Estate Manager to fulfill his dream of making Pinot Noir and Syrah from unique sites in cooler climates. His winemaking career began in his dorm room at Oregon State University, where he was a physics and philosophy major.

Being both geeky and broke, he soon realized that alcohol was an attractant to co-eds, so he began his career in fermentation sciences in order to get a date. He ultimately completed his education at UC Davis and moved to Napa Valley, where he made wines for Far Niente, Saint Andrews and Stags’ Leap Winery.

With over 40 years of experience growing grapes and making wine, he brings a significant amount of viticultural and winemaking knowledge to Brittan Vineyards. He has always had a passion for Pinot Noir, and hopes that with the fruit from the Brittan estate vineyard in the foothills of the Coastal Range, he can bring a new voice to the McMinnville AVA, and help form the style and definition of Pinot Noir from this recently designated winegrowing region.
