Wine review: 2012 Broadley Vineyards Pinot Noir 'Shea Vineyard'

This is a great example of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir from Oregon in an outstanding vintage. The grapes come from the famous Shea Vineyard in Yamhill County. The result is a Pinot with lovely dark-toned fruit, a pretty nose of rose petals and cherries, and a smooth, silky texture. And you don't need to know a thing about wine or Pinot Noir to appreciate its beauty.

It's great with sautéed calf's liver, fried quail, a roast chicken or a pot pie.
