A pleasant Pinot showing the warmth of the vintage instead of Oregon's grace. // it's a Pain Perdue nose with gingerbread and rich red jelly. There's plenty of acid, but you've also got spice and warm fruit on the palate. Deliciously leaning into the warm 2014 vintage. $24 retail. — a month ago
Rich, warm, & smooth. The mahogany of an old British Private Club. // The dark center is gradually starting to turn a rich red. Red candied licorice with dusty pipe tobacco and old leather aromas. Seductive silky texture and warm flavors with laid-back intensity. Warm lingering finish. A masculine and comfortable wine. *tasted from 375ml — 2 months ago
A California Chardonnay of grace and beauty. // Straw color. Apricot and peach nose. Dense and structured palate with lots of glycerol power. Finish starts to show some prettiness but we're still in a intensity zone here. This will improve with age. $50 retail. — 3 months ago
Deep dark purple color. Borders on opaque. Nose is blueberry cream, cinnamon, smoke, and violets. All that on the palate but add melting beef fat and a surprising brightening note from pleasant acid. Deep and dense and compressed, but still one heck of a wine. Check it again in 5 years. $42 Retail. — a month ago
