This is one of the wines I visited for. Lovely, structured presentation, yet light on it’s feet. Shows a polished, textured approach on the palette. Pin-sized berries tease the senses. Finishes with a regal concentration. A first growth in Oregon. — 6 days ago
Sorry about the faux label - lost my pic somewhere.
The last wine from my Oregon tasting, and it was a special one.
Lovely nose of blackberries and minerals. Palette is saturated, concentrated and sails on. Very supple. $100 wine - I’m not sure about that... — 6 days ago
For my 1K milestone, I selected one of our Napa faves...
My wife described the nose as “masculine,” and she’s spot on. Loads of cinnamon interplay with barrel toast and charcoal.
Palette is ethereal as the wine has shed its puppy fat. Now displays cloves, white pepper and ripe berries. Finishes with hints of caramel. This can be cellared for another 10 years, easily.

Eyes right for just a mo... pasta and sage with butternut squash. Prep’d for my wife by yours truly 🙂
Now onto the wine... Visited Eminent and it was closed, but they threw me a bone. Looks like a cab in the glass, but the nose gives the game away. This is tightly wound and requires aging. Beautiful fruit support the tannins perfectly. Oak profile is neutral. A strong effort which is below my price pain threshold. — 6 days ago
