Great blend. Syrah. Grenache. 2014 best year — 25 days ago
To celebrate International Riesling Day, I opened a tasty and interesting one from Oregon.
Dry on the palate with lemons, diesel, minerals, earth, red and yellow apples, spices, pears, light pineapples and guava.
Medium plus in body and elegant, with pretty legs.
Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel.
Tangy finish with limes. Crisp and refreshing.
This 4 year old, Single Vineyard Riesling, is drinking very nicely now. Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years.
Tasty and easy drinking, but also intriguing.
I had it by the pool.
12.5% alcohol by volume.

Very light and refreshing. Floral with nice white pepper. Really good mineral earthiness. — 2 months ago
This young Pinot Noir from Oregon is starting to drink nicely now. Showing mild complexity and a soft mouth feel.
Good right out of the bottle and gets earthier as it opens up. Good by itself and better with food.
This Single Vineyard is still young, and would age nicely in the next 7 years. Would be nice to revisit it in 2 to 5 years. Showing great potential.
I paired it with Italian Prosciutto and goat cheese.

Wow, I didn’t peg this for an Oregon Pinot Noir! I just tasted it blind and thought for sure it was a Bordeaux blend. 🤷🏻♀️ 🇫🇷 🇺🇸

This is a very interesting Riesling from Oregon. A little spicy with earth notes. Really enjoyed the nose here.
A good quality wine. Will be interesting to revisit it in 5 years.
Tangy and refreshing, and good by itself or with food.
I enjoyed it all by itself, by the lake.
