$36 for 2020 Vintage. Bought at Vineyard. Smooth and rich, long lasting flavors — 2 months ago
A fair amount of depth. Medium-low sweetness. Herbs on the front, rosemary. Develops into peaches and watermelon. A touch of honey as it finishes.
Overall, a definite rebuy! — 10 months ago
At the vineyard for a tasting with Kathleen, Jay and Josie Barton, Jenny Rhodes. A bit less tannin than the 2020. Bolder than the estate Pinot Noir. — 2 years ago
Drank in September 2023. At 6 years old this Zinfandel was very smooth and balanced. Just a hint of pepper on the palate. Paired well with grilled food — 6 months ago
I remember the day I purchased this. I was in Portland and rushed to the winery only to find it was closed. With the best king’s English, I begged them to open their doors and throw me a bone! I got these (which was what I went there for). In my experience, Oregon wines are rarely over-extracted, this is a prime example, respecting the varietal. Cola, tree bark and sandalwood on the nose and palate. Nice notes of orange peel and pomegranate on the mid palate. Finishes with a vivid streak of bright acidity. This ain’t going anywhere for a very long time. Tastes like I recall it many years ago. If I recall correctly wine spectator soiled their pants over this bottling/vintage, too. — a year ago
Textbook #rightbankbordeaux - a riper youthful style, black/blue fruit on nose, some cigar box, earthy notes. Quite approachable palate, of course nicely balanced acidity, firm tannins. This would be fantastic in a decade but lovely wine to drink on our 15th wedding anniversary this night. Great bottle price second wine from an eminent #stemiliongrandcru estate offered at one of our favorite Houston restaurants. — 9 months ago
