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!

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

Château La Gaffelière

Dame de Gaffelière Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

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

Prager

Wachstum Bodenstein Smaragd Riesling 2013

Note to self, drink more Austrian wine in 2023. A nose that kept luring me in with a hook made of citrus and honey, haunting. In the mouth, acid and minerals declared eminent domain until it released flavors of pears, salt, watermelon and orange.

Winton, I have no clue why Delectable is not allowing me to specifically send a comment to you.  I have no idea how that color came about.  Hopefully we could share a bottle this year.
