👌🏼 bright and fresh, stone fruit, nice acid, ever so slightly pink. Lovely. — a month ago
Oregon whites are giving me vibes in a yellow green filter. Here, a dank herbal floral thing of mosaic hops, crystalized marijuana, and jasmine perfume wafting around crisp granny smith, lemon, and grassy pilsner. So different and distinct and the way the sour wraps around the sides of my tongue makes this feel very whole. — 3 months ago
Bought a dozen on release in approximately 2003. Have 2 left after this one. Very dark Ruby in colour - impenetrable. An initial note of barnyard reduction which blew off. Great density on the palate where the wine tastes young, fresh and full bodied. Strong cassis, black currant, brambles and blue fruits. Amazingly concentrated. Will live into the early 2030’s I believe. A Tour de Force. The previous bottle I had to this was January 2018. — 4 months ago
Slightly deeper ruby garnet , narrower rim . Deeper and younger , touch of wood smoke then quite ripe black fruits , rounder with better definition on the nose than the 1994 . More degraded cassis and grafite noticeable than the wine before, tobacco , touch of seashell , marine influence comes though . On the palate the fruit fills out better than the 1994, quite dark and serious , grafite , tobacco and cedar , however the tannin is less rustic and better integrated . Nice balancing acidity. This has quite good length and is showing well now though could age a little longer. Probably is best drunk over the next few years — a month ago
Smooth tar, cedar, pomegranate, ocean water-soaked wood, silky, hot leather, granite, cranberry. Gorgeous texture. Drying sensation on the mouth and not an extremely long finish (could be due to improper storage) — 4 months ago
Has all the muscle and fruit, but doesn't just give it up. A reserved, cooler spirit asking to be treated seriously. And I do.
A fist full of gravely forest dirt, stemmy green woodsy bite, and sweet cherry flesh.
Punches above its weight - what can I say, Oregan seems to consistently make me happy. — 4 months ago
Dark scarlet color with a deep center. Notes of black cherry, cola, roses, cassis, some spice and a little wood char. Amazing perfume in the nose. Smooth and silky in the mouth. Lots of drama with this one, and many agreed the 59 was better than the 45, the 61 and 82 Latours beside it. Bravo! — 4 months ago
