Slightly cloudy appearance, dull not bright. Discovered tiny pieces of solid matter in the glass so seems unfined and unfiltered. Definitely better uncorked than Coravinned, needs to breath a little. With Coravin there’s some reductive notes and vegetable notes. Medium(-) aromas that remind me of stems and fermentation (tank sample) definitely som stems in the ferment. Warm alcohol on the nose and on the palate. Still, good balance between the intensity and the richness of ripe red fruit and the acidity. A little too much alcohol sensation for me. #eolaamityhills #oregon #oregonwine #pinotnoir — 19 days ago
Nice balance of fruit and oak. Tangy nose, silky finish. Paired well with lamb pot pie. — 19 days ago
A beautiful, cool early Autumn evening, relaxing by a fire in the chiminea.
100% Pinot Noir, Disgorged February 2019.
Words escape me... Just wow!
(Notes later, I promise)
24 Hour Update:
Nose has yeasted dough, flat seltzer, limestone infused apple juice, hard crusted bread, oxidized red apple peel and bruised yellow apple.
Palate has tart yellow apple, saline puff pastry, faint lemon juice, limestone infused water, lemon zest with balanced acidity and a long, long finish. Outstanding.
The P-F wines always need a minimum of 24H open, 48H really if you have patience because then they open to just the most beautiful Champagne you've ever paid under $100 for, every time. No fear, the bubbles will wait over 48H so plan ahead for maximum enjoyment. — 20 days ago
Excellent Chardonnay. It is from Oregon- not a place I usually pick Chardonnay from. Lots of oak and fruit. Had with baked chicken. — 10 days ago
Very good flavor. Great Halloween wine. — 6 hours ago
Old school true Barolo aroma, not defined and detailed but potent and authoritative. The body is big and weighty, but not overripe and flabby like some other Serralunga Barolos. Shows a promise of greatness in the making. Maybe the naturally biggest of them all, except Giacomo Conterno’s. — 3 days ago
