Willamette Valley Riesling 2012

Tim
9.3

I have somewhat limited experience with domestic Riesling, but this is so crushable.

Appearance: Pale gold with a very slight greenish tinge, light to medium body, translucent

Nose: Lemon rind, pineapple, petrol-plastic (in the best way)

Taste: pineapple without the biting acidity or sweetness, some green melon, light petrol, Granny Smith green apple

Would say a pleasant surprise but Marcus Goodfellow just kills it more often than not. We paired this with Thai chili crab cakes and a green apple slaw with chili lime cashews and fish sauce based marinade. Perfection. Need some more of this in my life.

Whistling Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

As I expected, this is way too young. The structure is there, but Whistling Ridge is the one Matello/Goodfellow wine that IMO should rest for at least 5 - 6 years. — 8 years ago

Rich big white with bright acidity. Showing its age. Could it have a little botrytis? — 8 years ago

Fool's Journey Duex Vert Vineyard Syrah Blend

The most pinot like syrah one could imagine! Maraschino cherries blast you initially, but nice tannic grip and lingering bright red finish make this an interesting treat. Yum! — 6 years ago

Durant Vineyard Chardonnay 2011

I think this is my first Oregon Chardonnay, and it definitely makes me want to seek out some more because this is very nice. Showing some development; I'd drink now if you've got one because I think from this point on it's going to start getting tired rather than much better but this was very pleasing nonetheless. Stylistically, this one is drinking somewhere between the leaner styles of oaked California stuff and Côte de Beaune white Burgs. Pours gold of moderate concentration of color. Nose has moderate concentration of aroma, and consists of salted lemon, chalky, crushed oyster shell minerality, baked yellow apple, hard aged cheese rind, baking spices, white chocolate, and a touch of hazelnut and savory truffled character. Palate is more focused and linear than the nose might suggest with more emphasis on the citrus and saline mineral characteristics. Nice complexity. Brisk high acidity, body is medium/borderline medium (-); the only issue i have with this wine is that I wish it had a bit more weight and concentration in the mouth. Really enjoyable stuff. Very alive, aromas keep shifting as the wine gets more exposure to air and warms up. After a while the nose developed a kind of cinnamon buttered toast character that was super nostalgic for me, reminded me of childhood. — 7 years ago

Willamette Valley Rosé of Pinot Noir

MV -I believe a blend of 2013 & 2014. More earthiness than prior bottle, but really like how it has evolved. — 8 years ago
