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! — 4 years ago

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. — 7 years ago

Whistling Ridge Vineyard Ribbon Ridge Blanc 2014

Wow, a marvelous and unexpected quartet of "white" wines (including white no skin Pinot Noir!) that makes for a spectacular blend, more like avant garde string quartet than a rock band, with dazzling aromatics and a plush structure from Pinot Blanc. My first time tasting Marcus Goodfellow's wines at Matello. The fact he also finds Viognier & Syrah in North Willamette and crafts remarkably true to terroir wines makes this a winery to follow! — 7 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. — 6 years ago
