Pipeclay Terrace Pinot Noir 2013

Dragged home all the way from NZ. A nose of rich dark berries - very full across the palate with soft but present tannins long elegant finish. It’s soft colour belies it’s strength. Really fine wine! — 22 days ago

Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

It’s been a crazy time for us, these last six months. First, Em and I got married. Then, a few weeks ago, my mom passed away, after a long battle with cancer. Now, despite the strange timing we’ve just closed on a new place and are in the process of moving in. Heads spinning, we’ve had no shortage of emotions, or reasons to open good bottles of wine.

At first this was totally closed down. Into the decanter and a few hours later a fleeting high toned floral perfume develops. Glimpses of violets, some tart, just ripe black currants, red and purple fruited forest berries, and a hint of black pepper. So elegant, it’s hard to believe this is a Cali cab. It doesn’t taste old or new world really. It just is. Lithe, elegant, and transparent, with thrilling acid and gentle tannins. The structure is there.

All that said, the nose closes up some, after that initial flirtation. Seems to be shut down overall; tertiary qualities yet to develop. The potential is evident. 9.4++

Paras Vineyard Mt. Veeder Syrah 2002

Nose has ripe blackberry, blackberry jam, fruit Roll-up, dried meats, iodine (?), wet leaves, toasted pistachio, fresh violet, wet leather and dark chocolate chunks.

Palate has raspberry jam, dried blackberry, black currant jam, wet leather, dehydrated black cherry, moist cigar and mild tannins persist.

A great showing on this bottle tonight, proof positive on the pedigree of the vineyard. This should age gracefully for the next 8-10Y without concern.

Paired to mesquite smoked pork chops from a 1/2 pig purchase from our dear farmer friend Courtney at Highland Farm (Old Chatham, NY). Please support your local resources.

Sterling Vineyards

Yates Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Better on day two - living up to its Mt Veeder heritage. Bold, dark fruit abound, hint of vanilla and caramel, layers of flavor throughout. Sterling did a nice job with the bounty from Yates Vineyard. This can continue to evolve in the cellar for quite some time. — a month ago

Mt. Jefferson Cuvée Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2019

Medium garnet/purple, nose of earth & some fruit. Very smooth in the mouth, barely medium body vs light, touch of sweetness with strawberry and red plum. Some dryness, mild tannins, some acidity. Very nice! — 15 days ago
