Westside Road Neighbors Pinot Noir 2008

2008 vintage. Decanted and tasted after 10 mins-2 hrs. Super small amount of sed in the dregs. Vibrant nose and relatively balanced early on but picked up some overt tartness after lounging in the decanter for an hour. Medium body. Decent showing and maybe has 3-4 more years at this level before dropping down another notch. 9.23.23. ā€” 10 days ago

Les Pommiers Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2017

Probably at its peak. Fairly ripe for PN, definitely a steak wine. But drinking very well with a little age on it. Paired it with chicken dick. Not ideal. ā€” 12 days ago

I get why people who generally always review this producer as just good consuming it young. This is ten years from birth, eight years in bottle and it is still not at its peak. it has ten years and perhaps more properly stored. Very good tonight but better things ahead. It takes this long and longer for WS Pinots to shine.

The palate is, juicy, ripe, rich, a bit lush; blackberries, dark cherries, black plum, black raspberries, purple fruits, hues of blueberries, plum and ripe to dry strawberries with a pomegranate overlay. Then, dry earthiness, top soil, crushed rocks & powdery limestone & chalkiness, dark spices, some black pepper, dry brush, eucalyptus, tree sap, sun tea, black and red cola/licorice, drier tobacco, barrel dust to shavings, nutmeg, cinnamon stick, vanilla, touch of dry herbs-bay leaves & sage, bright red, pink, blue, purple florals framed in dark slightly withering florals, rain shower acidity, the finish is; well structured & balanced in fruit, earth & flowers, some more tension than I like but will soften & fade nicely in 3-5 years. But, wire to wire really even and stunning. Evolution & integration is good but needs 3-5 years to be its best. Coravin glass.

IMHO, one of the outstanding CA Pinot producers. Walter Hansel gives them a run for the money at their fantastic price point.

Medium ruby color. Aromas of strawberry, cherry and green tea. Tasty spices on this one with a red fruit undertone.
