Spring Mountain District Pinot Noir 2010

Wow!! 11 years and this hasn’t lost a thing. A good bit of sediment when opened. Funk took a minute to blow off. Not the typical Cali Pinot fruit that hits you, this is more subtle. Leans more towards French style. Still crazy amount of acidity. Absolute winner. I picked this up off Last Bottle and I’m regretting not grabbing more. I am now searching out School House Pinot. — 16 days ago

No surprise at all these wines Pinot & Chardonnay’s last for decade plus. Must try Au Bon Climat / Jim Clendenen wines . He recently just passed. These wines will go decades. Extremely recently priced. Generally taste better with 5+ years on them. Some people would argue that certain vintages taste better with 10+ years on them. Cheers .

@David L I appreciate the information. I read about Jim Clendenen. Now I need to look for his wines as well. I really enjoyed this style.

Nothing quite like the one you’re trying now. Jim’s wines are much more New World. Especially in their youth.

The House Caneros Pinot Noir 2019

This is a very nice and easy drinking Pinot Noir from Carneros.

Showing red and black fruits with oak, licorice, light vanilla, tobacco, chocolates, coffee and peppercorn.

Medium bodied with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate, soft and smooth. Fruit forward and fresh.

Good right out of the bottle and good by itself or with food. I gave it a light chill and paired it with light appetizers.

13.8% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$25.

Texas winery production...do not pause! One of the best Texas white wines ever tasted, mysterious hints of Russian River whites! Very nice on the palate and finish...great for hot summers. I am not a white wine drinker but still enjoyed this wine...light fruit and lemony finish, somewhat sophisticated. Balanced and smooth drinker, not sweet but tart enough. Winery locale very remote with deep Australian roots, multiple generation vintner. Grapes of the Barossa Valley, winery near enough to Austin, TX and Lake Travis. Only available at the tasting room of the winery or the club ...which has over 1000 members! — a month ago
