Scott Sampler

Walter Scott

X Saxa Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills Aligote

Very light lemon yellow color. Tight and shy on first sniff….then high bright lemon/ lime and tart Granny Smith aromas. Crisp, mineral, unoaked, light in weight, a hint reductive initially; then opening up with zingy acidity that tiptoes across the palate. The wine opens beautifully as it warms and works well with yellowfin crudo and Chicken breast Romesco. The low ABV and lively acid make for a long, interesting finish. By far my best Aligote ever. — 3 hours ago

Horseshoe Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Young but a 500ml “sampler.” Very enjoyable and at 12.7% ABV it had just the right lightness and freshness. — 25 days ago

Gap's Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

This is a delicious Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast. Rich, complex and elegant.

Light burgundy in color with a wide reddish rim.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Showing red currants, cooked cherries, oak, light vanilla, spices, light vegetables, tobacco, chocolates, light barnyard, coffee and peppercorn.

This Single Vineyard is nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and good by itself as a sipping wine.

This 8 year old is peaking now, although it will continue to drink nicely in the next 5 years.

Thank you Scott for sharing.

Wine Spectator 90 points. Robert Parker 94 points.

Grapes were aged in a mixture of new and used French oak barrels, and concrete vats.

@romo : Hope to see you in a few weeks. Travis said he’s planning to invite a few wine people over to his place to share wine and food for an afternoon when I asked if I could meet up with him.

La Paulée Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2011

Final btl. Unscrewed on the 17th, notes from the 19th. Just stunning on days 1 and 2 and far and away the best showing I've had for this wine. Very mild signs of oxidation on day 3 open (unrefrigerated on the counter overnight in between). On the nose: black tea, dried strawberry, wet leaf, spice. On the palate: fantastic acidity, wild strawberry, earthy herbals, with a touch of decay/oxidation and the softest hint of tannin on the finish. Absolutely lovely. — a month ago
