Eastside Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2016

This was more integrated than the Ferren Silver Eagle. I would like to try this one again in a year or so. Fantastic. — 2 months ago

Hessische Staatsweingüter Kloster Eberbach

Assmannshäuser Höllenberg Spätlese trocken Spätburgunder Goldkapsel Auction 2003

This bottle a bit muted relative to last few fireworks. Undeniably burgundian build but somehow screaming Cote-Rotie / St Joseph fruit profile. Dazzling. — 21 days ago

Rivers-Marie

Occidental Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Shay A
9.3

My 2016 Rivers Marie Pinots are about gone…SummaOV is left. Occidental, Silver Eagle and SummaOV are always my favorites. I’m between a 93-94 here.

Great example of a Pinot that has a lot of power but plenty of balance. Deep black cherry colored in the glass but the aromatics are much more savory than expected. There’s an animalistic/feral quality to this initially (that I love) showing a smoked meat flair alongside dark blood orange and ripe black cherries. Commanding mouthfeel and great acidity. Continual back and forth of dark berry fruit and savory/herbal notes. The use of whole cluster is noticeable but it does a good job complimenting the wine (more high toned) and not taking center stage (as in, not overly stemmy/green). Wonderful lengthy finish. More brooding and savory than Silver Eagle but certainly not in the vein of a “cab lovers pinot” style. This was delicious and likely hangs in this window for at least 5+yrs.
