Summum Seven Springs Vineyard Chardonnay

Magnificent Chardonnay. 2016 has developed the creamy base to balance a perfect acidity balance. Bouquet is magnificent; flowers and a spring morning. Can’t beat it. — 13 days ago

Sanford & Benedict Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Rather different from my last btl. Five hours or so air. Much more mineral, with loads of crushed stone and red berry. Lovely hi-toned acid on the palate; crushed red raspberry, attenuated tannin on the finish. Nose is better than the palate. — 6 days ago

Sur Echalas Vineyard Syrah 2013

Popped yesterday, notes from 24 hrs open. I used to buy and drink Cayuse wines. but I've soured on these wines in the last 4 years or so...last time I popped a horsepower wine with friends, the joke by the end of the night was: friends don't let friends drink Horsepower. Tasting this alone, I can see what I liked, but a lot of what I didn't like also. Aromatically compelling: strawberry compote, loads of olive brine, pickled cabbage, medicinal.herbs, charcoal, and a fair amount of bretty funk. On the palate: just kind of flat. Ok acidity (better than I remember), some bitter burnt notes, but just missing something; seems a touch thin and weedy and attenuated tannin on the thin finish. Love the fact this is 13.0% ABV, but there is a very long list of Syrahs I would drink over this one...esp given the pricetag.

P.S. I've had all the debates about ageability of these wines, granted the lack of acidity, and vintage variation. These wines are novelty wines, yielding a rather esoteric interpretation of the varietal character of syrah. They were fun for a while, but I don't want novelty anymore: I want depth of character.
