A blend of 73% Shiraz, 17% Grenache, 5% Mataro and 5% Viognier, dark Ruby with aromas of dark fruits, licorice, pepper spice and floral notes. On the palate flavors of ripe blackberry and plum with licorice, espresso and oak. Well balanced, great mouthfeel, soft fine tannins and texture, long finish ending with pepper spice, smoky oak and cacao. Very nice! — a day ago
Very Raj+Sashi in that this is pure French, summoned from New World. Very Chablis at first. With decanting and temperature White Burg appears. Both with a drop more fruit than their old world counterpoints. Very enjoyable already and I’d venture this will age beautifully for a decade+. — 11 days ago
To me this is just to be called Riesling+
I went to grab a box from the cellar and i found this bottle had the cork popped out.
Well, it must have been opened for a couple of days at least cause the wine that spilled out was vanished, floor was dry. However a couple of glasses were left in the bottle and i obviously gave it a go.
The wine was pretty cloudy, marvellous intensity though; it had freshness, mineral, fruit, aromatic herbs and spices. A pity cause I was meant to bring this back to Europe next year to get some friends to taste it. Very very long. — 17 days ago
This 6 year old is drinking very nicely now. Showing cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, coke, light vegetables and spices.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate and easy drinking with a light mouthfeel.
Tasty, spicy and elegant.
Good right out of the bottle, and good by itself.
13.7% alcohol by volume.

Blown away. I cannot recall a domestic pinot noir that holds a candle to this wine. A clear ruby in the glass with soaring notes of forest floor, crushed cherries and raspberries, tobacco and sandalwood. On the palate, elegant yet multidimensional with incredible depth of flavor, with gradually building notes of mushroom, meaty dark cherries, cranberries, leather and anise followed by a persistent spicy and mouth coating finish. Very Burgundian, leaning toward a top notch vosne romanee. — 6 days ago
Strong and pleasing caramel and vanilla aromas. Some cocoa and sandalwood too. — a day ago
A wine from wine tasting visit to a NH winery after a hike to Welch and Dicky Mountains with colleagues. The winery was located on a busy street in a small town. The tasting was excellent! This Tempranillo was one of the good ones we tasted. Tangy with pommegran taste. I bought a souvenir grande glass, too! Would go again! — 8 days ago
Color of shades of purple, just a bit cloudy. Nose of beautiful aldehyde, dried strawberry, spice, vanilla, oak, a bit plum, a bit tobacco leaves, and some more dark fruit fragrance. Nose of nice. Taste of polished tannin, a bit sweetness from dark fruits note, bold zest, ripe grapes, oak, mellow and smooth. Aftertaste is also pretty solid, with a touch of peppery note. — 22 days ago
Year in and year out, this is one of my favorite wines from one of my labels. A mild garnet color with thin edges. The exceedingly pleasing nose features notes of green tea, shy red cherries, and fresh herbs. Faded rose petals and raspberry crumble round things out.
I hate to use the term Burgundian to describe domestic Pinots. It’s almost always false and just plain isn’t fair. This definitely deserves the moniker. Silky smooth in the mouth with medium acidity and body. Well integrated tannins and some lively spice add to the prettiness of this.
The combination of rusticity and elegance really takes this to another level. Sly and delicate red fruit shine on the palate while the earthiness takes hold. Moist earth, dried forest, and straight up gravel. Long finish showing more spice and just a little kick of cinnamon. Spectacular stuff that really shows what Oregon Pinot is about. — 20 days ago
