Cuvée DD Sonoma County Pinot Noir 2000

From husband and wife team Frances and Terry Leighton, a dark, serious, developed Pinot Noir from David Demostene’s organically-farmed vineyard in Alexander Valley, released after 19 years of aging. Stunning, complex, woodsy. Long memorable finish. — 3 years ago

@Martinez I have so much respect for the owners I just love how they march to their own drum . Not every bottle is a home run but I would be hard pressed to come up with a strikeout.

When I opened the 2015 of this it showed sweet at first, but then was much less show after 9 hrs open. Was this paired with beef? How was that?

@Aravind Asok This pair was with pork medallion with clementines, the citrus combo was phenomenal. The wine was perfectly balanced between sweet/dry. If you've ever met or dined with Terry, this is generally the style he strives to seek out. Also under 14% ABV, so another bonus point. I don't think the wine was showing great in the glassware last night, in addition to smaller pours as the restaurant was packed, I couldn't make the best evaluation. We are taking some bottles into our cellar, so more precise notes in the future. A very general statement, for my palate, is that I think '16 it's drinking better now. I used to adore '15, until '16 dropped. The '16's generally appear more balanced and restrained from an RS standpoint. In the long haul, '15 will be the German vintage for the ages.

La Paciencia Vineyard Grenache 2013

My contribution for a massive Grenache theme wine tasting (being as socially distanced as possible). This was alongside Cayuse God Only Knows, a 2011 No Girls Grenache, SQN Female, Saxum Terry Hogue, Lillian Grenache, 06 and 07 Beaucastel, and others.

Broken record, I know, but these wines are insanely delicious and so well crafted. Very much in the “love it or hate it” style, as typical with Cayuse wines. Much more spice and herbal lift here compared to the 2011. Stemmy, black peppercorn dusted rhubarb, olive, and smoked cherry jerky aromatics. Vibrant, almost nervy, on the palate with beautiful acidity. On the palate, it’s a back and forth between saline, iron driven savory notes and underripe fleshy red fruits. Compared to their Syrah, this is always a bit lighter and more bright. Seems to be drinking at peak.

@Joseph Barsky : There were so many it was hard to focus on them all, but I did write down the following: 2016 Lillian Grenache...wow! So much lifted fruit in an elegant profile. Reminded me of Andremily’s Syrah. 2011 God Only Knows showed more depth than the 2011 No Girls. 2013 Saxum Terry Hogue was VERY good...lots of spice and grilled dark fruits. 2013 SQN Female was hedonistic...all encompassing style. 2006 Chateau de Beaucastel was nowhere near as good as the 2007.

@Shay A. Great tasting! Thank you.

Zeltinger Schlossberg Schmitt Auslese Riesling 2016

In poetic prose, Terry Thiese’s review says nothing beyond this wine being “deeper than terroir.” Not a tangible note or descriptor. Indeed, it is so layered, multidimensional, constantly in motion with intersections of aromas, flavors, textures, and tone. Perhaps the best we can do is capture a snapshot of this spectacular Riesling Auslese in motion.

It’s beautifully expressive and exceedingly generous. A pale hay color and more reserved aromatically compared to the explosive flavor profile. Nose of spiced pineapple, bruised apple, and smokey fumey petrol. Full bodied, well balanced high acid that loses battle to dark buckwheat honeyed notes.

The finish lasts forever. Not satisfying. Not even a little bit.

Thanks @Dawn Emory ! It clocks in at less than 8% abv so there is a good amount of residual sugar but it’s freakin delicious!
