Saint Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

2017 vintage. Some structure but def not for the long term. Berries and cherries mostly with a slight mint/sage herbal component on the light finish. Easy drinker and a good MOR party wine Bordeaux — 13 days ago

Very good — better than the regular label but you can see similarities. Deep and fruity but drinkable. Will be interesting to try after aging a bit mor. — a year ago

Laumersheimer Kirschgarten Großes Gewächs Spätburgunder 2014

Oh man, this is a good Pinot. Strawberry and oak intermingled in an amazingly elegant wine. But a few more years will probably add to the complexity and make for an even mor pleasant tasting. Looking forward to it. — 2 years ago

Fort Ross

Sea Slopes Fort Ross Vineyard Pinot Noir

Maybe I need to stop being so impressed when Cali wines are so well made and well balanced, but once again I am. Not ready to follow Robert Parker in the statement”tastes like a grand cru from the Cote de Nuits,”but it is delicious and quite deep, drinking mor like a higher end Oregon Pinot to me. Nose of sun baked red and black cherries even some blue fruit; a whiff of classic Cali sun baked earth alongside some forest floor and sanguine elements that is where I would blind guess williamette valley. Has also developed interesting tertiary elements: shiitake mushrooms and aged soy sauce. Mouth coating while remaining refreshing, but def a dense full bodied Pinot that would be hard to call “ Burgundian” with the possible exception of some bigger red clay savigny le beaunes), but it is a great representation of its terroir and a deep contemplative wine. Still finishes with drying tannins and refreshing med / med + acidity that denotes longer term aging potential. Drinking very well and has structure to keep going although I’m curious to see how tertiary it gets and how well unthreatening holds. — 2 years ago

Willamette Valley Chardonnay 2015

Fantastic Chardonnay. Buttery, but not overly so. Pairs well with food, or is delicious on its own. — 7 months ago

Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Corvina Blend

Excellent Ripasso. Almost as intense as an Amarone but mor elegant and great depth. Spicy, earthy edge with a dry finish made it a great experience. — 9 months ago

Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018

The winemaker for PG has referred to the 2018 vintage as the best raw material they’ve ever seen. With the gravitas of this producer and their previous work at Torii Mor & other places, that’s high praise. If this entry level cuvée is a good indicator, then look out. Great power & finesse already and a simply enchanting nose. Few producers cover Oregon as completely as Patricia Green and you can taste the deft hand behind this vintage and bottling. Get some. — 2 years ago
