Wild Horse Valley, North Coast

Goldeneye (Duckhorn Vineyards)

Estate Grown Gowan Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir 2005

Nose has ripe blackberry, perfect black cherry, strawberry, tanned leather, moist chocolate cake, dry leaves and a touch of alcohol.

Palate has brown sugar dusted ripe strawberries, over-ripe black cherry, dehydrated strawberry, forest moss and moist soil; medium finish. Decanted 4H at the time of notes.

Paired with Taiwanese Five Spice Pork (Lu Rou Fan | 卤肉饭) over Jasmin rice with lightly fried eggs from our private egg factory in the backyard. Locally raised NY pork (Kinderhook Farm, Valatie, NY), Columbia Co. ❤️

Inaugural vintage. This was shortly after the time Duckhorn acquired Goldeneye and started a massive diversification program, isolating the vineyards into singular bottlings. For better or worse, we only lasted a few more years on vigorous collecting before withdrawal. Pricing was really getting detached from quality IMHO.

Roederer Estate

Estate Bottled Anderson Valley Brut Rosé Blend

This is as good as sparkling Rosé gets in California - certainly for the price point. 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay. Wonderful salmon-pink color with a delicious palate of cherry, apricot, musk melon and grapefruit peel. Beautiful balance of fruit and off-dry character. Shows the pure class of Anderson Valley. — 3 months ago

"Les Voisins" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2015

Very pleasing at this stage of maturity, dominated by brown tones of stems, forest floor and licorice root. The fruit shows a muted level of dark raspberry. A nice level of acidity brings it all together — 2 months ago
