Two Vintners

Stone Tree Vineyard Zinfandel 2016

Tasting a more recent vintage, 460 cases produced, 16.7% alc/vol (seriously?!) So how does it compare with previous vintages? Purple red, highly extracted pigment. Wood in nose, wood, black cherry and black currant in mouth initially. Letting it breathe... Mint and blackberry flavors emerge after 30 minutes, and there’s got to be some RS in this. Well made, balanced, surprisingly not hot or alcoholic (which explains the sweet fruitiness), slightly syrupy in mouthfeel. A really nice wine. Reminds me why, growing up, Zin was always my favorite. Moderate chewy tannins emerge after 60 minutes, but acceptably so; they later dissipate. Fresh fig and tar emerge after that, greatness! Makes me wonder if, with global warming, the future of Zinfandel is here in the Pacific Northwest — 2 days ago

Always one of the top Pinots in Germany. Gorgeous, haunting and complex nose of spice, tree bark, mid season cherries, cherry flower, mulberry, licorice, hint of oak. Gorgeous. Layered, haunting and just beautiful. Palate is mega juicy and so stunningly pure. Elegant and lithe with just stunningly refined tannins. What a finish. Amazing, depth, minerality and complexity. A little closed on the backend but will open as the night goes on. Wow. — 9 days ago

Iron Tree

Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Blend 2013

Label could use some work. Pretty basic as the kids might say. Nice rusty maroon in the glass. Aroma has a bit of rust on it too. It’s also showing a bit of mineral oil. Strange old world nose to this. Flavors are very dry and woodsy. Tastes of ‘old book’, both the pages and the leather bindings. This might be a bit cooked. Little linger of that oxidized flavor. But also holds a bit of roasted red pepper and plenty of black currant jam too. It’s lacking in depth, but it has some lovely Merlot character. Aged pretty well too. — 21 hours ago

2015 vintage. Fresh cherry, red plum, tree bark, loam, dried herb. Comes across a little hot, but maybe it's more of a structure thing. — 17 days ago

In the zone. Big time. Gorgeous nose or lemon/like rock candy and confectionary aromas. Superb minerals and terrific focus. Tree bark. Lemon and lime gum drop. Floral and sweet lemon. Focused and expansive. Juicy and clean. Lovely ripeness and tension. So pure and clean. Not particularly long but so clean and intense. — 13 days ago

Dalla Valle Vineyards

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

1.5 hour decant(lots of cloudy sediment). A breathtaking dark purple color. On the nose: subtle notes of black fruit, floral, crushed rocks, vanilla, iron, metallic. Taste: fresh, rich, creamy wine with blackberry, dark cherry, smoke, pine tree, and a raspberry/cedar/slightly minty long finish. Tannins resolved now and the wine seems to be at its peak ready to go a number of more years. Pop one if you got em! — 3 days ago
