translucent garnet, watery rim; aromatics develop slowly, wild berries, dried cranberry, orange peel, mushrooms, hints of pine needles; light to medium body, dry, medium+ acidity, light tannin, 12.6% ABV; aged 16 months in 30% new French oak; a respectable and balanced wine from the rainy and uneven 2013 vintage — 5 days ago
Leading a tasting for some hotel guests. Different styles of Pinot Noir from around the world, starting with our own west coast. This wine features a core of explosive red fruits that define west coast Pinot making. Rich clove and and oak add a savoriness that helps to balance the wine. — 3 days ago
This developed positively from previous tastings here on Delectable. My brief notes - Liquorice; more savoury than fruit driven - Bacon, Charcuterie, spicy notes on the nose and medium weight palate. Some pepper. Very Northern Rhone in style. Certainly built for the long haul. I have 2 left - next in 2024. — 2 days ago
At first it taste like any other higher end natty red wine. I would have believed it was Carignan or Pais no problem. But with air things came together and it’s started to actually taste like Gamay, with sweet red berries, pink peppercorn, and woodsy earth. High acid, long finish. Good, but not great. — 5 hours ago
This 2012 is delicious it has a lot of dark red fruit and dark black fruit that’s with cherries so silky tannins and it’s just lovely to drink once it opens up there’s a little bit more tar and a little more mushrooms so I’d recommend if you have a 2012 vintage and your seller drink now or forever hold your peace￼￼ — a day ago
Pommard? Nope, Oregon.
N: lots of brown spice, Rhubarb, walks in the woods over fall leaves, brown sugar, a bit of pepper. You could huff this a longgg time.
P: Luscious going in, Big bright cherries and mineral,sapid, really sticky but not sweet, nice acidity, tuck some away if ya got.,Should be an ager. Better on day 2, more fruits, less cinnamon on the nose.

Really good Chardonnay that doesn't go straight down the trodden Chardonnay path. In fact, my take is Koosah has more in common with something like Gruner. Subtle, delicate, distinct, but spicy. Just a little kick. Silver green with a yellow glow. Chartreuse. White pepper, cut grass, pear, violet. Creamy, lean texture, and zippy acid. — 15 days ago
