A Day At The Vineyards

Where ya Pjs at? Pinot Gris 2021

R
10

This was such an interesting wine. The fact it is from white wines, and produce such a strong rose color is interesting. The start is strawberry and fresh, the end is funky and earthy. I bought a bottle from the restaurant I had it for the first time. — 5 days ago

Vie di Romans

Pierre Sauvignon 2018

Medium gold, explosive aromas of ripe pineapple , lychee, kumquat and green melon. The wine is rich, nearly viscus, and packing serious weight. Long, sweet but balanced, mid-palate. Close to over-the-top in richness, but the flavors carry the day. A long way from Sancerre, but a style and food-friendliness that I have to acknowledge. At times I wasn’t sure, but finished the bottle….. and smiled! — 3 days ago

La Spinetta

Langhe Nebbiolo 2019

Drank with Father’s Day dinner of pappardelle bolognese at Corbin & Sons. Nice fruit and complexity with a velvety finish and mild tannins. — 5 days ago

Tablas Creek Vineyard

Esprit de Tablas Mourvedre Blend 2019

Better on day two but probably needs more time in bottle. Cherry compote, baking spices, bitter chocolate, a bit of eucalyptus and pine, tannin and acidity on the finish. More tart cherries and spices at the end. — a day ago

McHenry Vineyard

Estate Bottled Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir 2019

Popped and poured; served with cedar plank salmon for Father’s Day. No formal notes but consistent with previous experiences. Bruised strawberry, cherry, pomegranate, mushroom, a kiss of baking spices and a touch of VA. Way more open for business than typical from McHenry at this stage, but the challenges of the vintage explain it all. Drink this vintage now. — 8 days ago

Rosenblum Cellars

Annette's Reserve Redwood Valley Zinfandel 2002

2002; Father's Day 2022
👃 Dried blackberries, dried blueberries, over-ripe black cherry, crushed dark chocolate | 👅 Black cherry & strawberry syrup reduction, over-ripe nectarine skin, dark chocolate sauce, light tar notes, acidity/tannins persists with a long, round finish. Satisfying.

Cork pulled for slow oxidation, 11H rest at time of notes.

The end of the line for our Annette's stock, starting life in our cellar as a 4-pack back in Nov. 2005 ($22.50), this has been an enjoyable run.
Paired to homemade chocolate lava cake. 🤤

A quick googling points to a sub AVA of Mendocino…. Too many AVA’s to keep up.

@Adam Beasley Likely the best offer in MO, good range of wines, all age-able, esp the Norton's. We've had them back into the early 80's and 🤯.

I would have never expected that. Going to pick some up. Thanks!

Wittmann

Brunnenhäuschen Großes Gewächs Riesling 2015

A very good Grosses Gewachs from Wittmann. Lovely aromatics of white flowers, under ripe nectarine and slatey minerals. The palate was light to medium weight but with with great length and precision. Stone fruit notes. Medium plus acidity which makes me think this has a number of years left. Finishes dry at 13% ABV but was expecting a more fulsome peachy palate. Not quite there for $133 AUD per bottle. More fulsome the following day. — 9 days ago
