Gorgeous melange of mixed berry, purple flowers with a zingy cranberry tang. Throw some fresh, dark soil in the mix for a bit of crunch and some deeper, darker notes and you've got a winner. Elegant, charismatic, with just a lick of acidity. Mandatory drinking. — 6 days ago
Wine 64 recommended, needed a post Covid pickup, for me Ch P is bit like marmite love it or hate it. 2016 a superb vintage for Bordeaux, at early stages superb, soft with a bit of tannin, cherry, plums, tabac, licorice. As evening progressed it became quite tart l, didn't reveal itself, or get better and better to the end. — a month ago
Quite dense crimson in colour for its age. Notes of Menthol/Eucalyptus and aniseed typical of Wendouree. A full bodied palate- earthy, berry, mineral with a tarry note. Might be a 19 year old wine but there is so much latent energy and power it will go on for some years yet. I will drink my last one in 2 to 3 years and if I have the willpower should be 4 to 5 years. Will go the distance. — a month ago
A beautiful, cool early Autumn evening, relaxing by a fire in the chiminea.
100% Pinot Noir, Disgorged February 2019.
Words escape me... Just wow!
(Notes later, I promise)
24 Hour Update:
Nose has yeasted dough, flat seltzer, limestone infused apple juice, hard crusted bread, oxidized red apple peel and bruised yellow apple.
Palate has tart yellow apple, saline puff pastry, faint lemon juice, limestone infused water, lemon zest with balanced acidity and a long, long finish. Outstanding.
The P-F wines always need a minimum of 24H open, 48H really if you have patience because then they open to just the most beautiful Champagne you've ever paid under $100 for, every time. No fear, the bubbles will wait over 48H so plan ahead for maximum enjoyment. — 20 days ago
2017 Vintage. 15.7% Alcohol. Santa Maria Pinot Noir done like a huge Syrah! Monster fruit and size with balanced acidity. Only got better as it breathed. Not the French burgundy style at all, but much more fun. Bravo Russell P. From for doing your own style. — a month ago
