Gowan Creek Hillside Pinot Noir 2016

The 2016 ‘Gowan Creek Vineyard’ Pinot Noir is another gorgeous bottling from this storied estate in the Anderson Valley. This Anderson Valley Vineyard is known for its steady coastal fog and is planted to eight different clones of Pinot Noir. The wine opens with good range on the nose with milk chocolate and sassafras to wild blackberry cobbler and red currant with earthy undertones that all connect in the glass. The soft mouthfeel entices here as orange rind melds with red and dark berry flavors alongside shades of peat moss and exotic spices. This is seriously good now but will only build as it ages over the next ten to fifteen years. Give this a long decant prior to enjoying. Drink 2019-2033- 93

Kiser En Haut Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2006

Echoing my last notes with this bottle. Maybe the first was
just a miss. Drinking really fantastically, although I am not sure how long a
life it might have. Fruit is more red on the nose with hints of strawberry but becomes
more classic Anderson valley dark cherry with some black fruit, but also hints
of strawberry sneaking in. The sandalwood and spicy notes are dominant, and also
carry a pleasant medicinal herbaceous undertone. With time also reveals some
dark flowers, bay leaf. Solid structure with mostly resolved tannins but fulkly
intact with and good acidity. Structure di degrade a bit with air.

Smells good, rounded and fruity. Tastes smooth, medium light body, which is fine because its flavor is complex and well balanced. Not too sweet, not tart. Silky tannins, pretty clean finish. Had with turmeric curry sauce from uncle booms, sous vide then sliced and seared pork ribs, rice, and leftover beans and cauliflower (steamed). — 6 days ago

Demuth Vineyard Chardonnay 2015

One of those wines that still has me thinking about it hours after the last glass. This is 🔥. Not a connoisseur by any stretch, but reminded me of white burg a lot — 8 days ago
