Looney Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

Shay A
9.3

Not rich, not herbal, but a nice blend of the two aromatically. Tar, ripe black cherries, red plum, herbal twang and just a kiss of smoked game. Lively and acidic on the palate, even at 7yrs of age. Gained darker and more dense fruits as it opened, with added iron, tart red fruits and an herbal spice driven finish. Hardly any signs of age here, so no worries on holding. Still picking up some heat, so I’d imagine this has another 2-3yrs before it’s integrated at its peak! Still gaining steam! Impressive. Thank you for introducing me to this winery, @David L ! I need to seek out more OR Pinots! — 9 days ago

@Bryan Kesting : Give then a try. Definitely not as herbal or savory as Antica Terra, but also not a dense Cali Pinot. A nice blend of the two.

Sine Qua Non

Piranha Waterdance Syrah

This was stunning today; Elixir-esq concentration sporting deep bass notes, a plethora of vital high tones, some carbon, a little graphite and impeccable purity. It would have likely tasted delicious anywhere but to share it with the Krankl family and perfect gentleman turned SQN chevalier @Roman Sukley was an honour and a privilege. It was part of a diamond day and the summit of a 17 year pilgrimage that won’t be forgotten anytime soon. Thank you kindly Roman, Manfred, Elaine & August - 2014 — a month ago

Thanks @Bob McDonald - the trip has been incredible and we make our way through the Sta. Rita Hills up towards Napa to see some old friends today.

Birds of a feather @Fraser McKinley That 17 Grenache is destined for the SQN Hall of Fame, and the Graciano was a stand-out for me as well. Enjoy the rest of your trip and talk soon.

Archer's Edge Estates Pinot Noir 2011

A truly great Oregon Pinot! Very smooth medium bodied wine with low tannins and just a little earth. No alcohol bite- flavors of black plum and tabacco. The 2011 cellared really well. — 14 days ago

Rosé Pinot Noir 2017

Wow. Delicious, deep flavored rose. It light at all—drinks like a red wine w multiple layers of flavor. This is the style of rose’ I like. Similar to the archery summit, maybe a bit more depth. — a month ago
