Savage Grace

Boushey Vineyard Côt 2017

Dineen Vineyard, Rattlesnake Hills. This is a lighter style of Malbec fermented with native yeast, whole clusters. 11.2% alc/vol. Purple, moderately extracted pigment, very good clarity. Butter, tobacco and red fruit aromas initially. Raspberry and black currant flavors with length and a bit of cherry, moderate seed bitterness and skin astringency. Needs time to open. Acidity is light, almost rounded mouthfeel, fruit with length, but you need to give those tannins about 30 minutes minimum to dampen down. The carbonic maceration character comes out after 45 minutes, creating a mild Kool-Aid effect on some of the fruit flavors. (The effect is much nicer and more natural, of course, than those artificial flavors in Kool-Aid). A nice red for any occasion except a steak, in which case go for a full power Malbec. — 2 days ago

Grace Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

The ‘Grace Vineyard’ Pinot Noir is a barrel selection from this exceptional site in the Dundee Hills AVA. The aromas are intoxicating right out of the gate, as this warm vintage Pinot Noir is not needing a long decant. Rose water, ripe red plums, strawberry puree and guava aromas all combine with lovely earthy and wet rock nuances that all are woven together in the beautifully glass. Exuding sheer class on the palate, this gorgoeus Pinot Noir slowly unveils ripe red fruits that mingle with minerals, potpourri, exotic spices and shades of wild blackberry jam. The silky texture entices and adds to this wonderful drinking experience. Fantastic in its youth, the Grace Vineyard Pinot Noir will shows wonderful promise for an exceedingly long evoloution ahead.
