Dalla Valle Vineyards

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

1.5 hour decant(lots of cloudy sediment). A breathtaking dark purple color. On the nose: subtle notes of black fruit, floral, crushed rocks, vanilla, iron, metallic. Taste: fresh, rich, creamy wine with blackberry, dark cherry, smoke, pine tree, and a raspberry/cedar/slightly minty long finish. Tannins resolved now and the wine seems to be at its peak ready to go a number of more years. Pop one if you got em! — 4 hours ago

Giacomo Conterno

Francia Barolo Nebbiolo 2009

This is serious Barolo at its plateau. Monfortino was not produced in 2009 so the fruit went into cascina francia. It added weight and complexity. Tar, black fruits, peppery. Long burn, outstanding. — 6 days ago

Domaine Serene

Yamhill Cuvée Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2015

Presents with a beautiful translucent dark ruby red with a clear rim. Medium bodied nice long finish. I am getting cranberries, cherries, rhubarb and wet leaves! Nice wine at 14.5 alc. No burn and going down like candy! A chill on this makes earthy characteristics shine! Opens sufficiently..45 min decant! — a day ago

Booker Vineyard

The Alchemist Syrah Blend 2009

Drinking absolutely perfectly right now. Had a tasting with Eric a few years back who said he prefers his wines within the first few years, but I have to say that virtually every Booker wine I’ve had (save for the whites and roses) have improved substantially with a few more years in the cellar. We last had this in 2015, and it is substantially better now. At this stage I don’t think it’s going to improve much going forward, but it is terrific right now (so drink ‘em if ya got ‘em!). — 12 days ago

I watched a virtual interview with him where he compared his wines against other high end wineries (SQN, Saxum, etc). He pointed out their use of whole cluster and said he doesn’t want to imitate them as he doesn’t want to compete against them (his friends). Because of that, he goes to a different style (which normally allows it to be more accessible at a younger age). We all have our own preferences, but I thought that was a unique standpoint, and I respected it.

@Shay A, totally agree with you. What impresses me about Eric’s wines is that they are terrific across a wide window. That’s rare.

@Jim McCusker : Good point. I haven’t tried all of Booker’s wines, but whenever I have, they’ve been consistently good (sometimes really good) and that’s certainly rare. I have a 2017 Tempranillo I’m very excited to try at some point.
