Judge Family Vineyard Syrah 2017

An experience I've looked forward to each of the last four years, this is my first impression of the most recent release of Judge Family Vineyard Syrah from Christopher Tynan. Popped and poured, the 2017 vintage pours a deep purple color with an utterly opaque core. Medium+ viscosity with significant staining of the tears. The nose alone is spellbinding. Bursting with black and blue fruits; blackberries over blueberries over dark plums along with veritable fields of lavender. A deli case packed with saucisson encrusted with Herbs de Provence. There’s some rotundone and some very pretty hints of vanilla bean for good measure. It’s hard to imagine the palate being quite as exciting and yet, this wine keeps delivering more. The aforementioned fruit-set is confirmed and stuffs the mouth in beautifully ripened fruit. Again, the lavender and vanilla are well on display with some olive and black pepper in the mix too. The wine is bone dry with gritty tannins that I would place at medium+. The acid, which I would also place at medium+, acts as a bustier, giving everything a real proper and sexy lift. The finish is Ben-Hur in length and significance. Coming as no surprise, the 2017 is a worthy follow-up to the previous three vintages from this vineyard which, under the supervision of Tynan, has become for me, one of the greatest Syrahs from California. Better with some air, this can be enjoyed now but will be fabulous for years to come. My next bottle after 2027. — 4 months ago

Willamette Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Fun, lively acidity lead to tart green apple and stone fruits. It offers a floral bouquet. Bitter grapefruit comes out , as it warms. Nice minerality, and a persistent finish make this quite enjoyable. I’d buy it again 👍 — a month ago

Meleagris Gallopavo Vineyard Old Vines Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

1 hour decant(much fine/cloudy sediment). An astounding inky dark garnet color. On the nose: red and black fruit, perfumed floral notes, forest floor, little smoked meat, graphite. Taste: Great juice! Smooth, creamy, intense and concentrated mouth coating wine with blackberry/black cherry, oak, earth, campfire, and a cocoa pencil lead looonnng finish with a slight tannic kick. YUM!! these really need a good 10 years..think I should of decanted a little longer and looking forward how it evolves over the night. — 2 months ago
