Estate Dopp Creek Pinot Noir 2017

On this Tuesday night I have opened the 2017 Colene Clemens Dopp Creek Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley.

On the palate there is cherry, raspberry, a funk note, cinnamon, baking spice, rose petals and wet leaves.

On the palate there is cherry, raspberry, cranberry, mushroom, smoky oak and crushed gravel

This wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity and medium + refined smooth tannins that leads to a long fruity finish. Thanksgiving is upon us and we all have a lot to be thankful for. Please over this holiday be safe and enjoy your families. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Good choice. I got a couple of these tucked away aging, though likely a different vintage.

Schlossgut Diel

Burg Layer Schlossberg Riesling Kabinett 2018

Brief notes from the VDP auctions, so take this with a grain of salt. Classic kabi and one of my favourites this auction. Juicy yellow stone fruits, herbs, racy acidity, impressive length. Very elegant.

NB: Kabi's from this set of auctions have been somewhat disappointing (looking at you Egon), but surprisingly, the Bad Krueznach auction delivered on some really classic and delicious kabi's, most of which went for reasonable prices. This kabi, the Goldloch from Joh. Bapt. Schafer (best value buy imo), the Kirchspiel from Groebe, Kai Schatzel's Pettenthal, and of course, the Keller Schubertslay. From the Mosel, I only really enjoyed the kabi's from Fritz Haag, Clemens Busch, and Grunhaus, but I felt they were playing on a lower level. Would be good to taste all these together again to compare.

@George Doolan The Schafer kabi's awesome, but like last year... Weak prices. He needs to up his PR game 🤣

Very nice mouthfeel and just slightly off-dry. A well-rounded Riesling. This was my first taste from this producer. — 2 months ago

Mosel Kabinett Trocken Riesling

Punches wayyyy over it’s weight. Layers of light spring flowers, zingy green apple acidity, stony wet river rock texture. Am I a Riesling person now?! — 3 months ago

Château Rieussec

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1983

Tasted blind. Dark gold. Sweet and angular nose. High pitched. Notes of cooked sugar, burnt orange, tan spices. Lots of fruit and acidity in the mouth. Has decent power. Finish is a bit thin. Guessed 83 Clemens. Great finish to a spectacular lineup. — 3 months ago
