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! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 12 days ago
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. — 2 months ago

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
