D2 Columbia Valley Merlot Blend 2021

Another amazing D2. Starts off with the richness of the Merlot followed by some tannins from the Cabernet Sauvignon. — 5 days ago

Cayuse Vineyards

Cailloux Vineyard Syrah 2017

Needs a bit of air upon opening to blow off the reductive edge.
Shows juicy, ripe, creamy blueberry with a bit of toasted and a fresh, mineral streak.
The magic happens on the palate - brilliant energy & depth. Great, pure, juicy, fresh blueberries with rocky minerality. Sappy, velvety tannins, vibrant acidity, so fresh.
This is brilliant stuff - complex, elegant, quite serious. And so drinkable. .

The Beaux Frères Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

2012 | Pinot Noir
Beaux Frères; Beaux Frères Vineyard (Estate)
Ribbon Ridge; Willamette Valley, OR, USA
(93-95; Drink 2027-37)

Delayed 2023 Thanksgiving with the extended family.

Much to look forward to here, all the B-F traits to love, strawberry, black raspberry, plum, white pepper, still bold and wanting several more years to really enter the zone for my palate.
The 2004 vintage is drinking perfectly now, a respectable presentation of the AVA. I can't wait for this to catch up.

Quilceda Creek

CVR Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2021

Coravin first glass. Very intense, lot of oak right off the bat. Too much. Tried a 4 hr decant on second night, tannin much more mellow, but oak still not fully integrated. Quality but needs more time — a month ago
