Tuesday's Child Pinot Noir Rose 2019

JKT
9.0

Cved 10/25/20. Deep color almost like a diluted red. Nose is closed off but good acidity and texture with long finish. More strawberries and red fruits and stones. Not quite as impressive as Monday’s Child at this point but still excellent. — 3 days ago

Cved 10/24/20. No duds yet! Nose like an excellent Pinot rose so gave provisional 9 but just an uplifting acidic complex lively palate and texture carrying through to a really long finish. Unbelievable. Upping to 9.1. — 4 days ago

Eola - Amity Hills Pinot Noir 2017

JKT
9.2

Cved 10/21/20. Beautiful light red color. Very lively elegant floral young red fruits yet stony notes that changed as I sniffed. A lean athletic elegant acidic texture that continues on to a super lengthy complex finish. Perhaps faded a bit over hours in glass. A young Gelsey Kirkland showing promise. What a wine to go with the Mimi Casteel philosophy and practice! With the effort to obtain from Morrell 65. Best New World Pinot yet, so distinct from the Burgs but equally compelling. Perhaps more so given the effort and youngling vines. One more intact bottle. Be interesting to see how it’ll age. Wow. Next day not much detectable in the empty glass unlike some others with lingering scents. — 7 days ago

Templeton Gap District Paso Robles Syrah

Black cherry compote, graphite, toffee & earthy spice notes. Something i can’t put my finger in that’s inbetween mint or eucalyptus clippings that were picked from the garden where you can still smell the soil. fine-grained tannins, heady acidity, and apologetically full-bodied. Someone seriously knows what they’re doing here — best syrah i’ve had all year by miles. — 10 days ago
