Tail Feathers Rogue Valley Viognier Muscat Riesling 2019

Solid summer white. 9.5 if MS were rating. Her fave, and I have to get her permission to pour one if our guests are deemed worthy. — 2 months ago

@Shay A - realized we were 3-4 months past the normal release date so reached out for info. Got a note back from Celia that there is no 2020 as the crop was destroyed by the So. Oregon wildfires. Sad news.

@Steve Anderson : Especially sad because there was no 2018 due to fires as well.

This was my contribution for a 10-yr retrospective of Napa cab with a local group. All wines (16 of them) were tasted blind. Others of note were Cardinale, Larkmead, Bryant Family, Vineyard 29, Corra and Jacquelyn To-Kalon.

My first experience with this wine, and when I acquired it, I wasn’t aware it was a 100 pointer. I’ve had many Hall wines but this is definitely their most structured wine. It’s fruit forward but in no way close to their other offerings. At 100% cab, it drinks like it. I let this breathe from bottle for about 2hrs before it was thrown in a decanter for another 2-3hrs and consumed. I had a splash at pop and it was crazy coiled, underripe and dusty. When I came back to it later (albeit blind, so I’m looking at my notes), it sported dark fruit on both the nose and the palate. Dark cocoa dipped black cherries, ripe blueberries and blackberries, as well as cassis and espresso aromatically. There was also a bit of a lavender/floral note that gave it a unique quality. On the palate, it eventually smoothed out beautifully, but was powerful the entire time. Dense and rich with added notes of fig, baking spices, and cocoa dusted fruits. One of those wines that makes you think overpowering, but then dials it down to silk on the finish. I think this is just entering a prime drinking window. Bummer I don’t have more.

Testament to Celia and just like the corra!! So much voluptuous fruit and acid. Carrying itself well now wih loads of berry and wood complexity. Buying the rest... — 7 years ago
