Maresh Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Smells like ripe blackberry bramble.
Tastes of the bramble as well. Cran Pom pops, and offers a very long lovely finish. Tart fruit with high acid lingers for a very long time.
A nice wine to enjoy the last of the summer days.

Your review reminded me of an older UK series "Last of the summer wine.". Nice memory as there were many beloved actors in the series. Cheers!🌻

"The Prospect" Sierra Madre Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

David T
9.4

This is a young wine that I opened last weekend and enjoyed but, had to seal it up and put back into storage until tonight. It’s a touch faded (10%) but, like all young wine, resilient.

The nose reveals, ripe & candied; blackberries, dark cherries, plum, well extracted pomegranate, the blue fruits he does so well and I love in Pinot, dry cranberries, poached strawberries, raspberries, beautiful layered baking spices, medium intensity dark spices, steeped fruit tea, red fruit cola, hints of dry crushed rocks, limestone, dark, blue, purple flowers with hints of lavender.

The body is full with a fair amount of tannin presence. Nicely knitted structure, tension, length and balance for such a young Pinot. Ripe & candied; blackberries, dark cherries, plum, well extracted pomegranate, the blue fruits he does so well and I love in Pinot, dry cranberries, poached strawberries, touch of cooked rhubarb, raspberries, beautiful layered baking spices, medium intensity dark spice with shades of palate heat, steeped fruit tea, red fruit cola, saline notes, dry herbs, menthol, eucalyptus, hints of dry crushed rocks, volcanic minerals, dry & moist clay, limestone, leathery, wood staves, amazing dark, blue, purple flowers with hints of lavender. The acidity is excellent. The ripe, elegant, balanced, polished finish is delicious and persists nicely for minutes.

Paul makes beautiful expressions of Pinot, Rhône styles & Chardonnay. If you have not had them, well worth your time & investment to seek out.

Photos of; his Sierra Madre Vineyard...netted to keep the birds from eating his fruit, fruit near harvest time, my picture meeting Paul for the first time last week weekend at a “Matter of Taste” in Napa last weekend and their barrel room.

Cuvée Paul Syrah Blend 2016

Original! Fine, round and harmonious. fresh black fruit flavors specific to Syrah. The addition of Vionier (white wine grape) brings greedy notes of pears, and compote, which admirably mixes with the woody oak barrel aging. I loved! — 12 days ago

We love this wine. Previous notes apply, with hints of petroleum on the noise. Palate is soft and round with a relaxed acid profile. Finishes with lanolin and moderate sweetness. Just about to pull the trigger on some more. — 13 days ago
