Pop and pour. I've found significant variation in perceived brett on Cameron wines from vintage to vintage and, frankly, from cuvee to cuvee. I adore these wines, and this bottle is no exception. A touch of reduction and some.bretty funk, but the brett blew off with 30 min of air. On the nose: pure sweet strawberry and raspberry, spice, soft vanilla, pepper...To be honest, this bottle showed better than the 18 Reserve and closer to the 18 Clos Electrique in spirit, at least aromatically. On the palate: fantastic density and good acid, loads of wild strawberry, soft leafy notes and soft tannin on the finish. This is downright excellent, and has forced me to revise my views on the 2018 OR vintage (speaking in broad strokes, I've far preferred 15 and 17 vintages to 18, until this bottle and the Hundred Suns Bednarik I had recently). — 16 days ago
The weekend has arrived and I have opened the 2018 Stoller Family Estate Pinot Noir. This wine is from the Dundee Hills of the Willamette Valley in Oregon.
The nose has notes of cherry, strawberry, cranberries, rose petals, mushrooms and earth.
On the palate there is beautiful red fruit, cherry, cranberry, strawberry, spice, cola, vanilla, mushroom, a touch of oak and good earthiness.
This wine is medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel, medium acidity and medium fine sandpaper tannins that seamlessly moves into a long red fruit and light earyh finsh. I hope everyone has a beautiful weekend and please stay safe and continued health. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 22 days ago
Crazy perfume on this. So so floral with masses of ripe black raspberry and roses, as well as peony, lavender and violet. Tart red and purple fruits gradually build on the palate. Citrus zest, spice and salty clay minerals linger on the tongue. Seamless, vibrant, and still tastes really young.
Enjoyed every drop of this bottle over a week. It is singing. — 15 days ago
Sooooo good. Unique. Light. Notably fruity finish, but in an interesting way. (My bottle is the 2019.) — a day ago
Lovely florals and subtle spice in the bouquet. On the palate those florals remained and delivered also bright red fruit and incense. Not overly complex in the estimations of my palate. But I got nice fresh red fruit and the brooding pathos of some floral and spice at the same time. That balance is a little tricky so worth a note. A concise finish with real subtle tannins. Overall quite pretty. — a day ago
Big dark fruit aromas, lots of acid up front... tart blackberries... a round body with chocolate notes, very mild tannins that linger. Bold and balance. — 3 hours ago
medium straw colored, watery rim; somewhat muted, lemon, green apple, beeswax, wet gravel; tart citrus, wet stone, a bit of lanolin on the finish; medium body, dry, medium acidity, 14.2% ABV; made from Dijon clone sourced from Dundee Hills, aged 13 months in 31% new French oak; still going strong at this point in its development — 25 days ago
