Stoller Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Second and last bottle of vintage. Previous notes hold, though I’d note more lactic character and skin astringency in the first hour. — a day ago

I’m no expert. Needs time to breathe, but this is rewarded in spades. Fruity flavor profile becomes obvious several hours after opening — 11 days ago

Napa Valley Fumé Blanc (Dry Sauvignon Blanc) 2016

Great white wine for warm days, clean and refreshing, lemon and herbal notes, oak influence is light and adds structure & depth in the background. Patio pounder which can stand up to a steak salad. Made with organic grapes. — 2 days ago

Panther Creek

Schindler Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Located in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA, the ‘Schindler Vineyard’ is a very small site planted to Pinot Noir and set on marine sedimentary soils. A light whiff of salinity runs through the nose with kirsch and peat moss aromas that all meld in the glass. The palate has good freshness and energy with bright reed fruits that dance with shades of blood orange and minerals. The seductive mineral and dark fruit driven finish lingers long on the palate. Enjoy this fantastic new bottling over the next decade or more. Drink 2019-2029- 92

Bloom's Field Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2013

Monthly WTF wine night with a theme of “something to impress”. As always, wines were tasted blind.

I really enjoyed this and I feel like it’s in a prime drinking window (though it can hold for a while). I called this whole cluster Oregon Pinot. Looked like Beaujolais in the glass...very bright raspberry color. Perfumed aromatics highlighting whole cluster stemmy-ness (100% whole cluster) with ripe raspberries and bing cherries. Nimble and acidic on the palate showing crunchy cranberry, juicy cherry, spiced fruit and cedar. Thanks,

Zwebner Estate Vineyard

35.6.18 Judean Mountains Red Blend 2015

This Grenache blend from Israel is very tasty. Showing red and black fruits with lots of vegetables, bell pepper, wet leaves, tobacco, dark coffee and earth notes.

Full-bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

Needs 90 minutes to open up properly.

A good food wine that will pair nicely with game meats. I paired it with cheeses and crackers.

The (high) alcohol is not noticeable any longer, so you better watch out 😃

A blend of 47% Grenache, 33% Carignan and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged for 12 months in oak barrels.

90 points.

15.5% alcohol by volume.

Big Table Farm

Laughing Pig Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

The 2018 ‘Laughing Pig’ Rose by Big Table Farm was aged in neutral oak barrels prior to being released in mid-April 2019. Showing off its rich, dark hue, the 2018 ‘Laughing Pig’ opens with serious aromatic range from shades of honeydew melon to citrus rind and copious ripe red fruits that all connect in the glass. The palate shows a silly texture and weight, yet retains a wonderful sense of elegance. Bright guava, nectarine, and cran-pomegranate with red cherry candy flavors collide with the bright sense of minerality. The exceedingly long finish accentuates this simply gorgeous new Rose. While delightful in its youth, this will cellar well for the next seven plus years. Drink 2019-2025- 93 — 17 days ago
