YIKES! I definitely wasn’t expecting this. Positively explosive right out of the bottle. Power, minerality, enough acidity to remove two layers of enamel... but wow...the weight, the ripe juicy pear, honey-crisp, and musk melon fruit rolls over your tongue like Patton through Germany! The wine demands your attention—I involuntarily sneezed...but I wanted another mouthful...I needed another mouthful. This wine is far, far too young... but it’s simply brilliant...and will be for years. I can’t believe this is “lowly” Pinot Blanc.. and I can’t believe it’s from Oregon. Well done, Kelley! — 9 days ago
11’Colgin Cellars Tychson Hill Vineyard. Located just north of Saint Helena. Not that far from Grace family Vineyards.
Tightly wound straight out of the bottle. Decanted for 90 minutes. Certainly has made a world of difference.
Still full-bodied & depth, bursting with dark fruit, licorice flavor’s, back by nice floral notes, polished tannins. Slightly backwards!?! Last time I had this was five years ago & it wasn’t open for business. Now it’s screaming drink me. — 14 days ago
Wow. I’m kinda blown away here. This stuff is awesome. Tastes like it’s straight out of Europe. One of the best American gewurz I’ve had. Slightly viscous. Pears, baking spice, maybe a touch of melon. Finishes w some tobacco notes. And nutmeg. Only 147 cars so it’s made w love and care. Wish I had more. — 8 days ago
LOVE Just Because - Southhold Farm + Cellar 2019 Dolcetto Texas Hill Country
Prominent rosy floral nose. Acid and tannins. Not at all sweet. Cherries, melon, tannins and earthy stems. A little bit of cedar and meaty notes. Flavors unfold gradually on the tongue as you sip and savor. Beautiful translucent light ruby color. Slightly cloudy, but NOT inky or opaque. Tasty. The sharp acidity paired well with a spicy fresh homemade pizza. Not gulpable - makes you drink it slow, enjoy all the flavors. — 15 days ago
Awesome dark red spicy and fruity Texas Hill Country red wine blend. Great wine — 3 days ago
Good to drink, does make my teeth purple though before a glass is done. Good flavor — 9 days ago
I over chilled this, hence the nose is compressed, although butterscotch is prominent.. Palate is generous, while medium-bodied. A subtle presentation of stone fruits leads into coconut and spice. Finishes with delicate acidity. Consume this vintage now.
