Cuvée DD Sonoma County Pinot Noir 2000

This Cali Pinot from the Sonoma Coast still is delivering fresh fruit and tons of aromatics on the nose. A deep cherry color still shows after 19 years in captivity. A bit cloudy however. Firm tannins still persist but they compliment as does a fresh bouquet of cherries , strawberry, blackberry, wrapped in a layer of leather, coffee and red licorice. Nice effort — 6 months ago

@David L I had some Kalin chards from the 80s recently and they were (2/3) still going strong. The Vineyard for this Kalin chard is right down the street from me but they have no winery. Lucky enough, the upscale Chinese restaurant downtown has the Kalin wines by the glass all the time.

Frozen in time, makes me wonder if current white burgundies will have the same potential as this stuff. — 5 months ago

Terry's a singular master, IMHO. What would be amazing is to collate the accolades for his wines from his peers, who surely recognize his sublime talent. John Gilman might be the guy to make that happen.

The Monkey White Rhone Blend 2010

This and the fait main needed air! 2nd day after corking it yesterday. Much improved. The kalin wines were done-zo today. Great yesterday though. This has the same color as those 2001 kalins. — 2 years ago
