The Cattle King Upland Vineyard Syrah 2015

9.5

This may be my favorite K wine to date. I double decanted this for about two hours and then consumed from bottle over the next three.

If I’m looking for a comparison, this reminded me of a Tensley Colson Ranch but with whole cluster/stem inclusion. Deep purple in the glass. There is a perfumed/fragrant nose of sweet fruit (rich and ripe black and blueberries) crusted with dark cocoa, then veers to the herbs de Provence and green/stemmy style. Absolutely gorgeous on the palate with a nervy mineral driven core of acidity. Violets, grilled dark fruits, mocha, and peppercorn covered black currant. Touch of salinity. Finish is really quite integrated already. This may be showing all its got at the moment (which is impressive) but I expect it will hang in this window another 3+yrs before the fruit/savory balance starts tipping toward mostly savory. Enjoy now!

Ripe and lush entrance. Star fruit, mango, key lime, damp slate, honeysuckle, Asian pear. Gorgeous acidity. Texture and length to spare. A truly fantastic Oregon Pinot Gris. — a month ago

Chardonnay 2020

Wine Advent(ure) #1. If you’re looking for a buttery, oaky Chardonnay, this is not it! It is, however, a crisp, mineral, stainless steel style that is quite nice with a long, dry finish. — 3 days ago
