Jessie James Vineyard Pinot Noir 2021

Lyle Fass
9.7

Blackberry, blackberry coulis, dark cherry, intense florals. Violets. So gorgeous. Stunning nose. 9.7 nose. So fresh and elegant with terrific acidity. So complex and engaging. Super young but man oh man what potential. Super complex finish. Inner mouth aromas. Terrific inner mouth aromas. Really engaging mid palate. Spicey, structured and fresh. So so long. Acid is on point. Wait 5-7 years. Really opens up on day 2. Creamy mid palate but still so much tension. Beautiful finesse. Best wine Evan has ever made. Almost 9.7. Nose is so complex with unreal forest/herbal/spice elements. Gorgeous Black cherry. So vivid. Palate is so focused and rich get tempered and restrained. Extraordinary fruit quality. This is a 9.7. — 17 days ago

Ceritas

Peter Martin Ray Vineyard Chardonnay

Buttercup gold core with light green tones to the edges, and a medium body with nice long legs. The nose is reminiscent of salt air, with apricot pastry and notes of florals, maybe orange or lemon blossom, layered beneath. The salinity is prominent on the palate, but fades in the middle, revealing green figs, cumquat, apricot, some vegetal notes, almost dry wood like, with definitely some lightly present oak, but a silky, glazed pastry like finish that lasts and lasts. A beautiful and restrained representation that pretty much could be old world if you weren’t paying attention. — 15 hours ago

Vorgeschmack Red Zweigelt Pinot Noir 2021

Per Bianca of PBB: It's dry with really lovely fruit notes like blackberries and black cherry, supplemented by notes of earthy mushrooms and subtle spices. It's super balanced and would go great with any chicken or even duck dishes, and mushroom based dishes, too. — a month ago
