One of my favorite rose's — 9 days ago
Likely my first ever domestic Gamay. Very pretty and very serious nose of light yet intense mid season cherry fruit. Lots of earth and very complex. Lots of aromas to unfurl. Very very deep and layered. What a palate. More Côte de Brouilly than Fleurie. It’s a beast. Such sappy fruit and ridiculous tiny berry fruit intensity. Long, grippy and sappy. Wow, really long. Deep, layered and long with terrific structure. Amazingly pure cherry fruit that is perfectly ripe and fresh. Really terrific freshness here. Impressive inner mouth florals and a deep structure to age many years and it needs maybe 3-4. Very impressive. After 5-6 hours of air the nose is smokey complexity. More gamey, more feral, palate is more together. Balance on this is extraordinary. What a wine. — 12 days ago
Insanely good beer. Takes me directly outside. So much good malt flavor but just subtle hop characteristic make this so good. Best American pils I’ve ever had and maybe if all. — 6 days ago
Bought at the Vineyard. Drank with Easter Brunch with D. Delicious. Easy drinking. Darker tone, with definite taste of rose - with cab influences — 21 days ago
3 pack terroir series buy from Cristom- McMinnville, Dundee Hills, and Eola-Amity Hills. I wish i could open all three of these at once. Classic bright cherry, medium acid, light wine- I think this is the highest elevation of the three. Cellar would do it justice tho it’s real nice now. — a month ago
@Delectable Wine this is Havlin Vineyard Pinot Noir.
Nose is is mid season cherries, loads of minerals, spice and earth, slightly grapey. Palate is dense and has awesome structure and grip. Sour Cherry fruit and lovely finesse and purity. Really great fruit presence. This is very serious wine. Need air but it’s all there. What freshness and barely sweet sour cherry fruit. Has a Côte de Beaune vibe. Serious fruit depth and really really great purity. Long. Brilliant wine. This is as red fruited as it gets. Just stuff with complex and thick fruit. Love it. — 12 days ago
Had a bottle of 2010 last night with my wild salmon. Beautiful light color and very dry taste. Has matured very well — 9 days ago
Made in a juicy and extracted style (a bit less my jam, but fans of this style should seek this out) Juicy cranberries and plums are supported by a ton of spice, earth, and tobacco, with some minerality underneath. — 15 days ago
On this Saturday night I have opened the 2012 Bethel Heights Vineyard Estate Pinot Noir from Eola-Amity Hills Salem, Oregon.
On the nose there is cherry, black raspberry, plum, funk, vanilla, white pepper, light oak and dry earth.
On the palate there is tart cherry, raspberry, cranberry, clove, baking spice, minerality and damp earth.
This wine is medium bodied that has good complexity with medium acidity and medium fine tannins that moves seamlessly into a medium to long fresh fruit finish. Please have a wonderful safe and healthy Memorial Day weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 4 days ago
