Belle Glos

Meiomi Sunshine on Leith Pinot Noir 2016

Meiomi means "coast" in the language of the native, coastal dwelling Wappo and Yuki tribes. Sweet fruit aromas with floral scents. On the palate raspberry and strawberry flavors, almost jammy, lightly toasted vanilla oak notes with a touch of black pepper. Generous acidity with fine tannins, good balance on medium finish. Good value, drink now. Tasting Sample. — 17 days ago

Do Nothing Red 2017

💯% Mondeuse from the Willamette Valley. Pretty comfortable in saying that this is the only one that exists. This wine was just bottled and needs some time to settle into itself, don’t think it’s been released to the market yet but will sell out immediately. It’s an amazing food friendly, pairing wine. BlackBerry juice, maybe some trapped CO2, leads to really nice texture and a bit of grip. Endless possibilities of what this wine can be drank with at lunch or dinner. — 4 days ago

I read somewhere that “Charbono” in Cali is actually Mondeuse. But I have never heard of either being grown in Oregon.

@Tom Casagrande No sir. Charbono is believed to be Bonarda. Widely grown in Argentina. Originally called Douce Noir, it was originally Italian, then French.

Leviathan

California Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

Tonight to start the Fathers Day weekend off I have opened the 2013 Leviathan California Red Blend. 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Syrah, 24% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc. This is the 10th Anniversary wine from Andy Erickson the former winemaker of Screaming Eagle.

The nose is very expressive with notes of black cherry, blackberry jam, boysenberry, black currant, chocolate, pencil shavings, herbs and mint.

On the palate there is jammy dark fruit, black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, black currant, allspice, herbs, graphite and earth.

This is a full bodied wine with medium + acidity and medium + grippy chewy tannins that lead to a long fruit driven finish. Enjoy your Fathers Day weekend and do it safely. Nostrovia. 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Cultivate

Pinot Noir 2014

Color of clear light ruby with a touch of purple and brown note on the rim. Nose of nice berry notes, like a good Pinot can offer, spice, strength of alcohol and grassy note. Taste follows similar structures with nice acidity, berries, fresh juicy grapes, some bittersweet note, and some sweet note. Aftertaste is quite average. Overall, I think she is a nice Pinot for people who enjoy sweet and within the boundary flavors. — 4 days ago

Cashmere Cellars

Black Magic Alluring Dark California Red Blend 2015

Deep purple in color with a short purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, sweet cherry pie, wood, vanilla, licorice, light vegetables, chocolates, tobacco, beef jerky, earth, vinaigrette, spices and black pepper.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked strawberries, oak, licorice, cloves, chocolates, earth, vanilla, spices, alcohol, tobacco, light vegetables and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a great red blend from California. Well balanced with nice complexity and mouthfeel. The palate was much more interesting than the nose.


Peaking now, and good right out of the bottle, but much better after 2 hours when the tannins come in and bring in more structure. I had it last year, and now it's much better. The tannins calmed down and it is much more balanced.

Wine Enthusiasts 88 points.

A blend of Petite Sirah, Mourvedre, Syrah and Grenache. A yummy blend with a nice mouthfeel.

15% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$16.
