Meiomi Méthode Champenoise Chardonnay - Pinot Noir Blend

Very solid bubbly at the under $20 price. Medium bubbles w a nice mousse. A touch of grassiness and a touch of dry and grassy flavors. I’m not getting the sweetness people have commented on. Nice stuff. I’d go w Roederer over this in a heartbeat at same price but this is intriguing. Also made a great French 75 after a glass by itself. — 16 days ago

Anderson Valley Estate Bottled Dry Gewürtztraminer 2016

Pale white, very good clarity. Floral, almond and wood notes in nose. Dry, honey, spice and citrus flavors with great length, almost nutty, with crisp finish, tartaric acid dominant with a touch of malic and citric. Moderate skin astringency. Slightly bitter aftertaste with malic-citric dominant. Super wine. 2534 cases produced. Tasting notes from their website note importance of sur lie aging and trellising with increased shade to improve development of varietal aromatics in juice. — 9 days ago

9.1

Anderson Valley - a lighter Pinot Noir - on the palate & alc at 13.1% This wine begs to be served with food and is wonderful with my hamburger and gnocchi. Light garnet color with a clear edge tells me i opened this too soon. Delightful, still. — 6 hours ago

Donum Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

9.2

Love the work that the winemaker does, but this was my first Cattleya. Lifted profile with a touch of spice...assuming some whole cluster usage. Perfumed potpourri, spicy red fruits, and black cherry skin on the nose. Medium acidity with stemmy/herbaceous notes alongside violets, more black cherries, underripe plum and peppercorn. — 4 days ago

@Bryan Kesting : Probably right up your alley. Not quite as herbal or lean as Oregon, but certainly not a ripe or extracted Pinot either.

@Shay A : I don’t see them in Missouri. Their Syrahs get the best reviews of all their wines.

Radio-Coteau

Savoy Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

Medium-gold w/flecks of green in the glass. Nice weight in the mouth, ripe pear and hints of toast on the nose. Balanced acid/fruit with no noticeable heat or bitterness. Great food accompaniment. Stylish and focused... someone made some nice choices in the vineyard and winery. I don’t think these guys get their just dues. — 3 days ago

"Les Voisins" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2012

Colour of bright light ruby. Smoky and varnishy red fruits: red currant and red cherry on the nose. The palate is light to medium weight with medium intensity. A little noticeable oak on the palate but not intrusive. With time in decanter the nose developed a foresty complexity - a beautiful floral sappy perfume. This is why we love Pinot Noir. I have had Australian Pinot Noirs similar to this - reminiscent of Mornington Peninsula IMO. — 9 days ago

Melville

Estate Fox Block Nine Pinot Noir 2014

Tried a Sample and bought a bottle. In 1989, Melville Vineyards, was founded in Sonoma, where Ron Melville grew high quality, Chard, Merlot, and Cab Sauv. In 1996, Ron's desire to grow Pinot Noir brought Melville Vineyards to Lompoc's Sta. Rita Hills, in Santa Barbara County. Ruby with aromas of sweet red fruits and vivid spice. Flavors of raspberry and strawberry, currant like, adding cinnamon and leathery notes. Fine tannins, lingering ending with nice mouthfeel bringing back fruit and subtle spice. Nice! — 7 days ago
