North Coast Pinot Noir

Donum

East Slope Estate Grown Pinot Noir 2013

150 cases from this east sloping block on their Caneros estate.

Pop and pour. A wondrous medium tawny red color. On the nose: Beautiful expressive nose of cherry, wet tea leaves, strawberry, sandlewood, floral, spice, and vanilla tapioca. Taste: smooth, creamy polished medium plus body wine with easy cherry, orange peel, pine, raspberry, and a spicy herbal tea long finish. Cooler part of their estate and the most Burgundy style of the Donum wines. Cheers!

Brut Blanc de Noirs North Coast Sparkling Pinot Noir 2017

Very enjoyable. Toast on the nose that I wasn’t expecting for such a young sparkler. Lots of bubbles with honey and light citrus on the palate. Lingering finish with a little tang. Lovely. — a day ago

A favorite, domestic bottle in our house. If you ever see this in 1500ml, grab it. Like a fully different wine, in a great way!

Artesa

Los Carneros Pinot Noir 2017

Ruby with rich berry fruit, citrus and floral spice. On the palate, strawberry and cherry, tangy, with cola and cedar notes adding earthy tones. Bright acidity, soft expressive tannins, long finish ending with mineral and cedar spice. Very nice, drink now & over next 5 years. — 8 days ago

Wilde Farm

Donnelly Creek Vineyards Pinot Noir 2015

This is well-done in a Burgundian style. Nose has bright, sappy cherry fruit, a little stemmy in a good way, some very Burgundian wet earth. In the mouth it’s bone dry, with just-ripe cherry and earth flavors initially and then crushed rocks and savory tones carrying it through to the finish, which has a very slight bitter note (it works). Nice acids. Medium body. Tannins are there if you wait and look for them, but they’re close to resolved. — 14 days ago

From my cellar aka basement. When we built our “ new” house 21 years ago I never thought of a wine cellar. We did put in a 16 foot basement . It’s dark and cool . I spent a year with the architect and a year of construction .we love the place. I never thought of a wine cellar!! Put in special wiring for my stereo, house is heated by passive solar( no matter how cold if sun up it’s 80f) but no cellar. We even have a walled courtyard ( the wet garden) but no cellar . Hugh

Hyde Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

Last but not least! We made it to @patzhall for the final flight of the day. 🙌🙌

Featured in this picture are some wines from the ‘Sparkling & Still Wine Tasting Flight’ and the ‘Library Flight.’

I tried the Library Flight and found all of the wines to be richly concentrated, with strong fruit flavor and complexity from the winemaking process. 🍷

I enjoyed them all, but especially loved the 2012 Hyde Vineyard Pinot Noir, which had candied cherry, strawberry, raspberry jam notes alongside violet, crushed rose petals, fennel, anise, leather, nutmeg, vanilla, mushroom, and earth notes. It had a delightful complexity and long, elegant finish. 👏👏👏

Almost 30 miles today on bike (to be fair they were eBikes 😉) with three tastings along the way and we’re ready for bed 🛌 😌 Cheers 🥂
