Kiser En Haut Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2006

The first bottle I had seemed a bit flabby it this couldn’t be further from that. Tightly wound but explosive nose with strawberries, raspberries and wild berries framed by dusty earth, fresh leather, sandalwood and dried spices along with a grilled meat note. Palate is energetic and cooked with a cayenne note throughout and still a good bit of juiciness. Finishes with a very spicy note as well with completely intact structure and good acidity. It’s compact and giving. The last bottle felt end-of-life. This one feels like a beginning... — a day ago

Savoy Vineyard Pinot Noir 2010

Ripe, rich, rearing to go with Cajun seafood in New Orleans. Dark/black fruited goodness on a medium-weight mouthfeel... silky smooth with no noticeable tannins, but laudable acid/fruit balance. Reminds me of just how great Anderson Valley Pinots are with a hint of age. Great with blackened anything! — 6 days ago

Was cool to see this comparison. The Wolf Gang Puck has less sugar in the dosage. Technically an extra brut — 14 days ago

Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2013

Crystal cherry and in inner sweetness. Quite good, I think. But served way too warm that it wasn’t a pleasant experience. At the National Arts Club in NYC. — 15 days ago

Today was my annual hosting of the Wednesday Wine Committee. There was 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert, all provided by me. Tasted blind, as always.

Copying my note from the ‘07 vintage as the wines are near identical. I will say that I didn’t get as much yeast out of the ‘09 as I did the ‘07, but it’s hard to know if it was simply due to age. I’ll hold back a bottle or two for a few years and revisit then.

Next to Ultramarine and the Reserve Schramsberg Sparklers, this is one of the best domestic Sparklers I’ve had, especially at the price ($50). Nose was grilled honeycomb, baked yeast and a small bit of limestone. Extremely creamy on the front palate...bubbles were so incredibly tiny. Multiple bubble strings. Wonderful lemon bread palate, with a crisp, chalky finish highlighted by grilled pineapple. There seemed to be more green apple notes here compared to the ‘07 vintage, but may be due to youth. This is an excellent US version of champagne.

Donnelly Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir 2010

Very nice with some simple grilled meats off the barby. Great red cherry fruit (maybe a hint of pomegranate) and a savory component that made for a great pairing. — 10 days ago
