La Chapelle Hermitage Syrah 2006

Wine of the night, of course. 2-hr decant, could have gone for more. Opened slowly and we reveled in its charms. Classic Hermitage profile, roast meat, iron-rich (liver), olives, soy sauce, citrus peel. Multifaceted. Succulent nose. Delicious right now but could go for a while. Brilliant stuff. — 14 days ago

Ross Station Estate Chardonnay 2016

16’ Paul Hobbs Ross Station Chardonnay. Throw this into a decanter for an hour. Certainly won’t hurt it
Bright golden color. Nose smells like honeycomb, crushed rock. Palate- apricot, peach, toasted hazelnut. Medium to full-bodied & intensely flavorful in the mouth, it's balanced by very juicy acidity. Nicely made Chardonnay.

Azana Vineyard Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir 2015

A little tight at first, but then with air the nose shows dark cherry, birch root (think “birch beer”), moist forest soil, autumn spice, crushed rock. Very nuanced. Intense and quite linear in the mouth. Cherry syrup extract on a savory bed. Bone dry. Long finish has a pleasant slight peppery note at the end. Subtle and well done. — 17 days ago

Domaine Mule Blanche Crozes-Hermitage Syrah

2017 vintage. I am less familiar with Jaboulet's whites, but this is excellent. Hard to find the right information on this wine, apparently a 50/50 Marsanne Roussanne blend. The back label states it's whole clusters fermented partially in egg-shaped concrete vats, whereas some critics mention wood-fermentation. In any case the wine is drop-dead gorgeous. Captivating nose with ripe yellow prunes, flowers and brioche. Concentrated with layers of white stone fruit and more exotic hints of pineapple, fresh herbs and an impressively long aftertaste. They say wines reflect the owner/winemaker. In this case I believe Caroline Frey can live with the adjectives "intense", "complex" and "graceful". Well worth the price tag — 9 days ago

Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2016

Nice, easy drinking Pinot. Started off thin and a bit dusty, but the fruit started to shine through after a 1 hour decant. No food pairing required - solid. — 23 days ago

Domaine des Terres Dorées (Jean-Paul Brun)

Morgon Gamay 2018

Intensely fruity, charming nose. Confirmed on the palate with notes of ripe strawberries, cherries, floral notes of roses and slightly peppery. Little notes of aging, just the fruit well worked with little addition of sulfur. Beautiful youthful ardor that will certainly age wonderfully.

Nez charmeur intensément fruité. Confirmé en bouche avec des notes de fraise, cerise bien mûres, des notes florales de roses et légèrement poivrées. Peu de note d’élevage, juste le fruit bien travaillé avec peu d’ajout de souffre. Belle fougue de jeunesse qui vieillira certainement à merveille.
