Incredibly light - feels like it dissolves on the tongue. Dry but not too dry. Delicious. — 24 days ago
2018 open December 2021. This is a solid (a very solid, indeed!) Willamette Pinot. Nothing like this comes out of Burgundy, and the French are poorer for it. Raspberries and nettles on the nose, with bright red fruit on the front of the palate. The fruit immediately surrenders to a dense tannic structure. Slightly sour/mineral finish. It leaves a puckery aftertaste that I find a little off putting.
However, when it comes to tannins, this wine punches way above its weight. This is a tipple you can serve to your Cab bigot friends — but don’t show them the bottle! Tell them that it’s an interesting Red Mountain Cab that you found in Washington State. See how long you can fool them. On the other hand, if you’re a Pinot aficionado, this wine may just be a little too heavy for your tastes. Personally, I like my Pinots to be a little more delicate. I’m giving this a 9.0, because it’s a very good wine￼, But it’s a little rough around the edges.￼ I suspect it will age quite well, though. — 2 months ago

Just tasted new batch! Pompadour Brut Rosé celebrates the life and times of Madame de Pompadour (mistress of Louis XV) credited with introducing Champagne to the court. Blend of 58% Pinot Noir, 42% Chard, aromas of floral strawberry scents with yeasty notes on fine mousse and bubble flow. On the palate flavors of raspberry and strawberry with vanilla yeasty tones. Well balanced, long ending in true brut style, dry with yeasty mineral character. A joy to drink. Tasting Sample! — a month ago
2919 opened Dec 2021. Roses and salt on the nose. Red raspberries on the front with an undertone of gooseberries. Light tannic structure with a lot of herbal notes on the mid-palate. Short finish with some ocean sea notes, and it leaves a faint sourness on the front of tongue. — a month ago
