Bodegas Altanza

Lealtanza Rioja Tempranillo 2008

Black river rocks with a Luxardo cherry finish. Blackberry and snail shells with a raspberry sorbet on the riverbank nose. Satin finish, with a decadently ripe red plum that borders on cream. Fine strands of cedar, lingonberry and black currant reduction flood the culminative pronunciations. — 7 years ago

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

Garnet rim with a deep Ruby center. Classically Left Bank Bordeaux with dark fruit, green peppers, tobacco, gravel and pine on the nose, also displaying molasses, caramel, leather, gunpowder and riverbank. A touch of VA, seemed to be a bit more than an added complexity. Slightly underwhelming for a 1st Growth. — 5 years ago

Ripe cherries and riverbank. Amazingly fresh. — 5 years ago

Domaine de L'Idylle

Arbin Vin De Savoie Mondeuse Noir 2017

A lovely nose of lilacs growing on a riverbank, just about to bloom.

Tangy cherry, cranberry, white pepper, dark plum river stone. Light tannins wrap up the profile of this wine, as do the feathery tannins.

Marqués de Riscal

Herederos del Marques de Riscal Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2006

Amazingly complex wine. Medium Ruby ranging to a Garnet rim. Exploding out of the glass; cherries, strawberries, cacao, coffee, chocolate, hazelnut, gravel, brisket, pork belly with crackling, an intense sanguine nature, peonies, cardomun, riverbank, maple bacon, clove, numbing menthol, pepper. Truly amazing. Well structured! — 5 years ago

Domaine du Pélican

Trois Cépages Arbois Pinot Noir Blend 2016

Nose is super earthy, sweet-topsoil, pasture, riverbank clay. Soft red raspberry and alpine strawberry on the palate with a thoughtful smooth creek-bed pebble quality. Very pleasant and very versatile! — 5 years ago

Evening Land Vineyards

Seven Springs Vineyard Gamay Noir 2015

Awesome Gamay from Seven Springs, by way of Evening Land. Has all the great qualities I love about good cru Beaujolais yet doesn't seem like it's trying to be *be*Beaujolais and it certainly reflects its Oregon origins and the warmer vintage with its ripe fruit and (relative) roundness, although that's certainly not to say it's not nimble and doesn't have great acid structure too because it is, and it does. Lithe, elegant, juicy, and supremely drinkable. Concentrated nose of ripe wild raspberries and red cherries, fresh rose and violet floral tones, mossy riverbank stones, and white pepper. Palate is echoes the nose pretty identically in terms of flavor. Medium (+) acid. Medium (-) body with lovely soft texture and a small amount of superfine tannin to help give a bit of extra structure. — 7 years ago
