13’ Thomas Fogarty Nelson Family Vineyard. 5 barrels produced. Elevation 1700 feet.
Compared to my previous notes from a few years ago… I feel completely different about this one.
This is a very unique expression of mountain fruit. Medium -bodied. Much darker version of Pinot Noir. Dark red “bruised” fruit emerges over time.. Cranberries, plum skins, leather, cedar, stone-like minerality!?! Primarily mid- palate wine. Bit of a creamy finish. Different... good way. Drinking now. — 10 days ago
Baked red apple, buttered popcorn, hay. But understated and pretty well balanced with bright citric acid. Very nice structure, a little oxidation from the age, but standing up quite well. — 3 days ago
From 375 ml - Showing darker gold color than I expected, it was disjointed at first with rich apples and a touch of nuts up front giving way to bright lemon and acid on the finish. With air it comes together well as the rich fruit wraps around a bright core of acidity that gives it both depth and agility. — 11 days ago
Just like a spectacular, old school Côte Rotie from the Côte Brune with pepper and minerals dominating the nose, then olive, pepper, and brambly fruit and the palate, if you want to experience what great Côte Rotie was like on release in the 1990s, this is where to look. — 13 hours ago
Clear cherry color with earthy notes of cherry and blackberry. Moderately high in alcohol (14.1%) which comes through on the palate but excellent with baked salmon. — 5 days ago
Tuscan style red blend. Winemaker Noah’s take on a super Tuscan (Tuscan varietals blended w Bordeaux varietals). This is a blend of Sangiovese, cab franc, cab sauv and touch of merlot. Like a great red table wine from Tuscany. Perfect for a dinner party - great gifting wine and a crowd pleaser. Nice well rounded wine. Pairs well with food. Yes yes yes — 4 days ago
