Terroir Chardonnay American Oak 2017

Absolutely earth shattering oak. Huge oak. You will never climb to the top of that tree oak. So much oak it’s almost spicy. If you dislike Oakes chardonnays, you will absolutely loathe this wine. — 7 days ago

I’ve always leaned towards the Alexander Valley wines but I’m a sucker for any Silver Oak. Nose, palette, finish all there and singing together. Love the traditional style. — 12 days ago

@Shay A To an extent. I have always thought that the American oak tends to be pretty pronounced in the Napa bottling, but I really didn’t get as many of the assertive flavors as I usually attribute to American oak in this bottle. I found the level of vanilla, sweet baking spices, etc to be quiet pleasant. Really picked up more Cab Franc than usual which is always a plus in my book. On that note, I’m wanting to add to my Cali Cabernet Franc collection. Do you have any in particular that you are a fan of? I know you like a nice Cab Franc!

Oh gosh. So many options. For the more classic style, the best I’ve come across in Napa are Detert (cousins to the Macdonalds, basically To Kalon fruit), Crocker & Starr and Dyer stick out. For a more ripe expression, Arnyca is a favorite. Lots of killer options!

Opened up nicely in the decanter. Paired well with steak. It’s bold, smooth, and full of flavor. — 17 days ago

Estate Grown Oak Knoll District Pinot Noir 2015

Slightly oaky but first taste is nice all in all.

Toasty oaky taste and aroma surrounding dark cherry, rhubarb notes

Strawberries and chocolate coming out...

And...mushrooms!

And more balanced with opening; dark, dry fruits rising over the initial blast of oaky notes.

Revisiting.
Still a fun and funky orange wine.
Oak is a little jagged today if I’m getting picky.
This time paired with fun in the sun on a beautiful winters day in The Adelaide Hills.
