Kept me on my feet, lots going on. Astringent, tannic, structured. Some tangerine. Strawberry rhubarb jam prevailed on day 3. — 5 days ago
This pale pink wine has a nose of strawberries, green parts and all. It is a fresh and lively aroma, one that invites the sip deliciously. The palate shows more strawberries, along with some stone fruit and a hint of salinity. The acidity is refreshing and will make for good food pairings across a wide range of dishes. — 6 days ago
Beautiful color of light pink with a peachy hue.
On the nose raspberries, sweet strawberries, limes, grapefruits, spices, light herbs and light sea salt.
Medium bodied with medium plus acidity.
Dry on the palate with strawberries, green apples, grapefruits, herbs, spices, earth, light vegetables and black pepper.
Tangy finish with spices and bitter almonds.
This is an easy drinking Rosé from Sonoma Coast. A nice summer wine.
Fruity on the nose and earthier on the palate. Light and engaging. Crisp and refreshing.
Feels like a French Rosé with a touch of new world.
Better after 20 minutes of airtime, and will pair nicely with food. I had it all by itself by the beach.
13.3% alcohol by volume.

Consistently my favorite RM Pinot, this was the last of my 2016s…no restraint! No surprise, it showed the most layers but also the most in reserve for evolving down the road. For those who still have, I’d hold another 2-3yrs, or decant 2+hrs.
This was opened later in the evening alongside other wines, but at least was given a decant for about an hour before it was mostly consumed. Out of the 2016 single vineyard Pinots I’ve consumed, the easy answer is it’s mostly similar to the Summa, but just because that’s the easy answer doesn’t mean it’s the wrong one. The similarities with the black tea, pomegranate, mint, and muddled underripe raspberries are obvious but where it diverges from the Summa is with the blood orange…the citrus layers here are absolutely fantastic. A great combo of fruit and savory notes (doesn’t seem to have much whole cluster), with nervy acidity and a lengthy finish. This is just beginning to unfurl. — 3 days ago
This is the 2012 J. Christopher Willamette Valley Unfiltered Pinot Noir from Newberg, Oregon.
On the nose is bright cherry, strawberry, cranberry, clove, vanilla, sweet oak, barnyard funk, cinnamon and soil.
Onnthe palate I found cherry, strawberry, raspberry, cola, mushroom, hibiscus, black tea, spice and earth.
This wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity and fine supple tannins that leaves you with a long red fruit dusty soil finish. This weekend looks to be a good one. Go out and enjoy yourselves and try some nice wines. Stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — a day ago
Willamette Blush, Willamette Valley, 68/20/12 blend of Auxerrois, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. Good acidity, light skin astringency on finish, light cherry-berry and lactic notes but mostly orchard fruit flavors. Unusual wine, tannin backbone gives it real character. — 2 days ago
So light I almost forgot to taste it. Glad I did, beautiful wine. It’s such a nice combo or the Pinots and blended so well. Lavender and hibiscus with a bright red fruit nose. Strawberries are most pronounced though I’m enjoying blood orange and cranberry too. Really a great bottle that went too quickly. — 2 days ago
Medium Ruby with aromas of berries, floral and spice notes. On the palate flavors of cherry and black raspberry with notes of currants, pepper and cinnamon spice and earthy oak notes. Aged for 10 months on French oak, fine grainy tannins, medium+ finish ending with fruit, vanilla oak character. Very nice. — 2 days ago
Disgorged in 2021, this new and ultra rare bottling from Prévost has debuted with the LC19 release comprised from grapes purchased “from sources that emphasize cultivated soils, low yields and full ripeness.” The base wine is a blend of equal parts Chardonnay from Le Mesnil and Pinot Noir from Puisieulx, at the northern end of the Montagne de Reims. Then, there is 20% reserve wine from 2018. While of course very young, it shows incredible depth and complexity today, and quite Burgundian and to no surprise, vinous in its expression. It flaunts a deep caramelized stone fruited profile with salted hazelnuts, curry leaf, gun smoke and lavender. The full bodied and satiny textured palate is just riveting with energy and it gives way to a mineral and saline driven finish that goes on and on. Wowza. — 8 days ago
Very enjoyable. Nose has vibrant, sappy dark cherry juice, a bit of sweet spice, and warm, crushed-rock infused minerality and a little teeny bit of cow pasture. Savory, with nice flavor concentration in the mouth, nice minerality and zingy acids at the tail end of the finish. Whispy tannins. So drinkable now, but will be better in 2-4. — 7 days ago
