Eola - Amity Hills Pinot Noir 2019

JKT
9.2

This is Sunday's Child. Opened 12/19/20 with MEL with the Monday and Tuesday Siblings. As previously CVed 3 weeks ago had good structure and dark berries with notes of earth and a bit of funk that's beguiling. Was more off a muscle man compared to Strings. But on 12/21 from Eto it was just delivered and waxed of complex notes came forth. Excellent for aging — 2 months ago

Tuesday's Child Pinot Noir Rose 2019

JKT
9.1

Cved 10/25/20. Deep color almost like a diluted red. Nose is closed off but good acidity and texture with long finish. More strawberries and red fruits and stones. Not quite as impressive as Monday’s Child at this point but still excellent. Cved again 12/19/20 opened 12/23. Dark color that looks like a somewhat diluted Pinot. It was rather closed off and reticent first time but got progressively better. Seems true for all the siblings. This is an impressive set that is bound by a common thread of lightness of being and a lively texture and long finish. What an impressive set! Upping by one to 9.1 — 4 months ago

Shake Ridge Vineyard Grenache Blend 2018

This needed a day to really hit its stride. Just kept the cork in on the counter. Tons of fruit from blackberries, cherries, also a bit of stone fruit. Some herbs, stone, and just a touch of flowers. It really is well balanced. This seems like a Beaujolais-CDP love child. Amazing for the climate this comes from. — 3 days ago

Beauroy 1er Cru Chablis Chardonnay 2016

Beautiful intense yellow colour not a lot in the nose but the taste is wonderful and so complex. Its all you can wish for in a superdry good withe, stones and lime, altibess from the sea, lemon zest but more sour, a taste of a different place and of wet autumn with sun, some kind of gooseberry like they used to taste as a child. 2016 perfectly age so much complexity and lot of balance and fruit with the acid but mixed and wonderful. Very nice on its own and with light food can match cream and pepper and seafood. After a while in the glass notes of nashi pears and rubbers appears — 4 months ago

Problem Child Zinfandel Blend 2018

Delectable Wine
9.6

Youthful purple. Expressive, spice- and mineral-accented cherry and dark berry aromas reveal an emerging floral top-note and a hint of vanilla. Sappy and alluringly sweet, offering palate-staining red/blue fruit preserve, candied violet, spice-cake and mocha flavors that deftly marry richness to energy. Deepens with air while maintaining urgency, and closes extremely long and spicy, with gentle tannic grip and resonating blue fruit and floral notes.
