9.0

Still going strong - now showing same black & blue fruits w/subtle hi-tone note along w/many secondary flavors of minerals, graphite, savory, forest floor and white pepper. Def northern Rhone vibe here, teeth staining, inky brooding & powerfully built, grippy - still can’t believe it’s from Mi — 5 days ago

Interesting to see more wines being made away from the traditional strongholds in the USA.

Bob: indeed - it’s like the proliferation of microbreweries, there is so much good wine being produced in places you don’t realize had that capability. I travel frequently and try to find gems in out of the way places

High Slopes Fort Ross Vineyard Pinot Noir 2003

9.3

Fascinating to revisit this wine - still showing beautifully w/very consistent profile from previous occasions... so much time left on this. For those unfamiliar w/Fred Scherrer - he started at Dehlinger and then struck out on his own. He’s a UCD guy (my Alma Mater)... I used to rep his wine and it’s incredible across his portfolio. — 3 days ago
