Drew Voit is knocking it, I find that his wines need time in the bottle to really understand them. While in a great spot more time will only aid in its development. Has a ever so sweet side balanced by savory notes. This particularly vineyard displays definition and highlights the details. Great offering. — 3 months ago
Very old world in style. Nose has lots of cracked river stones and forest underbrush, cherry and rose petal notes. Concentrated flavors bit in a compact and medium bodied style. Still a fair amount of tannin, but it’s soft. Very nice acids and a long, savory finish. At 6 years still seems relatively youthful. — 16 days ago
Medium ruby red color and clear. Cherry fruit, wet leaves, cedar and slight smoke on the nose. Lingers a bit of vanilla and spice. A dark cherry and strawberry fruit taste, but subtle As it sits on the tongue notes of spice, pepper and cedar come out and finishes off with tea and a minerally taste. Drinks smooth and full bodied Pinot. The flavors are layered making it very enjoyable to drink on a nice fall weather evening right in our backyard. — 5 days ago
Welcome to Friday everyone and guess what, we are having another Sauvignon Blanc. This one is the 2016 J Christopher Willamette Valley Sauvignon Blanc.
The nose on this wine is very full with wonderful aromas of sweet peach, clean lime, grapefruit, honeydew melon, minerality and wet concrete.
On the palate are nice citrus notes of lime, pink grapefruit, lemon pith, guava, minerality and wet stones.
This wine is medium body with medium + acidity that leads into a long clean fresh citrus finish. We are having heavy rains this evening and are supposed to continue through the weekend bt this wine makes it a bit brighter with its bright clean crispness. Have a great weekend and enjoy some beautiful wines. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 19 days ago
A clear, medium garnet color with a slight purple rim. A really pleasant nose of slightly muted dried cherry, aromatic herbs, rose petals, and fresh tea. This is probably my favorite Pinot even though it’s the entry level offering from Evening Land but this is just so damn good. Everything that I need and want in a Pinot Noir. Sly and delicate, this never turns the volume up too loud. Light on its feet with a nice deftness, I almost, almost, want to say Burgundian. As clean and polished as this initially shows, there is a beautiful streak of slight funkiness that takes it to another level. Raspberry jam, moist earth, gravel, and cherries on the palate. I love this wine. I could drink it everyday. — 6 days ago
Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.
Nose has lemon grass, kiwi, lemon pith and green hay.
Palate has lime zest, under-ripe green melon, wheat grass and under-ripe lime.
This bottle needs a few more years, seems a little awkward right now. — 18 days ago
