Stoller Family Estate

Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2018

The weekend has arrived and I have opened the 2018 Stoller Family Estate Pinot Noir. This wine is from the Dundee Hills of the Willamette Valley in Oregon.

The nose has notes of cherry, strawberry, cranberries, rose petals, mushrooms and earth.

On the palate there is beautiful red fruit, cherry, cranberry, strawberry, spice, cola, vanilla, mushroom, a touch of oak and good earthiness.

This wine is medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel, medium acidity and medium fine sandpaper tannins that seamlessly moves into a long red fruit and light earyh finsh. I hope everyone has a beautiful weekend and please stay safe and continued health. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Estate Eola-Amity Hills Riesling 2019

Alder Yarrow
9.3

I’ve been nursing this bottle for a few days after reviewing it as a press sample and I gotta say, my appreciation for it continues to deepen. It’s a pitch perfect Riesling, at a German Kabinett level of sweetness and without a doubt one of the best Oregon Rieslings I’ve had. And I’ve had a lot of Oregon Riesling, often tasting several dozen each vintage. This wine has jasmine and orange blossom florals mixed with mandarin orange oil and rainwater, Asian pear and wet chalkboard minerality. Gorgeous. — 16 days ago

Domaine du Castel

Grand Vin Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Left bank Bordeaux blend - nose of dark fruit and bramble - a bit less than hoped for and still a bit dry on the palate - balance a bit off - strong around the mid palate - then a black hole - but medium long finish. Not as harmonious as one would have hoped for from one of Israel’s finest from the Judean Hills. — 18 days ago

Hope Well

Eola - Amity Hills Pinot Noir 2016

Nice red berries on the palate and nose, nice acidity and very fresh and elegant, not too oaky or extracted, good balance and decent finish. 90-91

Fruits rouges, floral aussi au palais comme au nez, belle acidité et fraîcheur, élégant et équilibré, pas trop extrait ou boisé, très bien.

Red fruit, complex, balance. On second night a bit awkward and hot. Very promising but needs more time. — 2 days ago
