Such strength from a #pinotrocks truely #oregon in color and structure. Light caramel and chocolate wafers entrance my smell perception and then they are supported by lovely acidity and a long finish. Excellent. Tasted it side by side with Domaine Drouhin Dundee Hills and I much preferred this to that — 8 months ago
Nuances of raspberry, leafy earth, rosewood, and lavender. Medium plus mouthfeel that exudes dense, ripe plum and scorched raspberries, with a soft note of rosemary, rose petal, nettle and tar. Porcine notes. Excellent stuff! #pinotnoir #Boedecker #pinot #pn #singlevineyard #burg #oregonpinotcamp #oregon #Dundee — 9 months ago
2013 vintage. Tulips, ripe cherries in tree, raspberry essence. Holly and spearmint apparently had a winter tryst under a spray of delicate cranberry blossom. Pickled strawberry and dry pinecone emerge from a smoky cave, there is a citrus whiff, from a nighttime grove ringed by oregano. Light mouthfeel with electric potential. Subtleties abound. Cranberry meets rolled, red apple skin, chewed leather, applewood chips, bitter cherry, dried rose petals and smoky, red saffron. #pinotnoir #oregonpinotnoir #sheavineyards #oregon #pinotparadise #noir #noirs #boedecker #pn #pinotweknow — a year ago
Sass is always one of my favorites for the price but I hadn't tried this vintage yet. As always, the fruit is ultra bright and expressive. There's no doubt about it, this has that natural wine vibe to it. Slight VA makes the aroma explode out of the glass... raspberry, blackberry and sour cherry. It's very lifted and lively. Slightly hot and the fruit is maybe a touch astringent. Structurally, this wine lacks delineation but it's delicious anyways. It's a different take and a more honest wine than most in the price bracket. Last time I talked to Jerry Sass he told me he was using less and less so2. Very cool.
