Bigger extraction #russianrivervalley #pinotnoir. Cherry preserves, slight peppery notes on the nose. Creamy texture on the palate, start to get some varietal character and good acidity as it warms up. I prefer a more elegant, lower ABV style but if heavier Pinot is your thing, here’s a good example though QPR isn’t compelling. — 4 days ago
Rose petal, dried raspberry and strawberry nose, persimmon remnants, bing cherry, roobios and black teas. Cranberry-apple afterthoughts. Bright and young with juicy attitude. Cranberry and tart cherry entry, rose, tar and smoky jerky. Plums and sage with grape leaf. Waiting for full opening.

I had this 2015 and I could sense it was already starting to show negative signs of age. Starting to show tertiaries and tiredness. It’s a lovely wine and I would rate it higher, but if you have 2015s or older vintages you should drink them now or RIP. That’s my feeling. #pinotnoir #martinborough #newzealand — 2 months ago
Enjoyable #centralotago #pinotnoir on the day it was opened. Cherry, raspberry, some delicate spice, tea notes with some tartness that paired well with Moroccan Tagine-style chicken. 3 days later and it’s showing its 6 years of age all at once, bricking in the glass and oxidation on the nose. Decent QPR for immediate consumption. ~$14 at Costco. — a month ago
Nose of plummy, sirloin deliciousness; violets and lavender. Imminently drinkable with cranberry and raspberry giving way to tart cherry and a smoky streak throughout. Beautiful and impressive display of finesse with wiry sinew. Perfect silken complement to cedar plank steelhead trout. .

Only a few weeks after tasting this at my new favorite Houston restaurant, I was delighted to see this at Costco for ~$15. Same tasting notes apply; my thoughts here are it’s a commendable balance from a lightly extracted elegant style and a more forceful richer style reflected in a lovely creamy texture. Plenty of tension preceded by those aromatics beg for food pairing so no surprise this wine graces the smart sommelier wine lists. A once in a lifetime pandemic might be the reason the #willamettevalley #pinotnoir lover gets to buy this at a bargain retail price while also enjoying it at a fine dining restaurant. — 2 months ago
