Vin de Pays d'Oc Pinot Noir 2017

Same thoughts as my first tasting in April. Richer-style fruit-forward #pinotnoir that held it’s own at a wine tasting party. — 9 days ago

Echezeaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir

Vintage 2006 / tasted blind / terrific confusion, no taster thought of #pinotnoir but we agreed: great wine! Classic, cedar, laurel, stable. Nice acidity. — 7 months ago

Clos des Portes Monopole Marsannay Pinot Noir

Vintage 2011 / tuilé colour rim, half transparant, inviting smell, true to type #pinotnoir with layers: mocca, coffee, autumnleaves, cedar, spicy, impressions of stable, rich and noble. Good acidity and really good balance. Tasted three years ago, has developed excellent. A very sumptuous wine, great to start this year. Noble wine with long aftertaste. Happy New Year! #marsannay — 8 months ago

Vin de Pays d'Oc Pinot Noir 2017

Richer, fruitier style #pinotnoir from #languedocrousillon. It’s got some spicy notes plus cocoa and a touch of oak supported by a firm base of acidity. Pretty solid everyday Pinot. — 4 months ago

Domaine Jacqueson

Preaux Rully 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Cranberry, beetroot, sap; features the same freshness and energy displayed by so many ‘17s. More US Pinot growers should go to school on Burgundies like this. #rully #jacqueson #pinotnoir — 7 months ago

Alto Adige - Südtirol Blauburgunder 2015

Pure red cherry, with the barest hint of Alpine crushed minerals and pine resin. Almost Santa Barbara-like in this hot vintage, but then the structure and minerals kick in on the long, ripe finish. Can only imagine what the ‘18 will be like. #niedrist #blauburgunder #pinotnoir #südtirol — 8 months ago

The Ojai Vineyard

Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2016

Exuberant, fruity and definitely Santa Barbara...but expertly crafted, complex and refined. No intrusive new oak, no cloying grapiness, no hot finish. Textbook stuff. #ojaivineyard #santabarbaracounty #pinotnoir — 8 months ago

Fuedo Arancio

Stemmari Pinot Noir 2016

Satisfying #pinotnoir discovery from #siciliadoc at a private restaurant party. I wonder how they get enough cool evenings down in Sicily during those hot summers for this grape? Nevertheless, it works nicely - wild cherry fruit up front, very restrained oak and manageable tannins. The wine worked well with some Italian favorites like lasagne and sweet sausage. — 6 months ago

2012 Rochioli Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

A great combination of bright red fruit and spice notes. Vibrant, classy California Russian Valley pinot noir. Went well with Japanese sukiyaki.

A light, flinty, and crisp pink from my new favorite winery. Sampled at a @magruders tasting and bought their #PinotNoir #PinotGris, and #Rose. All excellent! — 8 months ago
