Oregon Syrah? Surprisingly tasty! Floral & very high acid. Thanks @djbocce!

Last of 4 bottles. All with depressed corks and showing immediate signs of oxidation. This bottle came out of the oxidative phase after being open for a bit and showed dark raspberry fruit with overwhelming white pepper. Reminded me of Crozes or Saint Joseph. Very much surprised after the other bottles.

Tart cherries, Coca Cola, and pretty musky. Pretty acidic (but I did not have time to recant this, which may be part of the problem). Not bad at all, but not my favorite Adelsheim.

Meh. Not bad but not much there. Last vintage apparently since they've regrafted the vines to pinot.

Sappy yet still pure. Olives, lightly peppered; chalky and acidic. Very juicy and long. If only it could finish a touch more dry. Easy to like, in a good way.
