Yesterday’s Wednesday Wine Committee, hosted by @Jeff Meyer , was so educational with fantastic German & Austrian wines. 1 sparkler, 5 whites, 5 reds, 1 dessert wine. All served blind as usual.

This was more mineral driven than the first red in every way. Not necessarily savory, but very herbal. Almost grassy. Sour and underripe cherry, bitter dark cocoa, medium acidity, and surprisingly tannic on the finish with too many herbs to differentiate against! Complex. I called this Spätburgunder.

Terrific nose out of the gates. Sour cherry, floral, pine resin, pine needles, lilacs, gorgeous florals. Cranberry as well. Even pomegranate. Stunning nose. Palate is s refined and ultra elegant with gorgeously sweet fruit. Silky and sweet with unreal fruit and lovely acidity. So silky and sweet with a gossamer like texture. Terrific and ridiculous. What a showing.

So high-toned and crunchy, tart, mineral, very floral. More akin to Cru Beaujolais if you wanted to pigeonhole it. Potpourri, cranberry, blood orange, smoke, dried flowers, pink peppercorn and star anise. Very pretty, love the light frame and puckering acid it has.

Couldn’t resist popping one to try. Has the same wild, earthy, lifted, fragrant beauty as the last vintage although maybe a touch lighter.

Decanted ~5hr.

Color is brown ruby, unfiltered.

Nose has cedar infused cherry-red raspberry, rose-violet florals, touch of alcohol, bright potpourri and wet soil. Nose is quite tight!

Palate has strawberry juice, orange peel, under-ripe cherry, dried herbs, blackberry jam and great (high) acidity. Finish is medium at this point in a young life.

Soo young, but very elegant! Future bottles should be 2023+

Lightly cloudy on the double decant for service this afternoon. Part of an epic E&M based afternoon plan as we sit by the chimnea on a beautiful early Spring day. The Cardinal's and Chickadee's are now singing the background chorus.

Spectacular QPR, deep, rich cherry and blackberry fruit, intensely mineral, really opens with air 😍🙌

Highly aromatic and quite a bit crazy with fermented strawberries, a bunch of herbs, cloves & bay leaves, pickled cucumber water. Funky and as unorthodox as it gets but this shows amazing purity on the palate and a great tension between the juicy, spicy acidity and clean fruit. The tannins are soft yet persistent. Wow, this has a beautiful mouthfeel and great length. And shows very nicely now.
A great if funky Pinot!
