Weekly Wine Committee. 1 sparkler, 3-4 whites, 3-4 reds and 1 dessert wine format. Served blind.

I called this Russian River valley Pinot. Extracted, powerful and flavorful. Loads of black cherry, cola, sweet oak, and candied blackberry on the finish. Still young. Underlying notes of cedar and maple.

So restrained and subtle. My first Merry E, and I’m impressed. Lovely perfumed nose, exhibiting crushed violets. Soft entry on the palate. Resolved tannins and neutral acidity. Nice cola and cherry notes finish what is and excellent example.
At dinner with DL peeps Robert, Hugh and his wife - great times! Thanks for sharing, boys.

Nice favors, full of berry and cherry favors. 2012 vintage. Wonderful easy finish. Enjoying it with the friends we traveled with to the winery last November and the great tasting we had there. We really enjoy these wines.

Too early but it has the potential. Had with Ox tail ragu polenta gnocchi at Alba in DSM.

Slight cork taint was disappointing. More of this in the cellar so will revisit soon.
