2006 Scott Harvey Early Burgundy

Napa Valley Abouriou more

4/25/2015 - rjquillin Likes this wine: NR

True to Scotts words, quite like a PN with additional body. Finessed, but quite lively. Really wish I'd grabbed additional as this still has life.

Made this wtso purchase based on some '08 and '12 Terre des Anges purchases from LB; rather liked the '08, this not so much.

5/24/2015 - rjquillin wrote: NR

Garagiste purchase ~$14; he's done better for this tariff.
Tart and disjointed @ PnP, did improve after a few fridge days sans Ar.
Gifted a couple bottles and they received 'ok' comments. What to do?

2011 Wellington Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

Sonoma County more

5/15/2015 - rjquillin Likes this wine: NR

Not seeing 'overwhelming' fruit @ PnP, but clearly still primary and lacking balance the first day. By day three/four in the fridge this settled down into a fine Wellington. Drink now, but not without a leisurely decant.

2008 Ramsay Pinot Noir North Coast

more

4/16/2015 - rjquillin wrote: NR

Need more woot finds like this one. Properly cellared, drinking nicely. A bit of funk @ PnP for interest. Lighter style, as others have noted, but still showing nice fruit, moderate acid with minimal tannins. Zero hint of any acetyl. A win for screw tops.

2012 Jamieson Ranch Vineyards Pinot Noir Light Horse

California more

3/29/2015 - rjquillin wrote: NR

Unremarkable in every aspect, pretty much to be expected for a $10 PN. Not expecting much here, but I'll give it a year and see what happens.

2007 Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon Atlas Peak

3/28/2015 - rjquillin Likes this wine: NR

Despite being open since last August, (Ar) this took quite a while to open up and blow off some off notes. Consumed and improved over multiple days.

2010 St. Julian Winery Riesling

Floral, on the sweeter side of dry, simple with some elements a bit off.
Only decent at $8, I've had better budget bottles. Dan Tudor's Radog comes to mind.

2011 Jamieson Ranch Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Double Lariat

Napa Valley more

2/14/2015 - rjquillin wrote: NR

Saw this combined in a WW offer for ~$30 and picked up locally for $20 to see what it was like. A good effort in a challenging year and worth the tariff. A big CA style bottle that age and a decant should help out.

Santa Barbara County SuperTuscan Blend more

12/19/2014 - rjquillin wrote: NR

With red sauce pasta, PnP from 12C cellar seemed tight and disjointed, a bit acidic; tasted like a $5 market bottle. Recorked, no Ar, and into the fridge. Same bottle and leftovers three days later a totally different experience. Nice fruit, balanced acidity, tasty tannins and enough complexity to keep it interesting.
