2014 De Wetshof Chardonnay Limestone Hill

Robertson more

7/21/2015 - rjquillin Does not like this wine: NR

Aroma very much like a SB. Spritz and high acidity, citrus, grass, something a bit musky. Blind would never have called a chard. Not a fan.
I'll stick with my IH unoaked for only a few $$ more.

2011 High Valley Vineyard Petite Sirah

Lake County more

$15 flyer from Invino to fill out a case that drank at it's price. New World drink now PS with loads of dark fruit, a touch of vanilla I'd assume from barrel but lacking the spine to cellar; little change over a few days in the fridge.

From a mixed case Chaim suggested drink this first. Ruby in color, cherry and red berry on the palate, lighter overall, summer sipper.

7/12/2015 - rjquillin Likes this wine: NR

Interesting reading previous notes here.
I did find this to improve and lose a bit of it's edge after a decant and a bit of air.

2013 Patricia Green Cellars Pinot Noir Berserkers' Cuvée

Chehalem Mountains more

7/12/2015 - rjquillin Likes this wine: NR

Another PN consumed too young, but a good benchmark for the remaining bottles. Can't add to what has been said.

2009 Wellington Vineyards Zinfandel Meeks Hilltop Ranch

Sonoma Valley more

A crowd pleaser now, well balanced, if somewhat soft, plenty of dark fruits, spice and pepper.

This is aging beautifully, it's a pity so many bottles have been consumed in their youth. At the woot price an absolute steal I wish I'd have maxed out on.

$10 Let's Pour flyer for a new varietal and worth the low tariff in 2014 for a 2007 bottle. Nice table wine still showing good fruit and balance not overwhelmed by oak.

6/27/2015 - rjquillin Likes this wine: NR

perhaps my bottles have held up better than others, but I found this an enjoyable, somewhat aged, syrah and won't be rushing to empty my remaining bottles.

2011 Kirkland Signature Chianti Classico Chianti Classico Riserva

Chianti Classico DOCG Sangiovese more

6/27/2015 - rjquillin wrote: NR

Pretty basic bottle that improved over PnP after a few days in the fridge to knock off the edges.
Agree with Scott W, would be a good cellar defender for friends that don't much care.

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.

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.

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.

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.
