Drinks like Pinot Port. High alcohol, a little raisiny. Still raspberry, somewhat floral nose. Not quite what Ihad in mind for the evening.

Thin, watery, not much fruit. Worst of three bottles, too much variability in this negociant blend.

Best chardonnay I've ever had. Lemon, butterscotch, and a little hazelnut flavor. A little bit of fizzy bubbles, but it blew off after 40 min. Oak was well integrated. Paired beautifully with jambalaya.

2008 Holdredge Pinot Noir Selection Massale

Russian River Valley more

Wine was really out of balance. I was expecting red cherries and strawberries based on previous vintages. It had red and black cherries, but was clunky and had a quite a bit of heat poking through which I previously hadnt experienced in a Holdredge.

I think this is going into the Lot 18 fail pile. Dark fruit, disjointed, clipped finish, and hot. had an intresting after taste, almost rubbery like. Bummer.

2009 Joseph Swan Vineyards Pinot Noir Cuvée de Trois

Russian River Valley more

Enjoyable enough. Dark cherries, somewhat spicy. No heat or alcohol poking through. Shut down after about 2 hours of being opened. Started to show itself again after 24 hours with more subtle floral notes and the spice mellowed.

Beautiful wild strawberries on the nose. Strawberry and rainier cherries on the palate with a hint of vanilla. Slightly clipped finish is the only flaw I could find. Highly enjoyable bottle of wine.

Lemon curd and gravenstein apples on the palate. Some creaminess, but no buttered popcorn. Lots of acidity. No oak showing through. Very nice restrained chard. Still has a long life ahead of it.

It's got some heat, questionable QPR. Black cherry, black pepper, muted nose. Last go around with this producer. Tired of the syrah type features in my Pinot.

Blackberries and a little floral on the nose. Brambly palate and a short finish. First night the wine was very good. Second night it had some heat and a bit of a clipped finish. This one might be on its way down. Drink up, scored on night 1

Maple syrupy nose, chunky cherry palate and a real thin midsection. American oak is still a little rambunctious wish I drank this 1-2 years ago, but as of now it's not much better than the Eveshams at a quarter of the price.

Not sure what went wrong here, but it was a hot syrupy mess. One dimensional black cherry kool aid kind of thing. No acid, did not go with food. Bought as a counterpoint to the Sojourn, I can hardly believe it came out of the same vineyard. Terrible QPR.

After seeing some pruney notes on the WB board, I decided to crack open a bottle and see where it was. Brambly and some crushed violets on the nose. Raspberry, blueberry, and blood orange on the palate. A little cracked pepper and no vanilla on the finish. A great bottle. Saved glass for day two, similar notes. Looking forward to trying a vertical of the vineyard.

Very tight. Lots of oak, some red fruit and cassis. Needs some time to unwind. Not a repurchase to find out.

Bronze in color. Still a lot of acidity and citrus and minerality, no oak. Tasted more like a white burg then cali chard. Finish started to fall apart towards the end of the night. Seems like its on a decline.

From Dad's cellar. Black cherries, plums, a little cedar. Still well balanced with a bit of tannin left. Reminds me that I like Alexander Valley cabs more than Napa.

Drank over three nights. First glass was tight as could be, was delicious night #2, and absolutely signing on night#3. Cherries, plum, and some cofee, and dusty tanins.. Really enjoyable to watch its evolution.

Just a baby, but very enjoyable. Drank the screw cap first. Big black fruit, oaky, pepper, and still has massive tannins. Going to let the other sit for another 4-5 years.
