2005 Louis Latour Corton-Charlemagne

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay more

11/19/2014 - Brandon T. Likes this wine: 95 points

Excellent. Big, rich, dense, long, mineral. Some buttery oak/malo. Taking on some honey/apricot notes from bottle age. Loved this.

2012 Patricia Green Cellars Pinot Noir Coury Clone Freedom Hill Vineyard

Willamette Valley more

3/11/2014 - Brandon T. Likes this wine: NR

A uniquely light, ethereal red fruited palate with gentle structure that finishes long and weightless. The nose reminds me of Beaujolais. Very unusual WV pinot, particularly for the vintage. I wonder if the whole cluster induced a bit of carbonic maceration, or if maybe the Coury clone is not what we think. I imagine this will improve with age, but it's lovely today.

Didn't take any notes unfortunately, but i recall a remarkably well balanced wine with a fine texture. Drinking very well. Excellent example of Willamette Valley chardonnay

2012 Haden Fig Pinot Noir

Willamette Valley more

11/12/2013 - Brandon T. Likes this wine: NR

Incredibly dark in the glass for an Oregon pinot. Very open with dark fruit, deep and concentrated, yet somehow remains very fresh and structurally balanced. Tremendous value.

2011 Arterberry Maresh Chardonnay

Dundee Hills more

11/8/2013 - Brandon T. Likes this wine: NR

Impressive and unique chardonnay at a friendly price. Lean yet powerful and dense, driven by intense minerality. Lemon cream and loads of seashells/stones on the palate. Long finish with lingering texture and high acidity. Begs for cellar time. Very interested to see how this develops.

Cabernet Franc more

Last two bottles have had nasty reductive aromas. A decant has blown the stink away, but the bottles still seemed muddles/muted compared the brilliance of the first one that I had.

2010 Baker Lane Syrah Sonoma Coast Cuvée

more

9/5/2013 - Brandon T. Likes this wine: NR

A tale of 3 wines. First night, good but a little more round and fruit forward than I was hoping for. Second night, fruit is totally in check with lots of a meat/blood/earth flavor that I can't exactly identify. Third night, huge black olive flavor emerged. Very interesting progression with massive changes in the wine over three nights.

This one needs air. Bottle very tight, structured 1st night. Dramatically better on day two. Clear light straw color, med body, lime, lemon cream, white pepper, gently floral, long mineral-driven finish. Very good.

2011 Cameron Chardonnay Dundee Hills

more

5/6/2013 - Brandon T. Likes this wine: NR

Excellent combination of rich, round texture and lingering acidity. Drank well over three nights. A bit more buttery oak than I remember from my last bottle, but in no way out of place. Great value.

2007 Gundlach Bundschu Pinot Noir Estate Vineyard

Sonoma Coast more

4/17/2013 - Brandon T. Likes this wine: 91 points

Restrained, fresh, savory, red fruit; mild tannin; notes of earthy mushroom; black tea bitterness & oak finish. The oak was a little more than I prefer when tasted in isolation, but was balanced out when paired with hearty food. Surprisingly good. Improved on night 2. Drink or hold.

Rich, classic Napa butter and oak. Not quite my style, but not a bad example of the style.

Great balance, tension, & structure to age. Very aromatic and complex on day one, but the tannins took over on days 2&3.

2007 Domaine Serene Pinot Noir Evenstad Reserve

3/26/2013 - Brandon T. Does not like this wine: NR

This bottle was very oak-dominated, and I couldn't get past it, even though others enjoyed it. I enjoyed this wine quite a bit a couple of years ago, so I'm not sure what to make of it.

Tangy cranberry/strawberry/rasberry fruit, a bit of mushroom earthiness, slight fruit pit bitterness. A fun frizzante wine with some unanticipated complexity. Nice.

Very fresh & lively, red fruited with ideal ripeness and mild tannins. I would not have guessed this was partical carbonic maceration. A really nice effort and great value. Drinking great now.

2006 Franz Künstler Stielweg Riesling Old Vine

2/25/2013 - Brandon T. Likes this wine: NR

From memory: Deep golden-orange color looked older than 2006. Tasted older as well. Dry but very ripe and round with flavors leaning toward honey & apricot. Not as complex as expected, but pleasant anyway.

2011 Matello Pinot Noir Lazarus

Willamette Valley more

2/12/2013 - Brandon T. Likes this wine: 89 points

Very lean on opening. Let half the bottle sit for several hours, and it gained some weight. Tart red fruit, tingly acidity, apparent whole cluster, little oak. Quite nice if you like this style. Needs some air/cellar time.

2010 Eyrie Vineyards Pinot Gris

Dundee Hills more

2/9/2013 - Brandon T. Likes this wine: 88 points

Golden-straw color, aromas of tropical fruit, dried pineapple, lemon candy, watermelon, honey, wax, nuts, mineral, little or no oak. Medium to full bodied, but restrained palate. Finish lingers with acidity and echoes the fruit flavors.
Edit: this really opened up on day 2, and improved tremendously. Give this wine some air or cellar time. 91+ on day 2.
