2013 Reynvaan Family Vineyards Viognier Foothills in the Sun

Walla Walla Valley more

2/5/2016 - bajayngo wrote: NR

This is some exciting wine here. Bursting notes of stone fruits, a bit of tropical but more honeycomb, mineral for days, fresh herbs. The minerality in the wine was so expressive and inviting and had a nice viscous/oily texture. Will purchase more for sure.

Very fat and luscious wine with a creamy texture. Custard, honey and honeycomb, lanolin, herbs, toasted marshmallow with some spices and just a touch of heat when paired with a few foods.

Great value at $16 and in the style I really enjoy. Opens with forest floor, peat moss, tart red berries, pepper, great framing acids and a bit of smoke and tobacco leaf.

2013 Domaine Huet Vouvray Sec Le Mont

Chenin Blanc more

Similar to my notes from 2014 with the aged cheese notes on the nose with pears, sea breeze, citrus acids, mulch and a touch of honey. Very consistent and will age forever.

Chenin Blanc more

Drank over two days and it was showing a racy citrus acidity, tart pears, honey and sea shell and screaming for food. Comparing my notes to a year ago this is going in a sharper direction that what I would have expected. Always fun to follow the arch of a wine from year to year.

2011 Clos du Jaugueyron Margaux

Red Bordeaux Blend more

1/26/2016 - bajayngo wrote: NR

When 1st opened a ton of funky earth and brett. After a double decant and open in the bottle for a few hours it rounded out with earthy funk, cellar dust, leather, tobacco, bright cherries and spices. Had side by side with another bottle open for 24+ hrs and they were very similar and showed well for aging.

Was a little too green when 1st opened. Waited a day and good thing I did because it was a nice seashell, searing citrus acids, herbs, vibrant mouth feel and good structure.

2011 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia Le Serre Nuove

Bolgheri Red Bordeaux Blend more

1/23/2016 - bajayngo wrote: NR

I don't get too excited over bdx varietals very often but this piqued my interest. Great earthy, gravely, volcanic thing going on with a beam of tart fruit, leather, spices, herbs and a bit of tobacco and cigar box. Beautiful balance and complexities. Was great with pizza as well surprisingly.

2004 Sbragia Family Cabernet Sauvignon Rancho del Oso

Howell Mountain more

1/23/2016 - bajayngo wrote: NR

12yrs old and still youthful. The oak is mostly integrated showing some cedar, spice and flowery notes followed by a nice beam of cherry, huckleberry and fresh tilled earth. Has a nice finesse right now and surprising acids on the finish with food. Didn't budge much over 2days which bodes well for additional aging.

2012 Domaine Lombard Crozes-Hermitage Maison Lombard

Syrah more

1/20/2016 - bajayngo wrote: NR

My favorite bouquet of the night of blind tasting. Beautiful flowers, muddled tropical fruit, marinated beef, iron, lavender, blue and black fruits and pepper. The palate followed the nose with great balance and streamlined focus. One of the better C-H's I've had and the other wine I guessed right double blind.

Man do I love BdM. Beautiful nose of dry tomatoes, cellar dust, balsamic, smoke, rose and thorns, a nice depth of fruit and very nice back end tannins. One of the few wines I got right double blind.

1/20/2016 - bajayngo wrote: NR

Was served blind and with the bright red fruits, a touch of forest floor, lighter color I was thinking Cru Beaujolais. Was a cool to find out it was a Blaufrankisch (which I definitely can't say).

Always a favorite wine of mine and one of the few wines I enjoy wine with generous american oak. The oak was very integrated with notes of black tea, coffee grounds, cellar dust and some nice wood tannins. Very enjoyable as usual.

Bold, lush and fresh fruit with some fresh tilled earth had me thinking new world on this. Barbera d'Alba when made well is always a lively and generous wine.

The nose offered abundant florals of tropical fruit and flowery notes. The palate was big alc and very expansive. Was a bit confused as it was served blind but wasn't' shocked as NW grenache blanc.

Absolutely love this style of wine. Slight oxidative style but adding complexity and a nuttiness followed by apricots, honey, vanilla, almonds, wax and just layers of fun. Will find more.

The grassy notes, sea bed, herbs and razor sharp acids had me thinking Muscadet or Sancerre. Wasn't shocked when it was revealed to be Chabis as there was a bit of smoky flint too.

2011 Rasa Vineyards Chardonnay Dream Deferred

Columbia Valley more

1/20/2016 - bajayngo wrote: NR

Served blind and it reminded me of another wine I couldn't place. Lots of apples, citrus, grapefruit, mineral and pithy finish for days. After it was revealed to be Rasa WA chard I was like Mason Bleue Au Contraire! Very similar from my memory and would love to try side by side.

Was very impressed with this. Bright tart strawberry and raspberry fruits with forest floor and fungus and a very cool savory note. Had over two days and barely budged so think this will evolve for quiet a while.

Drinking a bit young with lots of bright red and blue fruits with chalk, graphite, herbs and orange peel. Was a good pairing with ribeye and ny steaks. Would definitely give some more bottle age if had more.
