2010 Spring Valley Vineyard Frederick

Walla Walla Valley Red Bordeaux Blend more

2/17/2015 - texaswino Likes this wine: 92 points

beautiful Red blend from WA. Not a fruit bomb but sophisticated and lovely. Needs a decant but is starting to come into its drinking window. aromas of currant, cherry, straw, earth, herb and leather. Chewy tannins and a lingering finish.

Well aged and delicious. Drank after an Australian shiraz that kicked butt too. Somewhat similar in style.

Dark fruit, well balanced. Needs a decant at this point but will reward that. Dried currant, cherry, a bit short on the finish but dry and well rounded. A bargain at $20-25.

give this a little time to open up and be rewarded. Notes from day two...
The wine looks Ruby colored. It smells like Cranberry, Raspberry, Red Currant, Medium Toast, Cinnamon, and Meaty.
The body is Medium. The wine has Leathery texture. The wine finishes Medium.

This has many years ahead of it. Has barely moved from 2+ years ago. Decant. Lovely red and black fruit with nice minerality and staunch tannin.

2011 Carlisle Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley

more

3/20/2013 - texaswino Likes this wine: 93 points

of the 3 2011 Carlisle Zins I have tasted this is the tastiest for drinking now. The Sonoma Cty and Monte Rosso both need more time IMO. Wonderful aromatics, clean fruit, long finish.

2009 Owen Roe Red Wine Yakima Valley

Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/17/2012 - texaswino wrote: 90 points

I find this a very tasty blend. Cherries from the Merlot, tannic bite from the Cab. This will improve over time but I like it now too. Admittedly I was drinking it with chips and fire roasted salsa so that may have cut some of the tannin.

2010 Mollydooker Shiraz The Boxer

South Australia more

6/7/2012 - texaswino wrote: 91 points

In your face aromas of black and blue fruits. Heat of alcohol too. Big brawny and full bodied but has fine acidity and dusty tannins. 16% alc is apparent but not overpowering. Fruit bomb.

2007 Pahlmeyer Merlot

Napa Valley more

4/14/2012 - texaswino wrote: 96 points

wow...no decant this time around and compared to 14 months ago this has fleshed out dramatically. This is what I was hoping for. Sexy aromatics and loads of dark rich fruit and a nice spicy edge as well. Mocha, berry, leather, hint of tobacco and a lingering bright finish. Outstanding Merlot.

Ran across this wine the other day and being a HUGE fan of the 2005, and considering the price, I picked up a couple of bottles. Similar in many ways to the 2005. A wonderful wine, has a bit more tannin structure than the 2005, to be expected of the vintage, but also has the smooth flavors, beautiful nose and fullness of the 05. Another winner and I will be back for more, probably tomorrow. ;)

Ripe fruit, some herbal notes of sage, earth, vanilla. Very ripe and a touch sweet on the palate, nice earthy edge, dry finish that lingers. Will try again.

I just have a hard time wrapping my nose around some of these SA wines. The aromas are so green. I have to admit that the palate is much less aggressively green but its hard to get past the nose.

this is very impressive at the age of 10. It actually takes about an hour to open up, and then it sings with notes of berries and chocolate, earth. The nose is wonderful. Seamless and smooth, this has aged beautifully. Outstanding!

9/11/2011 - texaswino wrote: NR

much better on second day but it seems to be out of balance. Has some nice red fruit, but the first day there was a funky aroma and too much heat. The second day the funk had faded but was still in the background. Fruit flavors came through much better on second day and I enjoyed it much more. Tough to rate. Day 1 ...84. Day 2...90.
