2008 Standing Stone Vineyards Pinot Noir

Seneca Lake more

5/26/2015 - David_T wrote: flawed

There are still some pleasant strawberry/red cherry notes and with its good acidity I think this would likely still be drinking well, except the use of synthetic cork likely caused premox as there's an out of place vinegar note. A shame as it's otherwise a pretty wine.

Still drinking well with notes of apple, pear and butterscotch. Light, integrated acid/minerals and a short finish. Drink sooner rather than later.

2012 Fattori Soave Danieli

Garganega more

Floral along with notes of honeysuckle and pear. As Loren mentions it's a touch oily but that's balanced by medium minerality and acidity. Drink now through next summer.

Aromas of honeysuckle, white flowers and papaya. The flavors match but add a white pepper note. Smooth, well-rounded body. I prefer a bit more acidity but this is tasty as is.

2013 Debonné Sauvignon Blanc

Grand River Valley more

5/23/2015 - David_T Likes this wine: 87 points

This is distinctly sauvignon blanc but, as it typical for the grape, shows differently coming from the GRV vs other regions in which it's grown. This has the classic herbal/grassy note as well as gooseberry but this wine shows more green apple than I've tasted in other regions. Certainly no jalapeno/cat pee. There's also a bit of tropical fruit and even a prickly pear cactus note which is definitely unique. Not as acidic as many nor as complex, but I'm going to have to see if I can find any other GRV examples as this is pleasant.

2009 Twisted Oak The Spaniard

Calaveras County Tempranillo Blend, Tempranillo more

5/22/2015 - David_T Likes this wine: 91 points

Primarily black cherry but also distinct grilled meat, blueberry, blackberry and (twisted) oak. Good balance with medium tannins and acidity and a pleasant finish. Drinking well now but no rush.

2012 François Cazin (Le Petit Chambord) Cour-Cheverny

I agree with DrWine's note. Hard to taste/score this. Dry, a touch oxidized, maybe a hint of melon but not a lot of typical distinct notes are coming through. Would probably score in the 85-87 range. Definitely unique and worth a try.

2005 Sarah's Vineyard Syrah Besson Vineyard

Santa Clara Valley more

5/18/2015 - David_T wrote: NR

This bottle is likely a bit over the hill. Still pleasant red cherry/raspberry notes though a bit sweet, light-medium acidity but no tannins. Little structure left means drink up now... would probably score it 88-89.

My last bottle, still enjoyable and matches my notes from two years ago stride for stride. Who says rose's can't age? This will definitely last through this summer, maybe even next.

2013 Ferrante Chardonnay Reserve Peter Sr. Vineyard

Grand River Valley more

5/14/2015 - David_T wrote: 84 points

Notes of baked apple, baking spice, butter, hints of tropical/stone fruit and oak.
I prefer my chards with less oak/malolactic fermentation but I know many enjoy this style. Good to know Ohio can compete with Cali examples though most of those aren't single vineyard and are $10 less. It would be nice if the vineyard's contributions to the wine would show more than the barrel's.

"Blend of 65% Verdelho, 20% each Sauvignon Blanc and Grüner Veltliner & 4% Cinsault" per the winery (109% wine ftw!)

I definitely agree with there being lots of grapefruit. Some floral/herbal notes. Light-medium acidity/minerality adds structure; fairly simple but tasty.

Unoaked. Pleasant aromas and flavors of green apple, cantaloupe, lemon/lime and herbs. Light acidity/minerality add structure. Not a lot of depth but the light yet complex flavors make it very quaffable.

Everything you want in a German riesling. Green apple, lime, a bit of lemon, minerals, off-dry with high acidity. Good structure, long finish. Great value and I'll grab more to see how it ages.

I have a high tca threshold but this came across as lightly corked. Not the classic wet cardboard but extremely muted (and not just shut down). A hint of earth/red fruit but stale. Not oxidized.

Light & refreshing with notes of strawberry & rhubarb, strong minerality and light acidity. Dry, doesn't remind me of red gamay but that just makes it more intriguing. Drink by the end of 2015.
