2010 Lachini Pinot Noir Lachini Family Estate

Chehalem Mountains more

Passable pinot. Contained within a range of serviceable fruit, thin notes of cherries, stewed strawberries and tannic structure. Hard to recall much else

Enjoyable but not arrestingly delicious. No dents in the car, but it won't get parked in the front by the valet. Hints of cinnamon and bing cherries. Oak and vanilla in nose.

Surprised by the minerality over the sweetness. Notes of slate and stone with traces of apricot, honeysuckle, citrus peel. Enjoyable.

Luscious. Conversation stopper. Beautiful full mouth richness finishes a glazed pear butter citrus peel symphony of flavors. Deep golden hue. The wine excites all the senses. I must find more.

Nice flavors of cherry, hint of deeper cassis and well rounded mouth feel make this as much a winner as a chicken dinner. Gobble it up.

Nails on chalkboard. Wine that triggers a headache. Extracted and missing the mark. Tightly wound. Drank better after a day of rest, but nothing to write sonnets about. Plunk.

Like others from this vintage in CA, beautiful results. More harvest than winemaker with high notes of cassis and berries supported by a lattice work of tannin, terroir, vanilla, trace of oak.

More subtle than a rose, light acidity, citrus zest flavors. Nicely paired with Thai food.

Awesome juice. A meal and memory in itself. Excellent expression of cassis, blackberry, currant with tannin, leather, and superb structure. A joy.

Enjoyable wine brimming with cassis and dark cherries. Agree with other comments that more time would be beneficial to round out the acid and further integrate the tannins.

Full notes of plum and cherries with hints of nutmeg and cinnamon. 14.5 alcohol extremely well integrated. Little heat although overall impression of wine a bit dull or muted at the margin. Can't tell if this is alcohol or over prime window of drinking.

Better since my previous tasting. More depth to the cherry notes and lingering but present tannin structure. Aromas of fig, cinnamon, and cola nut. Pleasant, light Pinot.

Lighter pinot but well constructed on the palette and in the nose. Notes of leather, cedar, vanilla aromas followed by strawberries, cherries, oak, and tobacco tannins. Slim and trim. Enjoyable.

2008 Rockledge Vineyards Merlot The Rocks

Napa Valley more

12/14/2014 - atl10trader Likes this wine: 92 points

Deep notes of brambly blackberry cobbler, cassis, and plum. Tannins provide the architecture and carry this impressively bold but not thick or heavy wine to a great finish. Exceeded expectations.

2006 Bugay Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon The Empress

Sonoma County more

12/13/2014 - atl10trader Likes this wine: 94 points

Big curvaceous wine deserving of its own chair at the table. Luscious notes of cassis, blueberry, blackberry, and integrated terroir of leather, oak - all held together through the mid palette and to the finish. Silk without being slippery. Smooth enough to know its mellowed with age. Decant and wait to see it develop over the evening. Drinking prime time.
