Pinot Noir more

Ruby/purple in color. Bright and young looking. There is some brett/funk on the nose which is nice but others did not like it. Also some mild macerated cherries. The palate tastes cleaner, mostly black cherries. Nice wine. Unknown pricing.

A new producer for me and a very good value. Light ruby in color. The nose is deep and has some complexity. Black cherries and some tea notes. On the palate, juicy black cherries. Firm tannins. With air, more sour cherries come out. $18

Certainly one of the best values on the night. Ruby, clear and bright. The nose is dusty with light cherries. Juicy acidity. Medium tannins. Slightly candied fruit, especially on the finish. $17 Ohio.

Good bang for the $$. Had it with white cake and berries. Pretty simple but yet had a great depth to it.

Not over sweet and quite long finish.

The groups WOTN. Slightly flat in color, ruby purple. The nose is nice, young Burgundy. A bit of slight funk, cherries, and warm. On the palate, there is a tart acidity that fades a bit with air. Mild tannins. Bing cherries. Enjoyable and will get better with a few years of ageing. $45

The first white Burgundy I had bought in likely a decade due to premox concerns. This is a Fass wine and I trust Lyle. Pop and pour did this wine a disservice. It took at least an hour to open. In fact at the beginning, most did not like it. By the end of the night, most liked it a lot. Light gold in color. The nose has a lot of sulfur. Also some green apples. On the palate, this is tart, clean with lemons. A bit odd on the finish at first in taste and drying. Wit air, this sorts out, adds some balance and drinks quite well. There is a good amount of acidity and I think food helped it as well. This was my only bottle, but I would give this lots more air or if I felt lucky, let it age for 8 years.

Very nice, rich, bright wine with some underlying austerity. Full but balanced. The poet in the room said that it smelled like the air before a sandstorm.

Revisited with white pizza with feta cheese and a Parmesan crust. Fairly salty crust. This held up well to the food. Consistent tasting notes. Pleasant, straight forward, reasonably priced food wine.

dark ripe fruity aroma
firm tannins, full bodied, fruity flavours, lacks complexity, short finish, somewhat didn't impress as expected - but I may have to taste this wine again in order to have the real impression.

Okay so straight from the bottle this was pretty decent. I decanted and it opened up again. I have to say I'm. It sure why I gave this a 94 at that time because it is definitely in that 89-91 pt range. A great daily drinker. Paired with pork, risotto and German potatoes. Now even sure what that last one. Really was supposed to be. Anyhow, you can tell the age from its color. Tannins still very nice and this will age for another 5yrs. I have a few of these sitting out at room temp to pop and pour and I'll drink them over the next yr but if you cellar these they can go 5 at least.

This is an upfront, uncomplicated and delicious Bourgogne blanc, with citrus and orchard fruits on the nose and palate, and just a hint of oak that sweeps in on the relatively short finish. The biggest thing that would make this wine really special would be a longer finish. Very, very good, drink now through 2016+.

Ety & Hanan Shahaf daughter's wedding (Liron) (Mishmar Hanegev (and on the way)): P&P from a magnum in a minibus on the way to Ety & Hanan's daughter wedding (Liron)
It's a pity that this great wine wasn't decanted ahead.

Very dark red colour.
Gorgeous nose with lots of delicious funk and earthiness, florals, dark raspberry, leather, sandalwood, spices, licorice.
The palate was on an inferior level compared to the nose. Lean and dry on the palate with earth, minerals, raspberries and cherry, leather, licorice, medium-full body and medium finish.
Can further age many large, especially when in large formats.

Light golden yellow
fine subtle quality tropical & citrus fruits aroma and flavours, excellent acidity, light-medium bodied, well structured, well balanced, rich minerality, significant saltiness, delicate very long finish.
Well done for an unoaked Chardonnay.
This wine is less impressive when drunk after uncorking. But after 24 hours it's much better.
Value for money wine!
