2011 Maison Ilan Volnay 1er Cru Les Robardelles

Pinot Noir more

7/29/2015 - duchamp wrote: 91 points

Medium ruby, big nose dominated by char but with black cherry, red cherry and iron undertones, clean and bright on the attack followed by spicy red fruit, velvety tannins and floral lift, finish is long and complex with wood, soda, dark berries, tangy acidity and more

Lots of comments about "mercaptans," and yes there is a distinct smokey character to the nose but, in my opinion, not off putting. More benzenemethanethiol than methanethiol. But what do I know.

2002 Louis Jadot Pommard 1er Cru Les Rugiens

Pinot Noir more

7/29/2015 - qryan Likes this wine: 91 points

Beautiful nose. Palate is still a bit shy and unresolved, but some pretty brambly fruits are starting to peek out. Savory hints of beetroot. Not much of the 02 sweetness, but this is going to be pretty elegant in the next few years. I love Jadot's Rugiens as one of the values of the portfolio and this is no different. That said, this is nowhere near as good as the spectacular 05.

Figured it would be over the hill but NO! Dark purple color with edges of light brown. Heavy jam on the nose but light and delicate strawberry fruit on the palate.

Very fine and delicate wine, the only drawback being the high alcohol content.

2009 Navarro Vineyards Pinot Noir "Méthode à l'Ancienne"

Solid QPR, but a little thin in spots and overall rough around the edges. Nice bing cherries, baking spices, and Cherry Coca-Cola on the palate, but the finish eviscerates. Still, held up nicely to grilled chicken. Best with food and before 2017.

Darker and more dense than most WS wines, which is fine with me. This wine has more years left.

2010 Small Vines Wines Pinot Noir MK Vineyard

Sonoma Coast more

7/29/2015 - msuwright Likes this wine: 89 points

A decent coastal pinot that tastes like a village-level Burgundy from a so-so vintage. Nice nose of cherry and violet; medium in body; light red in color. Tastes of sour cherry and straw, with a streak of acidity that is well-integrated with the fruit. 14.1% alcohol. There is nothing wrong with this wine, but there is not a lot that is exciting, either. Drink now or 2016.

2010 Walter Hansel Winery Pinot Noir The North Slope Vineyard

Russian River Valley more

7/29/2015 - Ex-Ray Likes this wine: 95 points

More like a great Burgundy than the vast majority of Burgundies! Ruby-garnet, translucent. Immediate complex Burgundian aroma like a fine Dujac, strawberries-raspberries, smoke, toasty oak, quite elegant. Medium-full on the palate, with flavors mirroring the nose, very smooth, balanced, and delicious. Long sweet aftertaste. Our last bottle of almost three cases, and we've loved every bottle, probably our favorite pinot noir. Currently at Costco for $33, an excellent price. We'll start on the 2012's, which hopefully should be equally good.

A great wine... Very similar note to my tasting on 2/15/15. Only difference this time is the finish had a little prickle on the finish. Not sure if it was bottle variation because I've had this exact wine from the same case about 6 times and this experience was a first. Nevertheless, a great Burg!

Entering a nice drinking window. Consumed over two days. Nice depth of palate, good nose, good balance, clean finish. A typical Gevrey that shows premier class and structure, this remains youthful and can go for many more years.

PnP. Medium ruby. Complex nose of blood orange and spice - lovely balance between fruit and more complexity. Velvety palate feel with no tannins to resolve. Drinking well - no reason to wait.

2010 Kosta Browne Pinot Noir Russian River Valley

7/29/2015 - mmcdds Likes this wine: 90 points

I was going to give this a negative review because shortly after opening I found it to be hollow and flat, but after about 2 1/2 hours of air, it opened nicely displaying rich, peppery red fruit, Asian spice and abit of earth. In this bottle there really were little to no tannins to speak of and the fairly low acidity left the midpalate feeling abit hollow. While I usually like my PN with 6 or more years on it to mellow the fruit, I'm not sure that I didn't enjoy this more a couple of years ago when the fruit was brighter, but all in all this was quite delightful.

this bottle sat on the counter for a couple of weeks unopened. the first night opened it was nothing spectacular - a let down. the second night, the flavors were in full dance costume ... a tasty dance for sure, and very enjoyable. wish i would have opened it one night and left it until the next night
