Consistent with previous notes. Purple color is mellowing but flavors still singing with a full voice.

2012 Loring Wine Company Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard

Shows considerable improvement over the last bottle opened (July 2014). The prior bottle was very tight, tannic and not in balance, but none of this was surprising for a wine so young. Given time, I saw a good amount of potential in it (and scored it more on that potential) and have now been fully rewarded. Rose and intense blackfruit on the nose. Somewhere between medium and full bodied with great richness and density. Very pretty black raspberry and black cherry flavors with very good balancing acidity throughout. There's a lot of fruit here, but it never goes over the top. Much smoother and more integrated than I remember from last July, but with enough structure to suggest that this wine should continue to improve with peak still to come.

Tasted non blind.

Garnet to dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of birch, Kirsch, flowers and berries. Flavors of boysenberries, plums and cherries. Tangy acidity, medium tannin, full bodied. Drink with air or hold.

Very nice and drinking well. Quite the inky purple wine. Adequate nose. Very plush black and blue ripe and integrated fruit. Still with tannins and alcohol. Bold and beautiful. Long and very nice finish.

Good everyday quaffer. Great fruit, better as an aperitif than with food. Unless the food is very mild - fish, chicken, etc. Excellent values.

so delicious!! Fantastic nose, truly inviting. Great flavors, truly a large, sophisticated Pinot. My wife loved it, and is not a Pinot fan, so this is saying something. Had a Shafer one point five after, and this Pinot was better.

Definitely seek out !!!

2009 Roar Syrah Garys' Vineyard

Santa Lucia Highlands more

6/19/2015 - Screameagle Likes this wine: 92 points

A well made syrah that is just beginning to reach maturity and could even improve over the coming few years and then hold for another 10 years or more. I love the Roar syrahs and this one is no exception. A perfect example of what an excellent cool weather syrah should taste like. Bravo.

Dark crimson in color, this wine shows well focused and intense aromas of raspberry, black cherry and cardamom. The mouth feel was firm with hints of minerals, wild cherry, firm acidity and medium tannins. The finish was long in length with intense red/black fruits that intertwined beautifully with the copious levels of acidity. A winner.

Purchased for $44US, this is a gorgeous offering that is already drinking well now. I'll definitely look for more of this. Bravo.

Deep ruby with some browning at the meniscus, round and balanced in bouquet and flavor, expressing the SLH terroir, mixed red fruits on the palate, with cinnamon and clove and vanilla, lively acid, medium finish. Charming but perhaps a bit past her prime.

This had a reductive almost oxidized quality. Very ripe but tasted like it had been opened too long. Not really very pleasant to drink. One dimensional. Had never experienced this with KB before. I would drink these if I had them. They are not going to improve and will probably get worse.

Stored for 9 years in cellar at 55F, popped and poured BYO at restaurant. Dark color. Wonderful blackberry bouquet on opening. Medium-full bodied palate, medium integrated tannins. This is not your typical pinot noir as there are some syrah characteristics (absent the spiciness).

Blackberry fruit dominant, not much else going in terms of complexity of flavors. Good length, about 7 sec finish. In mid-drinking window and can keep for many years more. Overall a good but not great wine.
