Perfectly timed on uncorking this one. High alcohol content (16.9%!) was well hidden...balanced and integrated in this rich, dark, velvety Zin. Essentially it was desert in a bottle. Exceeded expectations.

Pales only because I just drank its brother Nuits St George's '04. Cloudy, straw...not as balanced as the NSG but delicious.

Expressive nose, butter and limestone in the mouth, medium acid, nice long finish. A unique bottle of grape juice.

I do believe this vintage is officially ready to drink...very aromatic, deep, rich cherry all over this one. Not sweet but drinks like candy.

Great aromatics, dark fruit, lots of black and white pepper, lil baking spice...if this wine had more structure/backbone giving it a better finish, could have been great.

Great fragrant nose, rich fruit up front, nice pepper flare, smooth and marvelously balanced. Fruit burned off after a little time, which made it even better.

I give it a 92 for the first 90 minutes and a 89 after that (seems bass ackwards). Awesome, big nose of funky earth and a mouthful of black fruit, pepper and dirt. Lost the earth and went all fruit after lots of oxygen which wasn't as rewarding for me but still a great wine. Ready!

Dark fruit, pencil, tobacco - more fruit driven than I remember. 2 bottles this week and something felt slightly askew... but still delicious.

Outstanding nose. It's alive!

Dark, candied cherry, spice, earth (lil pine?) made me want to sniff it as much as drink it. Cloudy, unfiltered and thoroughly delicious.

Stellar nose - earth, mushroom, dark berry, iron, delicate and moderately feminine in the mouth but a nice long finish. Maybe on the young side?

2011 Samuel Robert Winery Pinot Noir

Willamette Valley more

5/5/2013 - Soundcaresser wrote: 85 points

Slow learner. 2+ hours before it showed its self. Lacking aromatics, missing complexity in the mouth, pepper and tart fruit on the finish. Started to feel like a willamette Pinot 2 hours in. Still a nice wine at 15 bones but hoping its potential is greater.

A beautiful heavy silky texture, very smooth through and through. Red fruits, on the simple side but the mouth feel made up for it.

A tucking stud. Incredible nose. Dirt, pencil eraser, rubber, spice and cherry - soft in the mouth but perfectly balanced firmer tannins on the finish. Terroir for days.

Pushing the limits of waking the oak monster, cassis...would have loved to taste this wine blind, preconceived notions abound. Kinda felt like the napa/Bordeaux mutt that it is. Certainly can't complain, just not entirely convinced at this price point.
