Nothing really to write about on this one but it was pleasant and not astringent like many of the Sauv Blancs I have drank.

We tried this one right away to see what it was doing. The first day was very tannic and not good. Day 2 and 3 was much better as the tannins dropped off and some of the fruit stared showing. This wine may be drinkable now but I'm more inclined to wait a few more years and be more toward the 2034 date. Should be no problem considering the structure of this wine.

2006 Maple Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir Barrel Aged

Umpqua Valley more

So we have been going through MRV Pinot Noirs and it has been 5 years since we last tried it, this is the one. Beautiful cherry and strawberry with good acidity and minerality that we love about MRV wines. Nice balance and light tannins at this time with a very long pleasant finish so I would say that the balance is perfect now. I would highly recommend that you try one of these now if you have one. Probably peaking at this time so enjoy it if you have been holding it.

Spritzy from the beginning but have no idea why. Fruit is gone and very acidic. I would drink this now if I had it.

Nice acidity still some fruit. I would drink this now if you have it based on the 2004 Pinot which has lost most of its fruit.

2009 World's End Cabernet Franc Against The Wind Reserve

Napa Valley more

4/11/2015 - Ron&nina Likes this wine: 93 points

This is a really nice Cab Franc. Lots of nice fruit, tannins and soft on the pallet. Good balance. Fruit does not appear to be over ripe and the alcohol levels are high but in balance also. We drank this wine over 3 days and each day was a little better. I think I would like to leave my other bottle for a few more years.

Probably good value but really not a good wine. Little to no nose that I would expect to get from a gewürztraminer and it is way too hot, overpowering the delicate favors of the wine.

2009 Inglenook / Rubicon Estate / Niebaum-Coppola Cabernet Sauvignon Cask

Rutherford more

4/2/2015 - Ron&nina Likes this wine: 88 points

Single dimensional, VERY tannic at this point. I would not drink this wine at this point. Dark ripe fruit with a little cherry but masked by the tannins. Will try this tomorrow to see if it is better but right now it needs time. Tried it again on the 2nd day, not much better. Tried it today on the 4th day and the tannins are really starting to soften now. Much better balance between fruit and tannins.

Pineapple, peach, pear, honeysuckle and caramel. Nutty component with deep rich flavors. Probably a bit oxidized. We like this viognier but we are not viognier fans so it is probably not varietally correct. However we do like this wine.

Very fine mousse and light and fine to the palette with soft mouth feel. Creamy and nutty. This is a very fine sparkling wine that deserves consideration. If you like fine sparkling wines, this should be on your list.

Overall we liked this wine but it was a little tight when first opened. Liked it much better a couple hours later. Decent fruit and good acidity. Very typical chard nose and flavors for this style. Definitely doesn't need to be drank now unless you really like fruity chards.
