2008 Bergström Pinot Noir Bergström Vineyard

Dundee Hills more

2/5/2015 - FPNova wrote: 92 points

Beautiful, rich cherry, floral and spice aromas. Rich, complexly layered red fruit flavors with a long, savoury finish. This wine is still evolving and will get better so I'll wait a year or two before opening the next bottle.

Color: Rich ruby red.
Aroma: Cherry, rhubarb & slight forest floor.
Taste: Nicely tart cherry and crisp acidity with a medium/long finish.
This wine has a lot going for it and will last much longer in the bottle; based on what I wrote 5 years ago in my Dec 2009 tasting notes the last time I opened a bottle the wine has matured very nicely and still has lots of life remaining. No need to be in any hurry if you are fortunate enough th have this in your cellar.

At 10 years of age this wine is still fresh and lively on the palette with vibrant, dark red cherry, accented with baking spices the dominant flavors. But the alcohol still overshadows the finish just a bit too much.

Bright deep red color. Red berries, spice, floral notes and a hint of licorice on the nose. Black cherry, exotic spice, cola and an earthy mouth-feel on the palate with a medium-long finish. Now is the right time to enjoy this if it's in your cellar

2004 Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

This week a group of 11 Italian wine lovers and collectors met for dinner to share several Barolo's and Brunello's over a nice Italian dinner at a local Italian restaurant. All about floral and cherry notes on the nose, this wine is so beautifully balanced and complex on the palate with an extraordinary long finish - even at this relatively young age for a Brunello. This was the favorite wine of the evening for most in our group. Bellisimo!

What an exquisite wine! Like drinking a bouquet of spring flowers plus wonderful flavors of bright red intense cherry, cola and flowers once again. THE absolute favorite wine of the evening.

Very much like last year's note except a bit more subdued fruit and a slightly heavier body with the added age. Still an excellent Valentine's Day treat.

Rich dark red. Aromas of strawberry, incense, and a little barnyard. Flavors of red berry, spice and tangerine on the smooth and crisply acidic finish. A very nice mature Sonoma Pinot Noir that has the structure to go longer.

1988 Château Lynch-Bages

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

12/21/2012 - FPNova Likes this wine: 93 points

Decanted for 2 hours and consumed over the course of several hours with other mature wines; this Lynch-Bages seemed to transform itself into a different wine every 30-40 minutes each time we returned to it. Color was deep and rich with no hint of oxidation. The first visit was disappointing with herbal green peppers dominating both the aroma and taste. After 30 minutes more the green pepper was completely gone and it was a completely different wine; aroma and taste were all about layer after layer of rich mature red fruit. Another 30 to 40 minutes and it evolved further; all about earthiness with some leather and cedar. By the final visit in another 30-40 minute it was yet a different wine, all about earthy, charcoal smokiness. Quite a lot going on in this bottle and a very wild ride over the course of several hours - more so than I have ever before experienced in one bottle of wine.
