Fairly one dimensional, maybe a bit too much alcohol on the nose. Not as silky as I'd like.

A little hot seeming on the nose and first taste, but great flavors of cherries and berries throughout. Pretty classic Rioja style.

Crisp. Maybe a bit of apricot. Beautiful with sushi. Almost sweet without it.

Thoroughly enjoyed this wine. Spicy finish that lingers just enough, a bit of dryness throughout, and all fruit. No random anything.

Cherries on the end of the nose, a bit more leather than expected. Really liked this.

2013 Dolan & Weiss Pinot Grigio Julia's Dazzle Rosé Benches Vineyard

Horse Heaven Hills more

7/25/2014 - tombiro Does not like this wine: 85 points

This is one of my least favorite roses in awhile. The color is enjoyable and attractive, the nose was nice, but the bite up front want expected and there's a bit more alcohol than I would have liked as well. Mid was decent, good fruit, but he finish wasn't anything amazing. It didn't grow on me.

I may be feeling generous with an 85.

2009 Chateau Ste. Michelle Syrah Ethos Reserve

Columbia Valley more

6/29/2014 - tombiro wrote: 91 points

Very enjoyable. Extremely hot on first taste, but leveled off after 20 minutes in a decanter. Some cherries on the mouth, a bit spicy as well. Level, almost unassuming, nose. Wish I had another bottle!

Dark, good pepper to it. Even softer than the bottle we had a year earlier. Went well with salmon and chicken. One of the better Chateau Ste Michelle wines I've had in awhile.

2008 Trust Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley

3/18/2014 - tombiro wrote: 84 points

Solid nose, but lighter than my preference. Extremely soft but not weak on the mouth. Feels too satiny for what a WA Cab usually entails.

Super super light in color. A small amount of strawberry on the palate and a tiny amount of spice on the nose.

1997 Fontanafredda Barolo Paiagallo La Villa

Nebbiolo more

11/15/2013 - tombiro Likes this wine: 89 points

This bottle took a pretty long time to open up, and felt a bit chemical in the first 30-45 minutes of being awakened. That said, it complemented a meal of kohlrabi and radish salad and a tajarin ragu beautifully. Fairly dark, long finish. Will give the second bottle we have a good hour or two open, if not more.

2007 Mario Pelassa Barolo

Nebbiolo more

Definitely needs a minute open. Not typical. Actually got cigarettes on the end of the nose upon opening (not really "tobacco"). Finished beautifully. Dark roses and a bit of brooding attitude after an hour open.

Extremely surprising at a young age. 100% Syrah, beautifully silky, firm with food, and not at all too hot at 14.7% alcohol.

2007 Turley Zinfandel Dogtown Vineyard

Lodi more

11/6/2013 - tombiro Likes this wine: 90 points

Definitely some jammy notes on the nose, really enjoyed that. Decanted and let sit for 20+ minutes before drinking (couldn't resist). Nailed my guess on alcohol (it's high) but not at all overpowering, telling me maybe it's softened nicely a bit with a few years on it. Went beautifully with a rare hamburger, black cod and even the last bite of homemade pumpkin ice cream.

Amazingly bright, almost orange. Grapefruit nose, but not overwhelmingly so. Solid flavors chilled or room temperature. A solid sipper.

Smoother than expected, ultimately. Enjoyed in warm, humid location and avoided condensation on our glasses when possible. Opened up nicely after 1.5 hours.

2008 Sonoris Cabernet Sauvignon Burney's Blend

8/24/2013 - tombiro wrote: 86 points

Just okay. A bit hot on the nose at the open (it's 14.8%) but it calmed down a bit after 30-40 minutes open. Nothing crazy on the mouth, maybe some dark berries, but coffee on the nose and I really like it. WAY short finish. Great color.
