2008 No Girls Syrah

Walla Walla Valley more

2/18/2015 - curtispomeroy Does not like this wine: 85 points

I didn't particularly care for this wine. Found it to be rather atypical for syrahs from this producer/region and, worst of all, it wasn't very interesting or pleasurable to drink. Tried the last glass two days later and it hadn't improved for me.

First bottle from the case I bought 7 years ago. Decanted for about 2 hours and then refilled bottle to take to restaurant where we didn't drink it until about 4 hours after the cork was pulled. Still seemed pretty tight to me with not much being given up on the nose or palate. Will wait another year before opening bottle 2.

This was our first half-bottle from the case and it is ready to go. Wife commented at least half a dozen times: "This wine is good." She typically does not comment much on our wines so this is high praise. More delicious than complex.

3/8/2014 - curtispomeroy Does not like this wine: NR

I don't know what this wine was supposed to taste like but I do know that I don't like it. Supposedly this is a blend of syrah, merlot and viognier but I get very little on the nose and then not more than a whole mouthful of acidity. No sign of any tannin. Tried again on day two and the experience was the same so down the drain it went.

2008 Shea Wine Cellars Pinot Noir Block 7 Shea Vineyard

Willamette Valley more

2/26/2014 - curtispomeroy wrote: NR

I poured this on Saturday for a blind tasting party at our house. It is no understatement that this wine very much underwhelmed the crowd. It was giving up some aromatics but very little fruit on the palate even tough it had been decanted for several hours. I corked the remains and put it in the frig until Tuesday night. Finally the fruit emerged and it was very enjoyable to drink. Suffice to say I am not going open the next bottle for several years.

A big Aussie shiraz but it came across as being very well balanced with miles still to go.

A wonderful WA state Bordeaux-style blend. I found myself continually topping up my glass so that it wouldn't be empty. Not sure it will get any better with time so drink up and enjoy.

This bottle was rather underwhelming over two nights. Nothing about it was "wrong" but it certainly did not press any buttons.

Served at a family BBQ and at the end of the evening there was still wine left in the bottle while other bottles were drained. Nothing particularly "wrong" with this wine, just fails to leave much of an impression.
