2012 Kirkland Signature Malbec

7/1/2015 - Bluecollar wrote: 88 points

Similar to past notes, with some improvement. While still bringing a lot of fruit, it is less pronounced now with clove, cinnamon, and bay leaf showing up. Still somewhat jammy and flabby, but enjoyable none the less.

Crisp with nice mineral and stone fruit flavors. Mid palate falls off sharply and simply disappears. Seems to be missing something.

Drinking very well right now, and should continue to develop. Nice red fruit and a mix of savory and woodsy notes. Long focused finish. Classic Oregon pinot without being huge or over the top.

2010 Maryhill Cabernet Franc

Soft and approachable up front with a solid foundation of tannin and structure on the back end. Somewhat fruity which quickly gives way to an earthiness mid palate. Finish is medium in length.

This is certainly living up to the previous few vintages from Syncline. Well integrated with focused flavors of cherry, strawberry, and baking spice. Their is a purity to this wine that makes it very enjoyable. Ready now or cellar.

Similar to previous note with increased integration and more earthiness in the finish. Quite nice and substantial without being a big fruity syrah. I expect it to improve

2013 Syncline Grenache-Carignan

Columbia Valley Red Blend more

5/1/2015 - Bluecollar wrote: 90 points

Like the other 2013 Syncline wines, this vintage is producing slightly lighter versions that are fine textured and very clean. This wine is no different and although not a "light wine", it is more feminine in style than the last few years. Consistent with the wine makers notes, this has a meaty characteristic and wild red fruits with hints of herbs. Finish was a little short and not building.

2007 Collelceto (Elia Palazzesi) Brunello di Montalcino

Sangiovese more

4/26/2015 - Bluecollar Likes this wine: 90 points

This one is ready to go, and although could improve some with cellaring is very approachable now with some decanting. Polished with a nice brick color and very prominent fruit of cherry, pomegranate, and strawberry. Hints of lavender and mild leather with a nice tannic structure in the background. It fails to carry in the mid pallet with a short to medium finish, otherwise this would be amazing. Very enjoyable though.

2010 Viento Pinot Noir Oakridge

Columbia Gorge more

4/21/2015 - Bluecollar wrote: 91 points

Beautiful gorge pinot. Medium bodied with floral notes and a bit of tart cherry and sweetened cranberries along with a pleasant earthiness. Tanins are slightly drying with a medium length finish. Drinking fine now and should hold or develop for a few more.

Enjoyable Rhone blend that is a terrific food wine. Lively red fruits that are projected by a bright tannins with a fare amount of spice and a hint of menthol. Medium length finish. Not terribly complex, but instead very focused on delivering the flavors it has.
Great value

Similar to past notes. Completely open from the minute you pop the cork. Black fruit that is somewhat overpowered by leather, tar, and black pepper. The backbone is soft making this a bit flabby, yet it is still pleasing to drink and has a forceful flavor profile. Time to drink up.

Finally coming into a nice drinking window. Satisfying nose of strawberry and floral notes, and flavors raspberry, clove, and a hint remaining of the earlier overpowering sour cherry. Nice balance now although a little thin and short finish.

Great value.

Delicate and quite feminine this wine is very enjoyable. Cherry in color and very pure with an aromatic floral nose. Red currant, lavender, and strawberry flavors with hints of white pepper.
Lighter and more delicate than 2012.
