Community Tasting Notes 14

April 3, 2016 - Light to medium translucent ruby. Nose of smokey oak, tart cherry, earth and maybe a hint of coffee. Weightier on the palate than the wine looks. Nice rounded flavors, a bit racy and a bit peppery. Good depth and balance. Great with a pan seared veal chop. Lots of cherry on the finish. A little unusual but not overdone in any way and interesting layers of flavor.
July 31, 2013 - 2013 Post IPNC Tasting of 2004 OR Pinot (Matello Winery): Soaring, amazing nose! tons of dried flowers and herbs, everything from rosemary to roses. I could have spent the rest of the afternoon nosing this wine and been perfectly happy. Worth the price of admission just to smell it. On the palette, great earthy, Burgundian feel. a bit dirty, but in the right way. I'd score this wine very highly. Not sure it will evolve much more though, it's just in a spectacular place right now. Easily my wine of the flight and my wine of the night. I guessed Evesham Wood Cuvee J (and was obviously wrong).1 person found this helpful Comments (1)

July 29, 2013 - Post IPNC blind 2004 Oregon Pinot Noir tasting (Matello): Tasted at a large 2004 Oregon Pinot Noir tasting, this was easily my wine of the night. The nose was practically jumping out of the glass, spiced cherries, cola, pie cherry and ripe grapefruit. On the palate, youthful flavors of spiced ripe cherries, strawberry and grapefruit. As the wine finishes, some richness from age is apparent. Weighty palate but balanced as far as flavor intensity and structure. Long, linear finish. This wine was on another level from the wines in this flight, and the entire tasting. Absolutely wonderful. 93+

July 20, 2013 - Light to medium garnet as Pinot noir based wines should be in my opinion. Nose is of cherry, toasty oak and a hint of tobacco. Reasonable life left I think. Palate was smooth and rich reflecting the nose with some added spice box and chocolate. Nice complexity and length.
