  • 2005 Frédéric Magnien Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Brulees

    Man I'm sad to see these two go, as this really needs another 5-10 years to reach its apogee. Lots going on here: complexity, Vosne spice, structure, fantastic balance, velvet in the mouth, but still a boatload of tannin left. Maybe this is just an overlooked producer, but he really nailed it this year. Wish I waited, but alas...likely a 94 in another 3-4 years.

  • 2009 Fratelli Brovia Barolo Villero

    Very good Barolo here. Elegant, great balance, and enough complexity to lead me to believe this will develop nicely. Nice cherry flavors, some rose/tar, spices, and a hint of vanilla, although not enough to scream that this has seen new oak. Tannins are manageable, and while this has structure, I don't think this is a 25+ year Barolo - probably a 5-10 year drinker. I think this may shut down soon as the nose started to close after 45 minutes of air, and would give it another 2-3 years before revisiting.

  • 2011 Evening Land Vineyards Pinot Noir La Source Seven Springs Vineyard

    PnP and then revisit 24 hours later. Clearly a lot of good going on here (fruit, flavors), and unfortunately a fair bit of bad as well, knocking this out of the very good range for me. I think the vintage hurt here as there's not enough fruit, and definitely not enough structure to support the oak, which sticks out. There's a chance it integrates with time, but my money's not on this one given the lack of concentration from 2011. I have a second bottle and will give it a few years, but I don't see this evolving like a well-balanced Burgundy as others have noted. It just doesn't have the finesse, balance or structure. Again, not bad as the fruit is of good quality, and for $26 it's actually pretty darn serviceable for domestic pinot noir.
