  • 2014 Erath Pinot Noir Oregon

    I wasn't expecting too much from this mass-produced Oregon pinot noir, two bottles of which were purchased at my local Safeway grocery store. However, even so I was disappointed. A medium ruby in the glass, both nose and palate reflect a very simple, slightly tart ripe bing cherry, and little else. No spice, no earth, no candied or darker fruits; just simple cherry. There are more complex, more memorable pinot noir at even lesser price points (e.g., Bogel's version). Dutifully paired with my signature oven-finished salmon with spicy tomato vinaigrette, but in no way elevated the meal, and probably even pulled it down a bit. Not a repeat buy in this vintage.

  • 2005 Harlequin Syrah Minick Vineyard

    Tasted in a 4-syrah wine flight against 3 more recent Nota Bene syrah at the Tasting Room: Wines of Washington in Post Alley Pike Place Market Seattle. A dark purple in the glass, with slow-forming legs. The nose features blackberry, black cherry, roasted meat and oak. Good intensity and concentration, with white pepper joining in on the somewhat clipped finish. I recall enjoying the 2004 version quite a bit more. Still nice, but drink up if you are holding these.

  • 2011 Nota Bene Cellars Syrah Stonetree Vineyard Wahluke Slope

    Tasted in a 4-syrah wine flight at the Tasting Room: Wines of Washington in Post Alley Pike Place Market Seattle. A dark purple in the glass, with quick-forming legs. The nose features blackberry, black currant, dark raspberry and oak. Good intensity and concentration, with white pepper joining in on the finish. More acidity and thinner than the 2010 Columbia Valley version from this producer. Likely still very young. Nice!
