    6/15/2015 3:42:00 PM - Arthrovine - in response to your question re: 2009 White Rose's "White Rose Estate" bottling, I think it'll go three more. As to five, that'd be 2020, and I don't have enough experience with Willamette wines older than 10 yrs to say. There was not a lot of spice or other complexity that made me think it will have something left when the fruit diminishes. But, I plan to hold my two other bottles for that long to build experience.

    2/23/2015 10:21:00 PM - To arthrovine- Thanks for your response re the 2006 Don Melchor. It's difficult to answer your question as to a finite drinking window. As I mentioned, the wine is soft and velvety. Obviously, it's drinking well now and easily has years left. Similar to the 1982 Bordeaux, one would seemingly think it has low acid. But, in reality the stuffing is there to disguise the actual acid intensity and thus make it a long lived wine. I've followed your notes over the years too - I appreciate the completeness of your note content. All the Best, Chainthroer

    12/9/2014 7:43:00 AM - Your comment brings up a GREAT question! At what point do you call a bottle flawed when it doesn't meet your expectations? The '02 Broadley had no off flavors or aroma/bouquet. Completely drinkable, just "no nose". There's always been a temptation in our blind tastings to label wines as flawed any time you take the bag off something that SHOULD have been wonderful. "Maybe the storage was bad", "maybe it's lightly corked", "maybe whatever" I'm not so sure...if I can drink it I give it a score. Cheers! Mark
