Damn, this has turned out to be one sexy Pinot. Fruit dominates the nose, then the palate is just so well balanced with plum, cola, mellow acidity. Texture is awesome today, I would drink them if you are still holding.
A Few Older Oregon Pinots; 4/6/2013-4/12/2013: Decanted 2 hours. A chunk of firm sediment. Medium-dark with a hint of amber at the clear rim. Dark fruit, medicinal herbs and some smoky spices on the nose. Ripe, rich and velvety flavors include black cherry preserves, dark chocolate, raspberry and an attractive savory element. Sweet and luscious with a touch of tannin, this full-bodied wine wine is a real crowd-pleaser that probably won't be getting any better. Drink soon.
Kind of forgot about this one in the cellar. Holding up okay - little bricking in the color, nose has some faint blackberry. Tannins are resolved and the wine slids down easy. No real complexity on the nose or palate, but easy drinking. Don' think it has anywhere to go - drink up!
Decanted a 375ml for 2 hours. Rusted red and bright ruby hues. Lacking in the nose perhaps due to it's age, but aromas do hint at maturity. Nice legs. Brown sugar, earthy forest floor, cherry, and strawberry on the palate. Medium to long finish. 375ml likely past peak, but 750ml may be drinking better...
Sineann wines and whole bunch of other stuff (Our home): This got a lot of wows. This is really in a nice zone right now. Two bottles were opened and drained. The nose is wonderful with cherries, cherry juice, funk, slight damp forest floor notes. Still on the younger side of mature but entering a plateau where if you have a bunch, these should be looked at. Nice acidity. Clearly, IMO, of Oregon, and as good as 95% of anything I ever had out of Burgundy. JM2C.
