Wow. This baby is now drinking very good. Mouthwatering and great concentration. A joy to drink. Drank with a friend from Germany who enjoys good eiswein and he too just loved this. Judging from previous reviews, I had lower expectations for this wine, but was genuinely surprised.
2002 Oregon Pinot Retro + Port/Madeira (JV's): An odd wine that I had in the cellar, so I threw it in (like a bit of sorbet before the next course). It is made from Pinot Noir grapes cryogenically frozen. Rose in color. The nose is lemony, tomatoes and some simple syrup. A bit cloying on the palate for my tastes. Some cherries and citrus on the finish. I know some who would like this. It is good and different, but a taste was plenty for me.
An interesting wine indeed. Striking notes of strawberry sauce on the palate. Seems a little less fresh than last year, especially on the nose. Would go nicely with a strawberry gelato, or, even better, with raspberry macaroons! Drink well chilled. 8% ABV. 88-90
Gorgous color of copper/pink salmon irridescent. Nose is peach, apricot. Flavors follow with mouth coating sweetness. Enough acidity to not be cloying and to hold the finish. REally good and interesting little wine.
