Community Tasting Notes (4) Avg Score: 91.7 points

  • This is a wonderful wine. It counters the belief that Oregon wines will not age. This is the first vintage for Beaux Freres. From the moment it was poured, bacon fat aromas jumped from the glass. This was coupled with tar and licorice notes. It blossomed with tell. On the palate it gained weight with time and exploded on the midpalate. It was lush balanced still with excellent fruit and acid. It went well with duck confit and gnocci. Great effort. The wine had a lot of Burgundian character.

  • This bottle was a bit past its prime, but very nice nonetheless. It's color was still very red/brown, and its nose gave a hint or age. But the earthiness and the layered complexity of the fruit -- now in the decline -- was still evident.

  • Nice and palate show strawberry that is clearly starting to fade. Middle and finish are more earthy than fruit-driven, and the earthiness is ok but not very clean or elegant. 2-3 years past its peak.
