Flight 1 (5 Notes)

  • 2007 Roessler Pinot Noir La Brisa 91 Points

    USA, California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast

    This nose was very jammy, with a preponderance of blackberry, black currant, ad black cherry. It ended with smoked meats, licorice, and forest floor. The palate had great grip, with earthy flavors, blackberry, cherry, and a smoky finish.

    The nose had a strong aroma of pancetta. Underneath was blueberry, raspberry, smoke, and vanilla. The palate was extremely soft and fruity. There was cherry and raspberry, bacon fat, and a strong licorice finish.

  • NV Montaudon Champagne Grande Rosé Brut 90 Points

    France, Champagne

    The nose was extremely earthy - rotting bark, worms, and bramble. It also had a hint of cherry, and a bunch of yeast at the end. The palate was very lively, with a good amount of cherry fruit at the beginning that transitioned to a bread flavor, finally ending with wet stone finish.

  • 2007 King Estate 89 Points

    USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley

    The nose was heavy with tropical fruits - pineapple, and papaya mainly. There was also some pear, and a slight hint of crushed rock. The palate was almost the opposite on the nose. Mainly stone and pear upfront, with some very subtle tropical notes on the finish.

  • 2007 Borgo Magredo Friuli Grave Pinot Nero 78 Points

    Italy, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Friuli Grave

    The nose had a really subtle aspect where the aromas seemed to slowly reveal themselves. First came some cherry and blackberry. Then some spice and earth. Finally, there was an old oak smell. The palate was not as good as the nose. It was very green and bitter. It had the same fruit as the nose, but it was completely overwhelmed by the bitter flavors.

Flight 2 (2 Notes)

  • 2007 Ken Wright Pinot Noir Nysa Vineyard 89 Points

    USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley

    The nose started with a toasty oak aroma, then added cherry, and ended with a slightly spicy smell. The palate was slightly tannic, but had nice cherry fruit. It also had cassis and spice, but the finish that was a little too oaky for my taste.

  • 2006 Bouchard Père et Fils Corton-Le Corton

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Corton Grand Cru

    The nose had a strong venison aroma, along with raspberry, parsley, and forest floor. The palate was very green, and to be honest, way to young to drink. It has nice fruit, but it is little disjointed. I think it was some potential, so I'm not even going to try and give it a score.
