Consistent with previous note.

Quite Rombauerish, it actually reminds me of Rombauer chardonnay from years ago when they were even heavier than they are today. Lots of spicy oak and butter, toasted.

This was thrown in at the end of a brunch tasting. It has a combination of richness and incredible acid. There is butte in the background. I like this wine a lot and would like to see how it ages. 92+

2013 Buena Vista Pinot Noir Private Reserve USA, California, Sonoma County
88 points
This wine appeared quite big and young today without a decant. It was not that exciting.
2010 Rivers-Marie Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast USA, California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast
91 points
Consistent with previous note, although the 2009 Silver Eagle was much better than this last week.
2012 Westrey Pinot Noir Cuvée 20 USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley, Dundee Hills
92 points
A couple small pours at a tasting. Animal musk, wild-smelling, big tannins for a pinot. Dark brooding fruit. This was an interesting pinot and fun to drink.
