I like this though was expecting more. It took about 45 minutes to open but eventually broadened out. Not as luscious as other Kistler. Will wait on the remaining bottles. Lots of potential here.

Good flavors. Goes down well. Lighter than other Syrahs but tasty. Nothing overwhelming but good. Good before a steak dinner.

Great wine. Good right out of the bottle. Smooth as a baby's butt. Just lovely. Wish I had more of this vintage and later ones.

It was a little thin compared to other wines of the same vintage. Not bad but a little thin.

A lovely bouquet. Flavor is deep and excellent. Deep, full bodied. Very tasty vino. Wanted the bottle to last all evening, which unfortunately it did not..good stuff.

A beautiful cab, which probably has longer than shown here. Full cab flavors but not very intrusive tannins. Ready to go though I was confused by the drinking window on here but it appears to be accurate. A good wine. Happy to have it.

I usually prefer California pinots over Oregon because of heavier acids in some. This was delicious. Disappeared quickly. Looking forward to my 2 others. Don't hesitate
Very nice pinot.

A beautiful wine. Round with a slight butter taste but not too much. Goes down way too easily. Just delicious. Wish I had a case.

About 45 minutes to open. Dark red, almost crimson, with plenty of flavor and some character. Will save the last two for another year or two.

I opened this 2 1/2 hours before dinner and it was hard as a rock. Will wait a couple of years on future ones.
It had improved by the next day but not enough. Just too early for this one in ny view.

Absolutely delicious. To be savored before or after dinner.
Lovely against Napa cabs from 2014 and one from Washington state from 2015. Very nice balance. A beautiful wine, and lower alcohol (15%) than most. Very nice and approachable. Lovely.

Waiting for it to open while lamenting another badly broken cork. Too many of these. Decanted and looking for a strainer to get rid of the cork.
Will score later.

My second in a few days. Just lovely. Young but ready to go.
I haven't had a bad wine from here yet.
Yes Oregon is an odd place for Italian varietals but she makes great ones. Thank you.

A beautiful wine. Though high alcohol, it did not come through on the palate. Very soft especially for a syrah. A lovely wine. Wish I had more.

Beautiful wine with lamb chops. Round, tasty and easily paired. My first Zinfandel in quite some time. Lovely and reasonably priced.

Scrumptious, my fellow taster says. Very nice weight. Round, tasty wine. Vanilla and clove flavors. Wanted more when it was gone.

Nice cab. A little acid. Good after about 3 hours of air. Fine actually after 2 hours or so. Sharper than a 2007 Clarendon Sandown. But fine after a steak. Have two more. Will wait.n

A lovely wine. Medium acidity. Very flavorful with a dinner of roasted pork. Couldn't have been better. Very smooth for a relatively young wine. Delicious.

Had with fresh Salmon. The wine was crisp and savory. A perfect match for dinner. I usually drink red but loved this.

It had good ripened fruit flavors. Nice depth. Could not stop drinking it, until it was gone. Wanted another.

A beautiful wine. Easy to drink PNP. Delicious on first sip.
Much better than other 2015s. Hard to beat for an afternoon sipper.

Very burgundian on opening. A much lighter Brunello than others. On opening, my partner insists I say, it had definite licorice flavors. An excellent wine for early in the meal. Just lovely!! Changes over time.

Lovely, rich, fleshy syrah. Served with brisket which it complemented beautifully. Made for a wonderful dinner.

a little tight at first of course but evolved beautifully. Very nice flavors for a friend who likes petite sirah. After a little air, it was lovely. Served brisket which it complemented perfectly. High toned toward the end,especially against a Wash state syrah. Very nice wine. Will hold others longer but it was a great complement to the dinner.

Yes, still youthful. I would say hold but the deknking window here doesn't have much time left. Ok but not very round flavors. Some alcohol bite in the first few minutes.
Not terribly distinctive.

It was lovely on openkng. Sweet round fruit but that faded over the next two hours. What was left was fine e but it leveled off after an hour and more. Still good after 4 hours but not as sweet as the beginning.

A lovely bottle.

Good juice. After a few minutes to open, it developed more flavor. Not great but good. Lighter than most barolos though.

very nice. Good right out of the bottle. Though it tightened up an hour or two later. Beginning to soften up again two hours after opening. A lovely wine. Wish I had opened sooner.

Very dark fruit that lasted on the palate. Stronger early but very nice after it settled down. Perfect with lamb chops, a salad, a potato salad and corn chopped off the cob.
One lone bottle in my cellar. Glad I hadn't opened it. Made the meal better.

this was lovely the second day. Far more generous, with only a little bite on the back palate. Open a day ahead of time. 91+

still has a little life in it. Found it in the cellar and opened an hour later. With a little air, it opens up and smoothes out.
Nothing to write home about but ok. Drink it now.

Too young in my view. Still quite tannic which obscures the flavors lurking underneath. Not very generous yet. I will save my other bottle as long as possible.

A lovely chardonnay. Toasty, brioche and delicious. Just lovely. Probably good for another 3 to 4 years. Lovely stuff.

Better than I expected and opened up quickly. Not bad for a less expensive wine.
