Wine still offered fruit forward quality but structure had broken down somewhat and didn’t offer the nuances that I had remembered at purchase.

Waited too long to open and had cork issues. That said, silk retained a silky texture but flavor profile was somewhat obscured.

Decided to use this young Pinot for cooking and serve the balance with our meal. Having been opened earlier in the evening, it really blossomed from the extra exposure. We drank this vintage about a month ago and the nose, mouthfeel etc was much tighter. Really enjoyed the extra texture and character that developed. Wish I had more!

Good acidity but not much character. Received as a gift but doesn’t compare to Kim Crawford or Oyster Bay from same region.

Superb burgundy that has held up well during cellaring. Notes of toasted almonds and nutmeg but well balanced with enough acidity to pair well with Shrimp etoufee.

Williamette Pinot that shows promise, but still drinking a bit tight. Might be too young.

My low score is not a reflection of the wine. Waited to long to drink and the structure folded and the fruit was diminished. What a waste!

Soft Pinot noir with red fruit notes. Paired with grilled veal chops. Perhaps wine would have been better enjoyed a bit sooner

This wine has aged beautifully. Tasted from my Coravin a month ago and polished off tonight paired with eggplant Parmesan. Full bodied Russian River Pinot with plum notes and excellent acidity. Hasn’t lost a beat in cellaring.

So wish I had more of this well balanced Bordeaux wine from Miner. Cellaring really brought out plum notes...structure was outstanding and paired well with bbq chicken...enough heft to hold up to smokiness of the meat without overpowering it.

DeLoach Pinot features boisterous red fruit from Russian River. Thanks to Coravin, I was able to enjoy this wine over several nights without the wine breaking down.

Very enjoyable Syrah from Flam. Fruit forward with good structure. Not as earthy as French syrahs but paired beautifully with middle eastern chicken for our Seder meal.

Fruit forward Syrah that wasn’t particularly nuanced but pleasant mouthfeel of dark fruit. Definitely improved after breathing for an hour.

Opened this older wine for cooking. Has lost some of the structure and fruit forward character of this wine. Wish I had enjoyed this last bottle while still in its prime.

Medium bodied Chard with good balance and acidity that nicely complemented Chicken stew with herbed biscuits. Not overly oaky, but nice notes of honeysuckle, nutmeg and cloves that paired well with the creamy yet textural quality of the stew.

Served this medium bodied burgandy with pimento cheese hours d’oeuvres. Had the complexity and heft to hold up with the strong flavors in the cheese. Would recommend this wine for its versatility as well.
