nose of earth and leather shoes. palate has old school dusty cherries. This bottle is on its downturn, but still has plenty of life for enjoyment.

I liked this a lot. A nice mix of modern and classic Bordeaux. Full bodied and loads of stuffing and energy. I would love to taste this in 10 years; ad again in 20.

violets in abundance here. So feminine and utterly delicious. Drinking well right now which makes think of revising drinking windows to now and within next few years. I need to crack open more of these.

Biggish and fuller wine with excellent balance. definite oak treatment noticeable but in balance. Deeper yellow color. pronounced and appealing nose.

Very likeable. At first, a bit tight and green, with air more orchard fruit, but very discreet with minerals and acidity in balance and prominence. With further air some oak showing on palate - but very faint. Nicely done.

2 hour decant. Very nice but not too specific of sight and Chambolle. A bit glossy and smooth - but it was very tasty. Raspberry and cherry - sweeter in style fruit. Great balance. Just easy to drink. Worth the price? Not really - but such is the price to drink Chambolle.

last bottle of three and by far the best. with a lot of air it is seamless and tastes like the prettiest of CDRs. floral, pure fruits, not much in tannins, but just wonderful with a chill.

this was nice. a lighter profile. Sweet with baked apple, caramel, orange peel. Just enough acidity to keep this balanced. Nice finish.

This is an exceptional rose, but actually it is far too dark to be considered a rose - such an incredible amount of perfume, lavender and tart berries. Love this wine.

If I had this blind I would be tempted to say it tastes like a cool vintage bedrock blend. It has power, acidity, pronounced purple fruits, and a warmth to it. Doesn't really strike me as Bordeaux, but it is still a nice drink.

Try fruit never really comes forefront and his caged behind a mildly annoying wall of tannins. I do not see this improving. Disappointing for the vineyard.

with air, this has some weight. drinks a bit more cali than oregon meaning riper and fuller. But there is wonderful balance and acidity that makes the fruit in perfect balance. I am liking this for what it is.

reserved at first, some primary fruit, tasting like northern cali restrained pinot, but there is a pure dusty burgundian cherry on the end. Nicely integrated. very fine tannins. seem like a short to mid term drinker.

These wines from LL continue to remind me of Cru Beaujolais. This starts out primary and has a grapey quality that appears simple at first. With air, there are floral elements and a tense mineral streak underneath. Looking forward to 2nd day to see if there are changes/development. @nd day - more integrated - taste profile still the same, which is a good thing. A bit grapey - will say that is due to youth.

more structured than it lets on. biting acidity for a long time and then with ample air, it begins to show that lovely dusty cherry attribute that I look for in chianti. Give it a few more years, or just allow a long slow ox/decant.
A lot of bang for your buck here.

Very enjoyable. Earth tones fed berry and black cherry. nice burgundian fruit with plenty acidity. Not overly complex, but gulpable.

Needs a lot of air, but this really shines as a fruit driven minerally infused powerhouse with a healthy dose of anthill acidity

prominent acidity with a fuller profile of crunchy red berried fruit. Not overly complex, but certainly tasty and well made and hits the spot for a NW pinot hankering.

This is an easy re-buy for me. A very nice deep dusty Nebby type cherry that is irresistible. Wine is a touch rustic, but so what... so darn tasty.

kind of aged beef smell going on along with candied cherry - like ludens cough drop cherry. The palate is sort of thin and I think this is past its prime, but will give it some more air and see what happens.

some reduction, and some oak - but the acidity and overall balance keeps this in check. A bigger wine, with some time ahead of it.

This took its sweet time to open up. At first, it had sour cherries and a bit an astringency but still in balance. The last glass, after a few hours had blossomed. The cherry became deeper. earth tones kicked in. acidity faded in background but provided structure. Really good juice here. Could easily go another 5-10 years.

structured and solidly built wine. Takes some air to open up but this is a beauty. Typical Bedrock Cali - but what balance. Would think this could age easily for another 7+ years.
