Fruity yet rustic . Very refreshing bubbly , finish just a tad short keeping this from a higher score.

Has that stuck match quality on the nose (to me. At least) , everyone else got dairy, butter. Palate quite crisp and a bit minerally with a good amount of acid. Not my supreme go to style for Chardonnay but a unique expression nonetheless .

I take my 92 back and bump it to a 93 + pointer! For an almost 10 year old bottle, and usually Janus isn’t one of my fav bottles for some reason. However , this offering held up magnificently .

Very unique , lots of umami, and ever evolving over the two days it took to finish. Not a classic, typical Wilamette Pinot. Kind of off beat for a Brooks.red fruits, ripe, stewed fruits and evn a bit volitale . Would hold if I had more from this vintage.

Pretty fresh and lively but nothing special. Probably not a rebuy even at 40$

Still a bit of life left in this one. Not much color variation to the rim, a touch of that Bordeaux dust on the nose and the palate . A bit of fruit left also, very smooth and the tannins have all but disappeared. Probably could have consumed 2 years ago fpr max pleasure but definitely wouldn’t wait any longer on this bottling.

Great taste, just kissed with barrel characteristics , although a bit lean (and just barely at that)

95++ soooo good, still a lot of life left . Bursting with sweet cherry fruit , which dominates over secondary and tertiary notes. Finish for days, wish I had a case

94++ hardly any color variation at the rim. Beautiful deep ruby color . Palate bursting with deep red and black fruit . Tannins we’ll integrated , notes of black olive, soy, a bit of cigar box, very complex . Drinking beautiful , some years to go

Considering it’s age , this bottle overdivets once again. Just as deep ruby as a ‘17 from Brooks that was poured ar the same time. Palate still full of red fruits with almost no tertiary notes at all. Again, the color and the lack of rim variation was what really had me in this one. Having Frank a bunch of there over the years .

Don’t remember drinking this bottle

Lots of oak, starting to integrate quite nicely. A bit sweet in the nose and entry. Very smooth with a fairly long finish . If it had started with more structure and tannins maybe it would have turned out a bit different . I’ll take it for under 30$ though.

Even with a great producer such as Weimar , I still prefer off dry as my fav Riesling style.

Didn’t jump out of the glass as being a non Wilamette bottling ! Very approachable now.

VERY young. Firm tannins, not harsh, good fruit and I thought it was well balanced . Definitely can come back to over the next few years

Such a beautiful nose, fruit wise didn’t translate to the palate but still a commendable effort!

Very interesting from the touch of age ! A little honeyed in the nose, fruit otherwise has faded.

Still very dark and spicy with a lot of life left in it! Masculine of a wine, needs way more time in the bottle to soften up. We’ll made for sure , just not indicative of the Valley at this point in time. Maybe that’s just how the estate bottling is.I would wait 3-5 more years on this one.

Okay maybe one of the best Chardonnays I’ve ever had. Smelled like a Wilamette valley bottling . Not so much power but super graceful . No oak detected, not back end bitterness . Just pure fruit, reminiscent of Riesling if you will. Definitely a rebuy.

Spatlese style for sure! On point varietally and stylistically . Rihht on the cusp of being upper echelon no doubt about it. Great mouthfeel from the kiss of rs and enough acid to keep it from being flabby. Medium plus finish . Rebuy at $15 ? Yes please

Still plenty of life left in this one. Is it “worth”70$ ? Yeah I don’t think so. However, on day three it was still popping! Bumped up to a 92

88+ very smooth, not vey aromatic at all. No cab franc tell tale signs to speak of, at least overtly so. Nicely done though , food friendly or as a stand alone.
