Actually 92++. Pop and pour. Everything you want from a cool climate Syrah, great balance, nice savory elements. Highly recommended.

2019 Paetra Riesling Willamette Valley
BD 12 purchase. Not as good as other wines from the same producer (both the dry Riesling and the Pinot Blanc, which I’ve found to be outstanding). This either needs more time or should’ve used more decanting, even though I tried this over two days. It just tasted a lot like apple juice. The acidity was too imbalanced. Too bad, because the nose on this thing is amazing.

Amazed by the divergence of opinion on this one; Explosive nose of tropical fruit and flowers; Crisp with rich fruit at the same time; Passionfruit, kiwi, lime; Clean and long finish; I honestly can’t remember the last time I had a better Sauvignon Blanc; I wish that our local Costco had the selection that a previous note writer has - there isn’t a bottle in my Costco at any price that tastes this good
