2011 Clos Pepe Estate Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills

I have said countless times that Clos Pepe is one of my favorite Pinot (and Chard) producers, and I have also lamented the fact that the winery is no more. Wes' passion and talent lives on, though, in the several odd cases of Clos Pepe that lie peacefully in my cellar. Tonight, Thanksgiving, we decided to awaken one from its slumber for sacrifice. Dark cherry and eucalyptus on the nose, with plenty of fruit on the palate. This is certainly California in style, but it is oh so tasty. The tannins seem integrated, but this likely has another half-dozen (or more) years still left in it.

Had at a formal dinner with 20 people. Everyone that had this wine commented about how much they liked it. For a down vintage, this wine was really shining right now.

2005 Argyle Extended Tirage Brut Willamette Valley Champagne Blend

Considerably better than previous bottles, and although a stylistic departure from the Rollin Soles era, this is more bright golden apple

I noticed from my own tasting, this vintage of Extended Tirage has some different notes from previous vintages, but still a one of a kind American Sparkling wine. :)

Great Merlot based blend with good concentration, balance and aromas. The wine was very well made with real quality fruit. I think it is showing very nice right now with a long life ahead of good drinking.

A wine to savor. I just wanted to take my time and enjoy. This wine is developing nicely and I wish I had more.
