2012 Halcon Vineyards Esquisto Yorkville Highlands Red Rhone Blend
needs a little bit of decant i think overall its youthful and needs more side ways time to develop, its very plushy in the fruit profile with like a watermelon cherry rind thing going on,
  • Weston3220 commented:

    3/13/14, 8:34 AM - the 2012 i would say minimum a year as its just recently released/bottled i think so it needs to settle a bit after that then id go back to it again and try myself, it felt a little disjointed in the sense the blend was not harmonious together yet, you could taste the syrah the grencache etc differently

What is there to say, it is 'youthful' lots of people would of said I drank this too young, but I look at the price I paid I expect it to show when I drink it

French, tasty lots of acidity and red fruit, would like too see it in 10years

I have an earlier note that was pretty unflattering and an admonition to reserve judgment. So I waited a few months. And this is pretty darn good though is it time or bottle variation or something just off in one bottle, I do not know. Regardless, this is nice stuff. A cranberry/rhubarb vivid red fruit flavor, long finish, good balance. Way better the second night. Quite tasty.

A treat to drink. Classic WA state cab with sensible alcohols (~13%) Believe it or not this still has maybe another 3-5yrs left in it. Mature fruit with tertiary flavors - leather, tobacco, coffee, and a tad of barnyard funk.

2010 Painted Rock Syrah Okanagan Valley VQA
Took a good 45min to open up savory with a dark fruit core nice floral lavander note. on the palate has that bitterness of a Northern Rhone Syrah, and even has that youthful taste it and this needs like 10years

DAY 2, Opened up a bit, softened but still youthful, still reminds me of a nothern rhone, just needs the age to mellow n relax this baby

2010 Ken Wright Pinot Noir Freedom Hill Vineyard Willamette Valley
4th Annual Pinot Extravaganza with Salmon Dinner (Eugene, Oregon): Did Not Enjoy this wine at all, Powdery Candy Fruit like a fun dip package, neeeded something, maybe time will turn this around I came back to this 3 times during the tasting to see if it would open up with air over the hours, nope
  • Weston3220 commented:

    8/20/13, 9:55 AM - Yeah if your like me then yeah a couple years for sure, to be fair tho others at the wine tasting did like it more then I did, I think it justs need a lot of air like open it up 24 hrs before hand and or i'd hide it in back of cellar~

2011 Cameron Pinot Noir Dundee Hills
Enjoyed this wine, wasnt the most complex out of the group but from what I was told on the price I would buy this again, funky, good acidity structure, would love to actually visit the winery on of these days
  • Weston3220 commented:

    7/24/13, 10:46 AM - Agreed, tho to be fair I think this come into Canada and its cloes to $50 so I wouldn't buy it here

Day 1 some fruit and starting to show aged cab notes enjoyable oak is there lingering in back ground not over bearing, day 2 completely integrated, fruit has mellowed out more and has a very dry finish
  • Weston3220 commented:

    5/28/13, 9:59 AM - I would say some thing yes and some things no, I think a decant for a couple hrs would be the best bet, I think too much fruit faded over the 24hrs

This bottle was disappointing: I can deal with the animal notes but it seemed volatile and unbalanced. I guess that is the risk of buying natural wines...
This was the "S" version but I guess that they use just a minimal amount so it is hard to have a consistent purity in each bottle. My other bottles were great despite the animal tones.

Too extracted and modern for a Margaux in my taste. Turns to plum jam, cooked berries and fruit compote pretty quickly. Flavour on the other hand is a bit thin. It's certainly drinkable if you're not beeing overly critical but it lacks all of the elegance I expect in a classified Margaux.
  • Weston3220 commented:

    5/4/13, 8:11 PM - whats your thought on drinking window? I have one bottle left and figuring out when to drink it

Light garnet colour. Pretty nose - undergrowth, mushrooms and red berries. The palate is balanced, but it was initially dominated by woody, greenness that I didn't like, but this went away with about an hour of air. Nice wine. I am optimistic about its potential to age. I had the 2006 of this wine at the 5 year mark and it was going strong. Looking forward to dipping into the rest of my supply over the next several years.
  • Weston3220 commented:

    12/15/12, 8:01 PM - Light Garnet? Last time I opened this wine It was not light it was the medto med+ side of dark, i may have to open another just to drink n QC even tho last time I had it was young

  • Weston3220 commented:

    12/15/12, 8:18 PM - ok thanks for the heads up maybe I will pop one sooner rather then later and see what is going on, secondary flavours already

    thanks for the heads up!

Simple, clean, refreshing, inoffensive and serviceable, but boring. Couldn't hold up to an Oyster pairing at Son of a Gun.

2007 Maison Leroy Bourgogne Pinot Noir
My question would be why does the '07 rouge have so much fruit but the '07 white is damn mineral.

Cartoony and unruly upon opening; two days in the fridge and this is in a great place, with nice N.Rhone Syrah character.
  • Weston3220 commented:

    11/11/10, 9:29 PM - yeah I find the 2007 so young that I dont even want to drink any for awhile, 08 is showing nicely right now

Good stuff. This was darker and more intense than the St. Joseph, with a homeopathic dose of brett, just a small hint of the barnyard that added to the package.
  • Weston3220 commented:

    9/22/10, 10:23 AM - I have some 07 left but also have some 06 and last time I tasted the 06 it was so floral and elegant but a good producer, havn't opened my 08s yet I dont think.

Best Blue Mtn I have ever had and its still a baby. Wonderful nose of cherry, spice. Fine grained tannins, the oak was used to perfection and it had a smooth long finish. Soft, round and a hint of creamy fruit. This should age very nice over the next few years.
  • Weston3220 commented:

    8/4/10, 10:31 PM - how is this compared to the 06?

Red fruits, Bacon, animal, pebber, spicy. True Syrah and Nothern Rhone character. Medium bodied and rather soft and maybe laking a little bite and structure to be truely great. But certainly very good and went well with a sirloin dear steak in bordelaise sauce.
  • Weston3220 commented:

    6/19/10, 4:16 PM - Did you get any Floral Notes? Have a bottle or two left thinking of when I should have it.
