2009 Copain Pinot Noir "En Bas" Kiser Anderson Valley

Same as last note, but had alongside 2008 Beaux Freres. Both equally good wines, but night and day different in flavor profile. The Beaux Freres was dark and brooding, like a Nuit St Georges, or very northern red burg. The Copain more like a Chambolle, with the brighter fruits.

    5/17/16, 10:01 AM - I have a few bottles left, but am about to leave for my summer abode and have none of this vintage there, so its next November before I can try another. On the last note posted before mine, I would guess if one is used to drinking Meiomi type pinot's, this will come across as acidic and a bit bitter. If one is used to the cool climate pinots, or red burgs, which is where I am, it's exactly what you are looking for in a pinot. I will watch for your posts.

First bottle of 6 and I will dump the rest...alcohol dominates. Hate this style. Should never have bought it.

Probably my least favorite wine of the tasting. And, the only bottle of 6 from which the cork came out whole. Somewhat tart, acidic, all earth and spice, no real fruit.

Ditto last note.

    5/9/14, 10:28 AM - Well, only 1 more 07 en bas, but 5 en haut 07 and 3 Monument Tree 07. But I do have another 60 or so of vintages 09-12. I love their wines, even the syrah's.

Cant believe I ever bought a wine like this. It's now a couple years later, and it is all alcohol and high extract. Nobody at the table finished their glass.

2010 Black Kite Pinot Noir Angel Hawk Anderson Valley

A pinot for cab lovers. Big, rich, high alcohol, dark fruit, tight still, not a bad wine just not the style I prefer, and not worth the money.
  • Edclr commented:

    2/10/14, 2:48 PM - I opened a bottle, my first of 6, because they just offered me another vintage, and I hadn't tasted the 2010 yet. I'm not going to order the new one based on my tasting. If it were $50, I might order some…because I have some friends who love this style.

1982 Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend

Another beautiful bottle. Thanksgiving night, done with turkey, time for steak and lamb chops. Had 82, 83 and 86 Pich's side by each. All very different but could identify all as Pichon Lalande. Not much of even a hint of brown on any of the 3. All perfectly stored, decanted and served. Fruit still bright in 82 and 83, 86 still a bit on the tight side. Great examples of Bordeaux. None of the 3 showing signs of down sliding. But 82 and 83 are probably at peak, 86 still some time left to hit it's peak.
  • Edclr commented:

    3/18/13, 7:14 PM - For drinking today, 82 has the edge....longer term, 86 will outlive it and be better at it's peak. That is true of many 82 vs 86 bordeaux...Margaux, especially and Mouton.

I like this smoky, berry like flavor combo, but this is going to drink young. Not the minerality I usually associate with Anderson Valley pinots.
