September 18, 2020 - Clasic Wadensvil flavors melded on day 2. Sliding my drinking window +2/+2 years. Keep up the great work.
March 4, 2020 - I agree with others that is sweet fruit but it is very good, I will see how it is tomorrow and will wait to drink my other bottles
July 3, 2018 - Accidentally opened my last bottle. This is a big plush ripe wine, almost like a barrel sample. Very concentrated. Berry fruit. Strong acidity. Lovely nuanced forest and saline notes. Enjoyable now in primary style, but has plenty of upside as it drops the baby fat.
June 8, 2018 - Willamette Valley Trip - June 2018; 6/8/2018-6/11/2018: From estate vineyard fruit, this had tons of aromatics with some sweet strawberry and raspberry on the mid-palate followed by a silky smooth finish.
March 4, 2018 - Decanted. Beautiful nose with loads of musky red and black fruit, a touch of oak. Slammed shut after about 30 min open. On the palate, fantastic density and texture. Softer acidity, but loads of pepper and a hint of pithy bitterness. Shows no tannin on the finish, but some heat.
January 7, 2018 - I liked this better on night 2. On night 1 the fruit was so forward and “sweet” it was rather off putting. On night 2 this has settled down. Clean crisp red fruits, with a nice background of forest floor. Shows the vintage with the ripeness, but restrains freshness and blanace. Quite good.
November 28, 2016 - Pop and pour and tasted with food (grilled pork chops, Thai eggplant, and broccoli with black bean and garlic sauce, in case you were wondering).
Deep ruby red color; a bit cloudy.
Bright red berry fruits with elements of wet stone. Elegant profile in a nicely balanced package. It is not a big wine wine; rather, it has a vibrancy and freshness to the fruit it that makes it enjoyable.
Sealed under a Vacu-vin and refrigerated. Tasted the following night. This has taken on some weight, showing greater depth of fruit. Still retains the freshness to it and a nice mineral element. Likely to improve with a year or three of bottle age.
