Kistler - Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast
young, bright cherry, slight barnyard, mushrooms, and a sweet nuance on the finish. Needs some time to settle down.
J Lohr - Cuvee St E
rich and tart on the first nose. It degraded over time but was pleasant on the first night.
mint, ethereal, and leather. Silky feel on the palate. Pleasing and soft. I expected more power but this wine seemed a bit subdued. Good wine though
Turkey Flat - Shiraz
Made another pass at the turkey flat from the fabulous 2005 vintage. This heavily extracted wine has a distinct aroma and personality. The aromas can be off putting to those that don't like dark plum and earthy tones. Thick, rich, and powerful.
Clos du Bois - Cabernet Sauvignon Briarcrest
Very tart cabernet. Almost briary, not sure if that is why it is named briarcrest! Not my style at all.
