California, Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley, Sonoma, USA


This is a really exciting wine that seems to be made of many other styles. CdP-like flamboyant nose of kirsch liqueur with a hint of earth, pepper, and a nebbiolo-like rose and tar mixture, and a burgundy-like structure and texture with a superb, but still youthful frame of fruit. Best Goldridge I’ve tasted and absolutely ready for primetime, although I’d be the first to admit that a few years of cellar time will probably make this even better. Sensational.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
