02/10/21 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (GERMANY) 10%; at Wincheringen, on the Upper Mosel. As bracingly fresh and stimulating as a whiff of bay rum. Has been compared to muscadet but more like gros plant. Wow. What relief!/ Oh, yes, brisk cubed. Not without a core of forgiveness though. Very, very long, surprisingly flavorful finish. 16.9.

02/10/21 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (FRANCE MEDITERRANEAN) 14%; grenache blanc, clairette, bourboulenc, viognier; granite soils of the Right Bank; no malo.

(WT021021-07) 18 GROCHAU COMMUTER CUVEE WILLAMETTE VALLEY PINOT NOIR  $19.99
02/10/21 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (U.S. WEST COAST) 13.7%; John Grochau discovered wine while bicycle racing for a French team in the Loire Valley; aged 9 months on lees in seasoned oak barrels. Pronounced Grow-Shaw, not Groucho. Fresh, stimulating nose-ful of crisp Oregon pinot. Rounds and brightens with aeration. I can see the lees influence./ Palate well rounded and full, as well as Oregon crisp. Continues to fill out by the minute. What a salivating mouthful of pinot for food. Some tannin precludes service with fish until it rounds out over the coming months. 16.8+.

One complex Bordeaux Superieur./ Dazzles on the palate too, with both fruit and oak giving upscale performances. Fine grained tannins guarantee cellar potential to a full bouqueted maturity. The group was in awe. 17.0+.

(WT021021-12) 18 VALRAVN SONOMA ZINFANDEL  $18.99
02/10/21 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (U.S. WEST COAST) 14.8%; vines 40-100 yrs old in Rockpile, Dry Creek, Alexander, and Russian River valleys; 14 months in French oak barrels, 10% new. Heavy Bottle Award. Intense, powerful, sweet fruited. Solid core of potential. The oak is thoroughly integrated./ Again, the fruit is sweet, while the tannin does a balancing act by drying it up some. Shows the pedigree of old vines and top Sonoma origins. And the ideally ripe fruit of a fine vintage. I'd like to cellar this to at least age five, better still, seven. 16.8+.
