Nose has dried grape vines, tobacco, ripe cherry, moist soil, wet leather, tree bark and horse stall. (Somewhat reminiscent of young Fixin or Nuits-S-G, being honest, good things to associate.) Palate has ripe cherry, vine bark, tart cherry, dried blackberry, tar, (minor) bitter herbs (anise & fennel bulb), muddy potting soil with slight tannins on the long finish. I'd love to revisit this wine in 10+ years as it would likely be just stellar, it has all the structure to get it there, from proper storage. Future bottles may be 2028-30+. Decanted 4H. $24 direct from the winery cellar, to our cellar, to our glasses tonight. Being in the wine club has good benefits.

The 2013 Ravines Dry Riesling boasts a sweet nose of acacia honey, lemon budino pudding, and golden delicious apples—a bit deceptive given the palate, which is lean and nervy, a shock of electric acidity. Lightening-like step leaders dance across the tongue, branching and splitting into lemongrass, petrol and briny oyster shell, all of which neatly crest into a long and rather bracing finish. 12.5% ABV

Pale ruby Pinot with long legs and an intoxicating nose—fresh cherries and hints of leather and spice. Wonderful silky texture and fresh fruit on the light palate. No serious tannins or structure but a long clean finish. Solid effort.

Not Burgundy but more Alsatian in character. Solid but not mind blowing.
