A very nice Chardonnay from Oregon. Light golden/yellow in color, just a hint of cloudiness. The nose is big with a bit of oak/vanilla. Nice red apples and a bit of lemon cream. On the palate, this is a bit fat but enough acidity to make it work. Apples and slight lemons. Good finish. This is terrific on it own, a bit more limited with food but would be great with sea food or lighter middle eastern foods. While it won't get better, it still has five years (at least left).
2007 in Oregon was a love it or hate it vintage. The wines tended to be thinner and less ripe. Whether this is good is up to the taster. While I have had some lovely wines from that vintage, for the most part, it is not one of my favorite vintages. Sineann tends to make bigger styled Pinots (on an Oregon scale), so it was interesting to see how this was drinking at 12 years from vintage. For my tastes, this was not up to the usual level of enjoyment. Ruby in color. The nose has some cherry juice, a bit of spice and slight herbaceous quality. On the palate, this is light bodied. Lig
Very pale pink in color. The nose is clean but lacking much fruit. Very light cherries on the palate. Light bodied. This is probably well past its time as the fruit seems to have dropped out. It would be good to try the 2017 for a comparison.
Deep ruby in color. The nose has nice sour cherries, some spice. The palate matches the nose. This is drinking well if not yet at maturity. There is some complexity here as it opens in the glass. Good with a wide variety of foods. Not sure if it will improve but should continue to mature for at least another decade.
