Last week we had the pleasure of visiting some friends and wine club members for a private tasting event, thank you Allison Wallace & AdVinetures for the lovely blog post and for sharing our story!
Here’s what Allison says about some of our wines:
2012 McLean Creek Chardonnay
“From their other Estate Vineyard this wine is raised for 10 months in French Oak, 20% new. By now the house style was in evidence: nicely balanced wines that seek elegance over power. Apple dominates the fruit profile of this wine and receives supporting notes of wet stones and hints of pear. The body sits somewhere between the Tribute and the Stevens and finishes long with a mouth-watering acidity. Lovely to sip on its own, we can only imagine how delicious it would be with fish or delicately sauced pasta dishes.” ~Excellent
2012 McLean Creek Pinot Noir
“Medium red, the nose produces red fruits in abundance. Cherry, cranberry and cola notes dominate the medium-bodied palate while undertones of baking spice and a faint earthiness add complexity to the satiny texture. Jak Meyer thinks this wine will develop for up to 10 years in the cellar and we found no reason to disagree as the balance of fruit and structure was just right. 15% whole clusters used; 10 months in French oak, 33% new, from Estate fruit.” ~Excellent
