Not many Zins improve with age, at least not this much bottle age. Scherrer’s are an exception, and exceptional. — 4 days ago
14.8% ABV Doesn’t seem that high. Dark fruit, earthy, has legs. — 8 months ago

Fascinating to revisit this wine - still showing beautifully w/very consistent profile from previous occasions... so much time left on this. For those unfamiliar w/Fred Scherrer - he started at Dehlinger and then struck out on his own. He’s a UCD guy (my Alma Mater)... I used to rep his wine and it’s incredible across his portfolio. — 8 months ago

First ever Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. Shopkeep says vintner doesn't release wines until they are ready and that this one reminds him of old school RRV Pinot.
Definitely some aged character on this. Needed time to breathe, but it revealed a beautiful bouquet of eucalyptus, blood orange peel, red clay, and freshly baked cherry pie. Lovely balanced finish. The aging paid of big time. Love it. — 7 months ago
