Slow to hatch but turned into a beautiful wine after about an hour. Upfront deep dark dried fruit infused with notes of leather and graphite. Matured tannins fully integrated with the wine gave it a lingering finish and a desire for more. Paired very well with aged gouda cheese and truffle infused salami. — 2 months ago
After a disappointing evening wine wise the Germans don’t disappoint.
Nose is deep dense blackberries. Some earth. After 30 minutes it gets some crazy savory depth.
Palate is dense blackberries. Some licorice. Round and a brilliant food wine. Very good deliciousness. After 30 minutes more serious. 1er cru serious. More dense. Gods licorice. Longer.
German pinot is the escape hatch for people priced out of burgundy. Don’t look back.
FWIW I’m having with veal tongue with shallots in a basilicata pepper white wine butter sauce.

66/18/16 blend of Sémillon, Sauvignon blanc and muscadelle. Still assessing but love the length of fruit flavors (apple, peach-apricot, lemon with a touch of grassiness), dryness and acidity on this. Slightly bitter and mineral finish. Well balanced, perfect with my fresh garden beefsteak tomato and mild Hatch Chile salsa pizza (yeah, it should be a hotter Hatch, but you work with what you got). WA state does well with the Sauv-Sém blends and this one is on point for structure and varietal expression. Just crisp enough to work — 2 years ago
What a delicious and lovely nose this wine head. Silky smooth Merlot all of the way. Decanted and left it open for about 30 minutes and I’m not even sure it needed that. Firm with delicate flavors and just enough tannins for structure. Red and blue fruits with lavender and Rosemary notes. ￼Drank this with short ribs that had been cooked sous vide for 24 hours with a red wine, hatch chili powder, salt, pepper, and onion marinade. Included with cream and garlic mashed potatoes and sautéed green beans. Lovely lovely wine.￼￼￼ — 3 years ago
Globs of cassis with either tar or licorice (both?) bringing up in the rear. Tasty sour cherries give it a lively jolt. The juice totally saturates across one’s taste receptors and remains with you a good 90 seconds from down the hatch. Yes, it’s young....but, if its current structure continues hand in hand this is going to be a classic Morgan down the road. A gorgeous wine! — 2 years ago
This was a solid choice for a dinner of pork stuffed hatch peppers. — 2 years ago
This fluorescent fruity translucent wine pairs with friends and quarantine. Having not left our fortified compound in 73 days this wine showed up at our ventilation hatch. A welcomed treat! — 2 years ago
Just the right amount of tobacco leaf/herbal funk to match with Hatch green chili pork. — 3 years ago
