Random notes on US from 1994

Some US wine notes from 1994  … from California and Washington

 

1992 Riesling, Chateau Ste. Michelle, Columbia Valley, Washington US

Soapy, a distorted varietal character, lacking acidity and vivacity - bland.

 

1991 Vintners’ Reserve Merlot, Kendall Jackson

Surprisingly well-made: tightly constructed yet supple. Not bad, but still boring- Merlot usually is as a mono-cépage.

 

1990 Merlot, Columbia Crest, Paterson

Astringent, dominated by alcohol with a hard, dense monolithic structure. No complexity or movement. Dreadful.
