Goodfellow/Matello Berserker Day VIII

#1 Post by Marcus Goodfellow » January 14th, 2017, 2:53 pm

Hello and welcome to berserker Day VIII!

We're offering three options for Goodfellow Family Cellars and Matello Wines this year. Each is designated by the name of one of my favorite WB posters:

1) The Tallman-a 6 pack selection of Willamette Valley white wines.
2015 Matello Whistling Ridge Blanc
2012 Matello Riesling
2015 Goodfellow "Clover" Pinot Gris
2014 Goodfellow WV Chardonnay
2 bottles 2014 Goodfellow Richard's Cuvée Chardonnay Whistling Ridge Vineyard

For BD VIII this is $136


2) The Novick-this is also a 6pack, and showcases three of my favorite red wines.
2 bottles 2014 Goodfellow Whistling Ridge Pinot Noir
2 bottles 2013 Goodfellow Durant Pinot Noir
2 bottles 2012 Matello Fool's Journey Syrah/Viognier

...or just say, "make mine a Trimpi" and I will send you the same three wines but all from the 2013 vintage.

For BD VIII this is $170

3) The Pobega. A four pack of our wines that you can pull the cork on as soon as they hit your door. In honor of Mike, and because our younger wines always need time, I dug through our tiny library to find a pair of wines that you don't have to wait on(although feel free to let them sit for a bit). This is a mixed selection and extremely limited.
2009 Matello Lazarus Pinot Noir
2008 Matello Winter's Hill Pinot Noir
2014 Goodfellow Pinot Noir Durant Vineyard*
2014 Goodfellow Richard's Cuvée Chardonnay, Whistling Ridge Vineyard*

*While not a cellared wine, you can Pobega this and still enjoy the heck out of it.
$200 plus free shipping

The older wines are in short supply, and I can only take requests for 12 of these.

For ordering: please email info@goodfellowfamilycellars.com.

Include: Your Name, phone number, shipping address and this cc info: #, expiration, ccv and billing zip code.

(feel free to call 503 380 5766 if you don’t prefer email for exchanging information or questions)

Thanks so much for all the love on the boards and for making it possible for me to continue this fabulous work.

Anyone who doesn't request a Novick is an idiot. Novick > Trimpi any day of the week.

This is so funny...I'm in...for a Novick, natch.

OMG I didn't see this earlier - this is briliant

However, Corey, you can't be 'in' for a Novick yet, as this offer is not available for purchase until TOMORROW...
Apparently I'm lazy, have a narrow agenda, and offer little in the way of content and substance (RMP) (and have a "penchant for gossip" -KBI)

You win with either Novick or Trimpi! The Tallman and Pobega packs are also mighty intiguing.

I really like where the 2013s are going and think the Trimpi will be a great package...but some patience is required. The Novick has the 2012 Fool's Journey, of which I have maybe 3 cases left, you can open one now and it's in a really good spot.

With a Novick™ you get some vintage variety. Variety is good.

Go Novick™. You'll be glad you did.

IMO you should consider the Novick, you get three different vintages and a crash course in all of them(from an AFWE-esque winery).

All three wines in the Novick are very good examples of Oregon's connection to Europe, but with a little new world influence. The 12 Fool's Journey has an extra year of bottle age, the 2013 Durant Vineyard is old vine Dundee Hills and is showing beautifully with a small amount of air, and the 14 Whistling Ridge is my stingiest most cellar time needing wine but from the warm 2014 vintage. While I LOVE the 2013 Whistling Ridge it needs either be open for a few hours, cellared for a few years, or drunk with dinner, preferably featuring a richer food like short ribs or duck.

There is a pretty good Oregon vintage thread here as well. It will help you get the hang of the wines from the Willamette Valley. Although I personally like the differences between them and wines from both ends of the spectrum.

Or "what Corey said"

Come on guys....if you can't decide between two options....just buy BOTH. That's the easiest solution.

The 2013 vintage wines at least for pinot and Chard was great. A little lower alcohol, higher acids and if you're a little patient, they will be extremely expressive wines. Marcus' '14s are a little more forward fruit (red fruited) but still equally delicious. They're both balanced though, don't let the "bigger" '14 vintage concern folks.

If you know you'll want to drink one sooner rather than later, I'd go with '13s. '14s SVD need more time to really develop.

It was a tough process Ron, I was thinking about doing a 2007, 2011, and 2013 offering called the Felthoven but I think another year before that one is ready.

My whites last week, and I had added a 2013 Durant Pinot Noir, which we opened on Friday. It was terrific, and we actually drank it over three days. The wine evolved and developed each day, and was perfectly enjoyable -- if more bright, acidic and with none of the Pinot funk-earth-mushrooms-minerals. This tells me the wine can age for quite a few years. Very good. Will definitely be buying more Goodfellow, and look forward to getting into the whites!

Finally headed out to the valley to pick up the Tallman BD wines along with a PCC '14 WV sixer. When asking about the Souris, Marcus slipped a bottle of the '12 in for a WV saying it was drinking really great, I ain't complaining. Vinopolis has both the the '11 and '12 Souris on special now for those interested. [cheers.gif]
