2009 Dobbes Grand Assemblage Pinot Noir Willamette Valley OR 13.5% $24

Wintergreen, quinine and eucalyptus top the red fruit of the nose. This is rather broad in the mouth, though clear and bright, with a slightly flannelly feel to the fine, fresh fruit tones. There’s something slightly exotic about the fruit here, a little papaya/guava action going on. Raspberry fruit adds depth, offering up a super sweet/mineral tension. This is still youthful, but is a very complete wine. The herbal notes of the nose come out on the back end, adding more depth and freshness to the earthy wild cherry finish. Damn this is good. 91pts
