2010 Dobbes Family Estate Pinot Noir Grand Assemblage Willamette Valley 13.5% $24

2010 Dobbes Family Estate Pinot Noir

Sandy soil and lightly loamy aromas greet the nose followed by hints of sage and cardamom over light yet fragrant wild berry fruit. This is deceptively lightweight in the mouth with terrific intensity of flavors that are supported by vibrant acids and soft, ripe tannins. The flavors are intense yet somehow a touch ephemeral, with layers of blueberry skins, wild raspberry, cranberry, licorice, violet extract, a touch of India ink and some lovely mineral and pollen notes on the moderately long, zesty finish. This is really lovely and would probably show even better with the right food. I love the structure here, firm but not intrusive in any way. 91pts
