Dobbes Pinot Noir Rogue Valley Skipper's Cuvee 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very fruity and ripe on the nose with sweet candy notes that join sweet tea, wild berry fruit, sage, a hint of vanilla some cola and spice cake notes. Rich and almost dense on entry with great intensity of flavor. There’s that spice cake and dried fruit early on the entry then the acids kick in and freshen the fruit on the palate. The acid actually brings out the sweetness of the fruit, which is a touch exotic with a hint of pomegranate accenting cherry fruit and leading to a really intense, richly flavored fruit and spice coated finish. Pretty big wine, lots of extract here but it’s not over-wrought, just intense. 92pts
