Value Pinots 11/2012

1. Dobbes Family Estate Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Griffin's Cuvée (2010)

Next » 1 of 24
Average price: $15.99 from 24 stores
This smells stemmy and minty. High toned with chalk, crushed raspberry, rhubarb and floral aromas all topped with a touch of bacon and a little allspice. This is really fresh and has a fine combination of richness and precision in the mouth. The fruit is transparent with light red cherries and raspberries all wrapped in fine herb and spice notes with a hint of carob on the back end. The texture here is fantastic, so light and fresh, yet the fruit has a sweet edge of ripeness to it with zesty acidity and ripe, fine-grained tannins serving as support. This is not a complicated wine but it is delicious and a joy to drink with a moderately long finish that shows a hint of milk chocolate. 88pts

  • 1042430BrugmanRose Gregory, you did a very nice job on locating and tasting these Pinot Noirs. I see many of them in my local stores and just can not conclude from the labels what I am suppose to expect from each individual wine. Your analysis has been helpful in guiding me to what I would like.
