Dobbes Family Estate Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Griffin's Cuvée 2006
"This wine opens with sweet, ripe and forward high-toned notes of red and black fruits and barrel spices. The warm, soft mouth feel unfolds around flavors of strawberries, red and black currants, blackberries and cherries; all wrapped in well-integrated ripe and rich tannins. A touch of light toast envelopes secondary flavors of spicy oak with fresh, mouth-watering acidity. The finish is supple, vivid and long on the palate. This luscious wine, one of seven different offerings, represents exceptional value as our introductory level Dobbes Family Estate Pinot Noir. The Grande Assemblage Cuvee Pinot Noir flaunts good aging potential and will reach its peak drink-ability from 2010-2012."Winemaker's Notes
