Stoller Pinot Noir Jv Dundee Hills 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): The 2008 Pinot Noir JV Estate (JV for 'junior vines', the younger vines on the estate) is medium ruby-colored with a bouquet of spicy red fruits. On the palate it is medium-bodied with layers of savory red fruit, enough ripe tannin to evolve for 2-3 years, and excellent length. Its friendly price makes it an outstanding value in Pinot Noir. (Oct 2010)

Open this bottle during a recent virtual tasting here on Snooth. Quite a different experience enjoying a wine and being able to talk to the head wine maker about the vintage and the climate and their thought process. Very informative and enjoyable. Slight signs of effervescence when unscrewing the screw cap. I saw visible CO2. On first pass the nose was somewhat subdued but the strong fruit tastes noted with the first sip, specifically red cherry and raspberry additions. Perhaps still slightly young but very well balanced acidity to compliant the younger tannins. Great color and mouth feel very typical of pinot noirs. Very good price for what you get and possibly one of my favortie pino noirs for the Williamette Valley in Oregon. Well done Stoller. Keep up the good work and get some the wines sent done here to Texas.

This wine changed quite a bit over the two hours it was open. At first the nose showed a mix of ripe red fruits and pungent floral scents, but as it opened, the hard curves melted away and aromas cherry, cinnamon spice and undergrowth prevailed. On the palate, it was silky smooth with focused ripe strawberry fruit and a slight savory note. The acidity was lifting and prevented this wine from ever becoming boring or tiring. The finish was light but enjoyable with red fruits lingering to the gentle close.

Glad I opened it a day before the tasting. Upon first tasting, it's super tart and loaded with acid. A bit young and unbalanced. Time with some air in the bottle overnight and through the following day, relaxed the nose to a nice bright cherry. Some floral tones and a hint of spice. On the palate now, bright Gamay-styled berry fruit. Red cherry, some pomegranate and cranberry with bright acid, which is still a tad high. It drinks younger, driven by fruit and strong acid and there are only slight hints of any earth or spice. Finishes on a metallic note. The JV isn't much my style of pinot.

WA 90pts. - Tasting Notes - Aromas of ripe red raspberries, Bing cherries, floral notes of lilac and violets, barrel spices of cinnamon and clove, and herb de Provence (lavender and green herbal tones/tea leaf). The palate features bramble berry flavors, bright acidity and medium tannins with a real purity of red fruit flavors.

WS 93pts. - Winemaker Notes - A moderate garnet and brilliant wine, this Stoller is as lush as it gets, with red cherry black cherry aromatics, a soft and velvety palate, and a mix of fresh red fruit and earth flavors. It finishes with intriguing sour cherry and very light tannin. Perfectly balanced, with good acid in this cool vintage, even at our warmest site. Look for very long aging. One of the best vintages from Stoller, ever.
