Wine By Joe Pinot Noir Oregon Really Good 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Sassafras, raspberry, almond shell and a bit of vanilla all come out on the nose to be joined by a little gardenia and some beetroot. This is lightweight and pretty in the mouth with early notes of waxy perfume and soft red fruits in the mouth. The tannins are airy and light, balanced by solid if integrated acidity. A pretty light weight wine with pure cherry and raspberry fruit that is awfully easy to drink. 86pts

Yes, there really is a Joe! Joe Dobbes is the man behind your bottle of Wine By Joe. As the sole owner and winemaker of Wine By Joe, LLC, Joe is a busy guy. As he says, "Passion fuels endless energy." Joe has been making wine in Oregon for over twenty years and his passion increases with each vintage. Driven to excellence in his art, Joe Dobbes is the consummate winemaker. Raised in a small town in the north Willamette Valley and educated in Ashland, Joe is a true Oregonian and is dedicated to Oregon wines.

He apprenticed at Wiengut Erbhof Tesch, in the German Nahe region and at Domaine G. Roumier and Domaine Comtes Lafon in the Burgundy region, France, with winemasters Christophe Roumier and Dominque Lafon. Read less

I enjoyed this last night with some take out Italian and I must say it was very good. It was a light not tannic Pinot with a soft nose and hint of fruit.

Dense cherry with an acid finish... and unbelievable QPR.

Wine shop owner called this "spaghetti wine" and I certainly agree. It needs some food to go with. On it's own, not so good. Muted fruit, a bit of earth, but really, a "MEH" wine for me.
