Winemaker's Notes:

Garnet in color, with notes of tart cherry pie, complexed by earthy, forest floor on the nose. Soft silky tannins are complemented by flavors of cherries, raspberries and cherry gumdrops. This is a vintage that Pinot purists will love, exhibiting all the grace, earth and fruit that Pinot Noir shows when grown in the right place and handled with care by the right winemaking team.

About Dobbes Family Estate:

Dobbes Family Estate is the pinnacle of Joe Dobbes' winemaking efforts, hinting at the decades of experience behind it. The opulent and age-worthy wines are produced from premier vineyards in Oregon's Willamette and Rogue Valleys. Though a small-town boy raised in Willamette Valley, Joe Dobbes' wine calling originated far from his home country. Stints in the Nahe and Burgundy regions provided Joe with a solid foundation in the Old World of winemaking before returning to the U.S. and eventually beginning Joe Dobbes Wines in 2002. The estate vineyards cover some 214 acres in Willamette Valley and, in addition, Joe works closely with a number of elite Oregon vineyards to release single-vineyard wines and masterful cuvées under three labels - Dobbes Family Estate, Jovino and Wine By Joe.
