Winemaker Notes

This complex Pinot Noir is a big and full of body. Not over the top, but skirting the line beautifully; this wine flirts with power, depth, richness and elegance simultaneously. This harmonious cuvée opens with expansive warm aromas of spices and black fruits with a hint of floral notes. The mouth mirrors the aromas with full flavors of black cherries, blackberries and red currents wrapped within fine and sweet tannins.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
TP 93
Tasting Panel

Ripe and rich yet quite elegant; silky and lush with lovely ripe cherry and graceful flavors that hold hints of gentle spices; showing great depth and finesse, complex and of a piece; long, seductive and exquisite.

W&S 92
Wine & Spirits

Soft florals with notes of tea overlay this wine's vibrant cherry fruit, which gets more exuberant with air. There's a brisk tension to the flavors that provides plenty of drive. The herbal bottom note suggests a match with thyme-roasted chicken.

WS 91
Wine Spectator

Light and refreshing, this offers cherry, red plum and exotic spice flavors that mingle effortlessly and dance deftly through the refined finish.

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.

Mendocino

View all wine

A large and diverse appellation within California’s North Coast AVA, Mendocino is home to several smaller sub-regions—most notably the Anderson Valley. This scenic region covered in redwood forests is one of the world’s top producers of certified organically-grown grapes. Due to wide geographical and climatic variation, a vast array of wine styles can be found here.

Zinfandel

View all wine

Unapologetically powerful, heady, and fruit-forward, Zinfandel is often thought of as a truly Californian grape, though in fact it is anything but. This variety has followed an intriguing trajectory to reach its adoptive home, beginning, surprisingly, in Croatia. Originally known as Tribidrag, it first made its way to southern Italy where it became known as Primitivo. From there it eventually migrated to what is now unarguably its most successful outpost, in California, and has thrived throughout the state. Of course, this is also the grape of White Zinfandel, a sweet pink wine that enjoyed great popularity in the 1980s and 90s. Though White Zin still has a significant following, today the variety is increasingly associated with the red version.

In the Glass

Zinfandel commonly features a bold, plush texture and notes of dark plum, blackberry, sweet spice, black pepper, dark chocolate, leather, and licorice, and can often be described as “jammy” and a little bit sweet. Very ripe examples may express a hint of dried fruit like raisin, fig, or prune. Despite its significant alcohol and weight, Zinfandel has very smooth, gentle tannins.

Perfect Pairings

Zinfandel is a powerfully flavored wine, mingling happily with bold food like brisket, lamb shanks, pork ribs, or anything barbecued. If care is taken with regards to alcohol levels, Zinfandel’s hint of sweetness can work well with milder Indian-spiced dishes like lamb curry.

Sommelier Secret

Thanks to its popularity both for home winemaking and as communion wine, many Zinfandel vines were able to survive prohibition, leading to the abundance of "old vine" Zinfandels. These low-yielding vines tend to produce wine that is concentrated, complex, and elegant.
