|Viognier, Rogue Valley
Golden straw color. Complex, forward apricot, nutmeg and vanilla aromas. Medium body with clean acidity. Melon, citrus, lemon, vanilla and apricot flavors. Long, mouth-watering finish with lingering barrel spice and apricot. Done in an Old World style, the limited barrel aging (25%) combined with stainless steel aging creates a perfect balance.
|Pinot Noir, Grand Assemblage
Each parcel is vinified and aged separately, allowing for optimum site expression and blending mastery. 17 months in 100% French oak (25% new). Aromas of modest cherry, dried cranberry and strawberry fruit are in step with earthy forest floor, tobacco and integrated toasted oak. Structured tannins frame the palate filled with medium bodied dried cherry, raspberry and cola notes that stretch into a long acid-driven finish.

|Pinot Noir, Patricia's Cuvee
“This is ripe but attractively fresh with briar and floral hints on the mostly dark pinot fruit suffused nose. There is good depth to the silky and admirably pure middle weight flavors that possess good phenolic maturity to the supporting structural elements, all wrapped in a clean, agreeably dry and austere finish. This will not be for everyone as the austerity is not subtle but I very much like the linear, focused and well-balanced finale.” Allen Meadows, burghound.com - April 2012 - 90 points

Bright notes of fresh cut pears, green apples and hints of creamy vanilla characters on the nose are mirrored on the elegant, crisp palate and are balanced with citrus zest and flinty acidity for a long, lively finish.

|Wine by Joe Pinot Blanc
100% of the fruit comes from Dobbes Family Estate’s Larkin Vineyard where it’s hand-harvested and brought to Dobbes’ LIVE certified winery. This wine opens up initially with aromas of vanilla, pears, flint and apples. The palate delivers rich flavors of peach and citrus fruit balanced by refreshingly crisp talc-flinty acidity. A medium-bodied, rich, but crisp wine with text book Pinot Blanc nuances.
|Wine by Joe Pinot Noir
Dark garnet hues, moderate tannins and alcohol and complex red fruit and earth
characters make this wine a classic Oregon Pinot Noir. This Pinot’s full body is framed with dusty tannins and clean acid that lead into to a medium-long finish full of tart cherry and rhubarb notes with integrated hints of toasted oak.
