Winfield Estate Wines
2011 Proprietor's Select Pinot Noir
Old and New
Today’s delicious Winfield Estate Wines 2011 Proprietor’s Select Pinot Noir was crafted by one of the Princes of Oregon Pinot - Joe Dobbes.
Joe began his winemaking career overseas, learning the craft at such prestigious wineries as Wiengut Erbhof Tesch in Germany and Domaine G. Roumier in Burgundy. After returning home to Oregon, Joe set about crafting a winemaking philosophy that marries the lessons he learned overseas with the fantastic fruit found near his home in the Willamette Valley. This philosophy results in wines like today’s - clearly influenced by the Old World, with strong elements of structure and terroir, but balanced by aspects of the New World, with deep fruit flavors and bold spice.
Enjoy today’s stellar Pinot at an unbelievable price of only $15.99 - at this price, it won’t last long!
Dark crimson in the center of the glass, slowly transitioning to a lighter ruby around the edge of the glass.
A hint of classic Old World style on the nose, with sweet plum, French prune, and wild strawberry blended with sandalwood, black peppercorn, coffee bean, and a subtle fresh herbal undertone.
Very Burgundian on the palate, with beautiful structure and terroir. Hints of braised red fruit, including strawberry and dark cherry, are framed by espresso bean, freshly tilled earth, aged cigar box, black peppercorn, clove, and a touch of sage.
After decanting, you’ll be greeted by a very light and approachable wine that’s a lovely blend of Old and New world interpretations of the varietal.
