2008 Amalie Robert Wadenswil Estate Bottled Oregon Pinot Noir

13.8% alc., 50 cases, $50. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Complex scents of black cherries, blackberries, sassafras, prickly pear and oak vanillin. Darkly fruited and savory, mysterious and primal, offering flavors of black currants, blackberries and brown spices enrobed in dusty, fine-grain tannins. More intrigue and structure and less acidity than the Dijon Clones bottling. A good cellar candidate. Very good (+). Reviewed November 2, 2011
