2009 Stoller, Pinot Noir “JV” Estate, Dundee Hills, Willamette, Oregon.
This 2009 Stoller is really turning out to be a super wine and a fantastic deal in top quality Pinot Noir and gives lots of pleasure. Pure Dundee terroir and lush layers of fruit flow freely here and there is pretty rose petals, red spices and flinty minerals keeping things interesting while silky tannins and subtle acidity keeps things together nicely. The main body of fruit leans on plum and raspberry, but the is a lovely core of black cherry running throughout and lingers on the finish with a touch of strawberry preserves as well, plus a very nice flash of smoke and vanilla. If you are looking to buy a great drinking Oregon Pinot, this 2009 Stoller JV is the one to stock up on, no question this wine is drinking great now and should be a joy for the next 2 years at least.
