2008 Amalie Robert Vintage Debut Estate Bottled Oregon Pinot Noir

13.4% alc., $30. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Nicely perfumed with vivid aromas of black cherries, spicy stem, and new oak. Light to medium weight flavors of black cherries and red berries with complimentary oak. Supple tannins and brisk acidity on the finish. Nicely put together and very approachable now. I like it for its easy drinkability. Drink this one while you cellar the other 2008 Amalie Estate Pinot Noirs. Fine the next day from a previously opened and recorked bottle indicating it will hold up nicely over the next few years. Very good. Reviewed November 2, 2011
