2016 Amelia Rose Cuvée Pinot Noir
Amelia Rose Cuvée is the namesake wine for Joe Dobbes' daughter. Styled after her, this wine exudes elegance and finesse.
Diverse aromas of vanilla, red plum, dried herbs, berry cobbler, ripe cherry and allspice entice the senses. Medium weight entry on the palate with flavors of tart redcurrant and plum play alongside non-fruit components of vanilla, cedar, and cocoa. Youthful, angular tannins are matched with pleasant acidity that will maintain vibrancy as the wine ages. 55% new French oak aging contributes toasted, spicy characteristics to balance the ripe, forward fruit which will further integrate and balance with time.
