Wine By Joe Pinot Blanc Willamette Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"This wine leaps into your mouth and opens up initially with aromas ofstone fruit, vanilla, pears and a hint of smokiness. The medium-bodiedmouth feel delivers rich and rewarding flavors of cream, vanilla, spiceand peach balanced by refreshingly crisp talc-flinty acidity. Thefinish lingers, inviting you for another sip. If you haven't tried agreat Oregon Pinot Blanc, now is the time to do it!"Winery Notes"Light straw color. Zesty lemon and limearomas gain depth with air, taking a turn to tangelo and melon. Stonyand dry, with finely etched citrus flavors, light body and a subtlehoneysuckle quality on the back end. Supple and inviting but alsoenergetic, with good finishing cut."88 pointsJosh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Apr 08

Yes, there really is a Joe! Joe Dobbes is the man behind your bottle of Wine By Joe. As the sole owner and winemaker of Wine By Joe, LLC, Joe is a busy guy. As he says, "Passion fuels endless energy." Joe has been making wine in Oregon for over twenty years and his passion increases with each vintage. Driven to excellence in his art, Joe Dobbes is the consummate winemaker. Raised in a small town in the north Willamette Valley and educated in Ashland, Joe is a true Oregonian and is dedicated to Oregon wines. Yet his calling began outside Oregon, in Germany and France, where Joe spent 2 1⁄2 years learning the art and science of winemaking. He apprenticed at Wiengut Erbhof Tesch, in the German Nahe region and at Domaine G. Roumier and Domaine Comtes Lafon in the Burgundy region, France, with winemasters Christophe Roumier and Dominque Lafon. Read less
