I recently tried this Dobbes 2014 Grand Assemblage Pinot Noir and LOVED it! My favorite Pinots usually come from the Willamette Valley, and this one ranks high on my list. It was bold and complex, with a bit of dark cherry notes.
From the vineyard:
This multi-vineyard blend is intended to be a vintage snapshot, weaving the temperament of each vineyard site into a cohesive whole. I strive to craft a vivacious yet elegant wine that counters juicy acidity with rich mouthfeel for both freshness and ageability. 23% new oak barrels contribute structured tannins and a touch of cedar and redwood accents. This is a classic example of Oregon Pinot Noir at its best, assertive yet enjoyable in its youth with excellent aging potential.
This is an excellent Pinot Noir to enjoy year-round and a great value for the wonderful taste.
