Winemaker Joe Dobbes makes this delicious wine in the Willamette Valley, Ore., where he makes several different brands. He describes this value-priced wine as “genuine with no pretenses.” Indeed, it’s easy drinking and very enjoyable, especially at this low price. It offers tasty aromas and flavors of tangy cherry with bright notes of blueberries, blackberries, spice, and earth. This versatile Pinot will pair nicely with an array of foods, a great cheeseburger, seared peppered ahi, salmon, or roast beef. Available at the new wine shop Alegria in SLO, it’s priced $21 retail.
