Amalie Robert Amalie's Cuvee 2009
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Representing as it does every vintage, an assemblage of owner Dena Drews' 10-12 favorite barrels (in this case strongly favoring fruit from vines of Pommard Selection), the Amalie Robert 2009 Pinot Noir Amalie's Cuvee delivers a strikingly complex nose of bittersweet floral perfume, toasted nuts, fresh red berries, and their spirituous essences along with those of myriad herbs. Silken textured and mouthwateringly salt- tinged, this finishes with impressive length and a complexity more than fulfilling the promise made to the nose. I would look for at least a strong six year run.
