2007 Stoller Vineyards Pinot Noir 'JV Estate'

June 24, 2009|S. Irene Virbila

A truly lovely Pinot Noir from Stoller Vineyards in the Dundee Hills of Oregon. The JV stands for jeunes vignes, as in "junior vines," a younger, high-density planting. The wine Stoller made in 2007 is ripe yet delicate with wonderful berry flavors revved up with sweet spices and an earthy minerality. It's ready to drink now and terrific.
