​​iPinot Pinot Noir Accolades:

2013 iPinot

​Vivid red. Vibrant red berry and floral aromas are complemented by suggestions of cola, mocha and white pepper. Silky and open-knit, showing good energy and appealing sweetness to the strawberry, cherry and spicecake flavors. Lively and incisive in style. Finishes on a smoky note, featuring harmonious tannins and lingering spiciness.

2012 iPinot

Endless red conjures black cherry, baking cocoa, cinnamon, five spice and the heady scent of freshly tilled soil after a spring shower. The expansive mid-palate takes focus as the depth and breadth of energy released from the pure expression of fruit captivates and stimulates. As the tannins and enforcing acidity permeate, it is all at once elegant and sublime; pleasure and desire.

          - Amalie Robert Estate Tasting Notes

Vivid red. Musky red and dark berries and a hint of candied rose on the pungent nose. Juicy and focused, delivering solid thrust to the bitter cherry and black raspberry flavors. A touch of cola comes up on a long, sappy finish given shape by smooth tannins.

          - Josh Raynolds, Vinous, December 2016 - 90 points

iPinot is composed of reserve quality barrels of wine selected for luxury tier of Pinot Noirs blended to create a reserve level wine without the reserve level price. After Amalie’s Cuvée and the Estate Selection are determined, this wine is made from a few favorite barrels of wine without homes.Whole cluster inclusion and feral yeast fermentation. Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. The nose is very earthy, with aromas of mulch and mushroom, and subservient black cherry fruit in the background. Light to mid weight flavors of cherry and red berry are robed in ripe tannins. The wine has enviable harmony and a cherry-fueled finish that has good intensity.

2010 iPinot

​Lengthy Red. Initial aromas of cinnamon, lavender, lilac, and tayberry introduce stem spice over sandalwood. Initial flavors are red fruits wrapped in cherry preserve that presents balance and elegance. As the flavors linger, the wine develops breadth and depth culminating in velvety stem tannins and integrated acidity. While interesting now, this wine will reward cellar aging. Unfined and unfiltered.

          - Amalie Robert Estate Tasting Notes

Light, bright red. High-pitched redcurrant, strawberry and orange zest aromas, along with suggestions of dusty minerals and white pepper. Shows very good clarity and lift to its light-bodied bitter cherry and red berry flavors. Closes with lingering spiciness, a touch of rose pastille and silky, fine-grained tannins that stay hidden in the background.

2009 iPinot

Lengthy Red. Initial aromas of cinnamon, lavender, lilac, and tayberry introduce stem spice over sandalwood. Initial flavors are red fruits wrapped in cherry preserve that presents balance and elegance. As the flavors linger, the wine develops breadth and depth culminating in velvety stem tannins and integrated acidity. While interesting now, this wine will reward cellar aging. Unfined and unfiltered.

          - Amalie Robert Estate Tasting Notes

Vivid ruby-red. Sexy, spice- and floral-accented aromas of raspberry and cherry-cola, with a smoky topnote. Offers sappy red fruit and floral pastille flavors and notes of gingerbread and white pepper. Shows a silken character, with real back-end energy. Weightier on the gently tannic finish, which strongly echoes the raspberry and floral notes.

          - Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, July/Aug 2013 - 92 points

The Amalie Robert 2009 Pinot Noir iPinot Noir (sic) – of which there is also a Chardonnay counterpart – is so-named because the winery sold (or is selling) its 400 cases exclusively on-line. Juicy fresh cherry seems macerated with rose hip and tinged with cinnamon, black pepper, and smoked meat, as well as nicely integrated vanilla and caramelized resin from one-third new barrels. There is a hint of warmth to an otherwise delightfully sustained finish, and the tannins here are much more mannerly than in the corresponding “Reserve” bottling. Mark this down for enjoyment through at least 2017.

The Amalie Robert Estate A-List: “How to never pay retail again.”

iPinot Subscription Service by Amalie Robert Estate

"...Dallas growers Dena Drews and Ernie Pink... showed me this July three of their reserve bottlings and thereby altered my perception of their endeavors. Since these are produced in only one- or two-barrel quantities, they offer an extreme instance of a phenomenon encountered at numerous Willamette addresses, whose really exciting releases are extremely limited. But they also testify, importantly, to what is possible; and what’s possible from this site in these hands revealed itself to be extraordinary!... And what a Syrah!"
          - David Schildknecht, The Wine Advocate - October 2013

It begins when Dena signs you up: There is no upfront fee and you are free to go at any time. Also, we can customize your experience in the wines you choose to receive. For example, you may choose our full portfolio, reds only, or just Pinot Noir. The choice is yours. As the founders and owners, we enjoy the flexibility of customizing our program to match your interests. Please note: The Reserve Pinot Noir is always an optional shipment.

"Dena Drews and Ernie Pink have been quietly producing some of Oregon's most elegant and perfumed Pinots since the 2004 vintage. Their 30-acre vineyard outside the town of Dallas, abutting the famed Freedom Hill vineyard where Drews and Pink live, is painstakingly farmed and yields are kept low so production of these wines is limited. Winemaking includes abundant use of whole clusters, which is no doubt responsible for the wines' exotic bouquets and sneaky structure…"

When a wine is ready to be enjoyed, we release it to the A-List first. Each wine’s 2 bottle shipment is discounted 10% from the winery retail price. We always have an event weekend when a wine is released so you can try one “on the house” instead of opening yours. You can either pick up at the winery, or we can ship when the weather is conducive.

Every time we release an A-List wine in your portfolio, you will receive 2 bottles at 10% off the winery retail price. The wines are released when we feel they are ready to be enjoyed, not necessarily on a set schedule. If we could only get Mother Nature on board…

All follow-on orders for any Amalie Robert Estate wines receive an A-List discount. No retail for you! Orders of less than 12 bottles receive a 10% discount. Orders of 12 bottles or more receive a 20% discount and free ground shipping anywhere in the continental US.

We also offer free tastings for A-List members and up to 4 guests throughout the year. You may choose to make an appointment for your party or join us for any of our scheduled open house weekends.
