Wines by Joe..anyone have the scoop

The tasting note in Wine Spectator on their 08 Pinot caught my eye, especially at the $19 price point. All the wines are smartly priced from $12 to $19. Anyone have any thought/input on the Pinot or other wines from their lineup? A good value? Similar to A to Z Wineworks?

These wines are made by Joe Dobbes. They are declassified wine from his Dobbes label and quite possibly a few other labels that Joe makes wine for, in his custom crush facility in Newburg. Generally good values.

FWIW, Meadows always rates these well too. Including Dobbes.

Disclaimer- I do sell Dobbes/Wine by Joe.
