2022 Dijon Clone Pinot Noir

2022 Dijon Clone Pinot Noir

Founder Jim Bernau traveled with the Oregon Governor's Delegation to Burgundy in the 1980s to seek out French clones to improve our state's quality. These vines were brought back and quarantined at Oregon State University before being propagated for use in Oregon vineyards. Naturally derived Dijon Clones from France being planted in the Willamette Valley was one of the greatest tipping points in Oregon wine quality.

On the Nose: The bright ruby hues illustrate a classically styled Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. Fresh aromas of strawberry, dried orange peel and potpourri delight the senses as the wine unfolds.

On the Palate: The palate provides further depth of flavor with bright cherry, red currant and black tea notes. The wine greets the palate with a warm, balanced mouthfeel of light tannins and natural acidity.

Food Pairings: This wine pairs well with savory food dishes and subtle sweet or savory sauces including seared scallops with strawberry balsamic glaze, cedar-plank salmon, chicken marsala and wood-fired flatbreads.

Peak Drinkability: 2023 - 2028
