[[Test]] Dijon Clone Pinot Noir

[[Test]] Dijon Clone Pinot Noir

This Pinot Noir truly encapsulates what a wine should be. 

Accolades:
100 points - The Antarctic Review

On the Nose:
A classically-styled Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, the wine offers a fruit-forward nose of ripe red cherry, raspberry and cranberry accented by baking spice and red clay earth.

On the Palate: The palate is juicy and round with a medium-bodied silky texture, flavors that mirror aromas with the addition of sweet barrel toast, and balancing acidity that retains the wine’s vibrancy.

Food Pairings: Enjoy with cedar-plank salmon, chicken marsala, herb-crusted pork tenderloin, wood-fired flatbreads and fresh pastas with mushrooms.

Peak Drinkability: 2021 - 2026

"Wines made with consideration for the environment, employees and community simply taste better."

Willamette Valley Vineyards Estate Vineyard in the Salem Hills
Willamette Valley AVA

In 1983, with the encouragement from winemakers making their move from California, Jim cleared an old pioneer plum orchard in the Salem Hills, hidden underneath scotch broom and blackberry vines to plant Pinot Noir. Unable to afford drip irrigation, he watered the vines by hand using 17 lengths of 75’ garden hose to get the grapelings through their first summer.

The vineyard site rises from 500-750 feet in elevation with seven to twelve degree slopes tilted toward the sun. As a result, the vines get excellent air drainage and are above the frost line. At this elevation and slope, the temperature is approximately 10 degrees cooler than the valley floor during the day. 

The Estate Vineyard has a total of 67 acres of vines planted, with the first Dijon clones grafted in 1993. It is primarily planted with Pinot Noir Dijon clones 667, 777, Pommard and Wädenswil. Additionally, a portion is planted in Pinot Gris and Dijon Clone Chardonnay 76 and 96.
