"Medium ruby in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir les Dijonnais has a classic nose of red cherries and berries with nuances of spiced cranberries and wonderful layers of earth and mineral: cola, wood smoke, dusty earth, dried tea leaves and touches of cracked pepper. Medium-bodied and silky textured, it fills the mouth with warm red fruits that carry the layers of earth and spice on the mouthwatering, layered finish. This is lovely! 650 cases produced." (WA)

Winery Notes:
Rolling gently from our north boundary fence to the foot of the Douglas firs in our woods, the brick house looks out over eight acres of Dijon clone vines planted on a full south slope. Since 1998, they have supplied superior fruit that continues to win critical acclaim. The “Les Dijonnais” Pinot Noir represents the best barrels from this warm site. In contrast with the Pommard clone bottlings, the “Les Dijonnais” Pinot Noir offers a more floral interpretation of the grape, often displaying hints of rose petal and meadow flowers.

The first wine from the Dijon block-the 1998 “Les Dijonnais” was awarded 94 points from the Wine Spectator and the block has excelled in quality with age.
