New Dijon clone plantings at this well-established vineyard have cut down the leafy herbaceousness of past vintages. This is delicate, clean, lightly ripe, with hints of fresh tomato and pomegranate. It is the sort of Oregon Pinot that truly emulates cru villages Burgundy; light, appealing, and ready to drink.
