August Briggs Pinot Noir Dijon Clones 2007

Member Review by Gantt Hickman:

Great color. Looks very pure. Stawberry on the nose. Started it with too much acid but the became nice and crisp. While it has much fruit it also has plenty of earth. Seems to have a bit of a pleasent soil feel. Great weight in the mouth. Light but not too light. Nothing worse than a watery Pinot Noir and that is NOT the case with this one. A little more acidic on the finish but has dark cherry taste at the end.

Grown at the Green Island vineyard in the very cool south end of Napa, this wine has a very fragrant nose of plum, black cherry and dark berries. There are dense flavors of concentrated cherry, berry pie, strawberry, spice, and vanilla oak. It is fruit-forward and juicy.
