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.

August Briggs Winery is a family-owned winery in Napa Valley dedicated to producing very limited quantities of great wines from carefully selected vineyards across California’s North Coast counties. Owner Joe Briggs brings a quarter-century of winemaking knowledge in working with quality grape growers to produce our signature style of balanced wines with intense fruit character. Joe and his wife Sally welcome you to their winery home in Calistoga. August Briggs currently produces 16 different wines. Joe explains, "I let the grape supply dictate the wines I make now and in the future as well, so I'll be able to deliver different and interesting wines to my customers. One of my main focuses is to have fun with the wine. We probably won't ever be known for one particular wine, but rather making great wine in general." Come visit us at 333 Silverado Trail, on the south end of town, for a friendly greeting and some of the best single-vineyard and appellation-designated wine! Read less

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.
