    "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!" ~ Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate

    From the American epicenter of Pinot Noir we've got the Brick House Les Dijonnais Pinot Noir. Parker's Wine Advocate calls it lovely, and we feel the same way. Holiday goose, turkey and lean meats alike will pair beautifully with this smooth, velvety red, as will meaty apps and hors d'oeuvres. We like a glass on its own by the fire... Either way, this Les Dijonnais is a no-brainer for a delicious meal or conversation.

    Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "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." Nov 2018

    Wine Spectator: "Sleek and harmonious, with effortlessly complex violet, raspberry and river stone accents that take on richness toward a lingering finish. Drink now through 2025." Nov 2018 (Advance)

    Winery:  "Rolling gently from the estate’s north boundary fence to the foot of the Douglas firs in their 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."
