One aspect of understanding Pinot Noir is clonal selection. This unique set of single-clone Pinots explores this concept over four vintages, and includes some of the most widely planted clones in the Willamette Valley:

Dijon 115 

  • Origin/Source: Morey St Denis (Cote d'Or)
  • Cluster: Small to average, spherical or short elliptical shape; colorful.
  • Profile: Medium to deeply red hued, with aromas and flavors of rose petal, red cherry, and black raspberry. Medium to full bodied, with soft tannins and balanced acidity. 
  • First planted in 1992; component in our Rebecca's Reserve and Cardiac Hill Pinots.

Dijon 777

  • Also one of the numbered clones from the University in Dijon, Burgundy
  • Early ripening. Produces small clusters and berries. Wines have rich color and more tannins, with a very spicy profile.
  • First planted in 2001. Usually blended into the Estate Pinot Noir.
  • We like this clone! In 2019, we field grafted 0.6 acres of Muller-Thurgau over to 777, tripling our acreage.

Pommard

  • From Pommard, Burgundy
  • Medium-sized clusters, often with shoulders
  • Produces balanced, elegant wines suitable for aging
  • One of the first clones of Pinot Noir brought into the US
  • The first clone of Pinot Noir planted at Kramer Vineyards in 1984
  • Present in our Estate, Cardiac Hill, Rebecca’s Reserve, and Heritage Pinot Noirs

Wädenswil

  • Burgundian in origin, this clone migrated to Switzerland, and is named after a municipality there. Commonly referred to as the Swiss clone of Pinot Noir.
  • Medium-sized clusters with narrow shoulders
  • A particular favorite clone of Yamhill-Carlton AVA growers
  • Produces floral Pinots with focused fruit and broad tannins
