We have a major "insider" Pinot noir deal for you—a single-vineyard wine from one of the Willamette Valley's most famous neighborhoods, made by a celebrated winemaker—with a fun name, label, and price. Oh, and it's fantastic, too!
Introducing J.C. Somers Joie de Chien Dundee Hills 2021, made by Jay Somers who after a stint at Cameron launched his J. Christopher winery. Jay's newest project is J.C. Somers, one which sees him rely on deep relationships with top-notch growers. Part of the "insider" info: Jay's '21 Joie de Chien is 100% Nicholas Family Vineyard, formerly Bella Vida, a mere driveway from the legendary Maresh Vineyard. Mostly Pommard clone and a little Wadenswil clone Pinot noir from vines nearing 25 years-old, it has outsized character for its humble price.
The name Joie de Chien—joy of dog—references Jay's love of dogs and specifically German Shepherds which have long been integral members of his family. You don't have to be a dog-lover to love this wine; all you need is an appreciation for outstanding and authentic Pinot noir at a great price. Last piece of critical info for such a tasty deal: tiny production means you should pounce on it like a dog on dinner!
I've been sipping on a bottle since Monday evening and I know what fantastic Willamette Valley Pinot smells and tastes like, and this is it! The depth and texture of single-vineyard Pinot noir without the price, this is a joy to open and sip any night of the week and impressive enough for special occasions. I like it so much I threw out the usual flavor descriptors—it's an amazing mouthful of Dundee Hills deep red fruits with elegance to spare. Hurray and grab some while you can! -Marcus
