Congratulations to Jacksonville's DANCIN Vineyards for being recognized by The Wine Enthusiast magazine for their excellent wines!
Four of DANCIN Vineyards wines scored 94 points with The Wine Enthusiast. The wines receiving the designation of "superb" include DANCIN’s 2012 Melodia Pinot Noir, 2012 Trata Pinot Noir, 2013 Chassé Chardonnay and 2013 Capriccio Chardonnay. Results are listed in the August 2015 issue.
The Melodia Pint Noir and the Capriccio Chardonnay are also noted as “Editors’ Choice,” a designation for wines with "unique qualities that merit special attention.” The Trata Pinot Noir and the Chassé Chardonnay are noted as “Cellar Selections,” or wines deemed "highly collectible.”
Two of the 94-point winners, one pinot noir and one chardonnay, were made from DANCIN's estate-grown grapes. The fruit for the other two 94-point wines came from the Willamette Valley.
The magazine also gave a score of 93 points to DANCIN's 2013 Chaîné Chardonnay 93 points and and “Editors’ Choice” designation. It scored 92 points for the 2012 Septette Pinot Noir, 2013 Chaustinelle Reserve Chardonnay and 2012 Danseur Syrah, and designated the Syrah an “Editors’ Choice.” The 2012 Pas de Trois Pinot Noir is awarded a 91.
Scores over 90 points bring increased attention at both the national and international levels. When local wines gain this type of recognition it acknowledges that Southern Oregon wines can compete at the highest level.
