Oregon Pinot....Please Help Me Understand

pinotho | Oct 15, 2012 02:17 PM

from a Jon Bonne column on Oregon Pinot Noir that ran in Sunday's San Francisco Chronicle:

"To be fair, we did encounter a lot of dark-fruited, Dijon-clone muscle out there; it's nearly as endemic up north as down here. But that's not the only expression from all those vine selections of 115 and 777 (which, let's remember, migrated here from the north) and it is, I think, less a sign of innate quality than of style creep extending to the Northwest."

Is he saying that clones 115 and 777 migrated from Oregon to California? If so, does anyone know if this is accurate? Thanks.
