2016 Cristom 'Marjorie Vineyard' Pinot Noir

Oregon | Pinot Noir
"Medium ruby in color with a hint of purple, the 2016 Pinot Noir Marjorie Vineyard is scented of raspberry jam, cinnamon stick, black cherries and cardamom with notes of autumn leaves and porcini mushroom. Medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with dark fruits and spicy/earthy accents, held together with fine, firm tannins and mouthwatering acidity, finishing long and spicy. Drink 2019 - 2024."
94 Points, Erin Brooks of Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Cristom wines usually reflect some sort of tension between smoky, whole-cluster spice flavors and firmly expressed, finely wrought fruit. This 2016, from Marjorie, an 8.5-acre site on the lower slopes of the property, reflects a generous vintage with a smoky, Volnay-like suppleness, a velvety texture and gentle persistence, like waves lapping on a lakeshore. It lasts like this for days after opening, the flavors delicate and complex as it mingles with air."
