Winemaker's Notes:

"Light red color. Sexy strawberry and raspberry aromas are complicated by tomato leaf and baking spices. Red fruit flavors display a jammy, sweet character and are enlivened by juicy acidity. This racy, sharply focused, light-bodied wine leads with red fruit today and is very easy to drink." Stephen Tanzer
International Wine Cellar
My Notes:

About Cristom Vineyards:

Utilizing Old World winemaking techniques - whole clusters, native yeast fermentation, and gentle and minimal handling - Cristom handcrafts wines that are smooth, elegant and subtle.

These characteristics have earned Cristom distinction among wine enthusiasts and industry leaders alike, including being named 'Best New World Red' by Decanter magazine.

Our 65-acre estate in the Eola Hills of Oregon's Willamette Valley offers a long growing season, mild climate, warm winds and ancient volcanic soils that make it ideally suited to grow Pinot Noir and other traditional French varietals.
