Eileen Vineyard tends to produce a wine that is the most precocious of our four estate vineyards and it's often the first wine we release into the market. It is always the wine we show first in a line-up of Cristom Pinot Noir. We often find them softer, meaning rounder on the palate with less minerality. Typically, Eileen is textured, layered and creamy on the palate and often recognizable by its bouquet of sweet spices.
"Dark red. Flamboyantly spicy nose features fresh rose, cinnamon, clove, wild strawberry, raspberry and smoked meat. Very sweet and silky, with finely etched red berry and baking spice flavors reaching every corner of the palate. Finishes lively and long, with spicy red fruit flavors showing wonderful clarity and energy."
