Winemaker's Notes

The fruit that is used in this wine comes entirely from Cristom's estate vineyard. It was planted in the early 80's. Only the best barrels from this vineyard actually make it into the "Marjorie" bottling. Because of relatively low plant density this vineyard is cropped even lower than Cristom's other low yielding estate vineyards at about 1.75 tons per acre. This bottling of Marjorie consists of the Pommard and Wadensville clones along with Dijon clones 777, 114 and 115 which were grafted onto older rootstocks.

This bright ruby colored young Marjorie has a sweet, succulent and juicy quality, with tannins that are polished and very appealing even at this youthful stage. It shows Pekoe tea leaf and dark spice aromas on the nose. It has good structure, a racy acidity, and a core of ripe fruit that will surely come harmoniously together with short to mid-term aging.
