Winemaker Notes

Tasted after one year in bottle. The attractive and complex aromas of raspberry and cocoa powder lead to a very balanced, textured and layered wine on the palate. The fruit flavors are buttressed by sweet vanilla and graham cracker notes. The wine has great nerve, persistent length and good potential for short to medium term cellaring.

Wine & Spirits
Drawn from five blocks on the Cristom property, this complex pinot has savory scents of olive and dried leaves, Christmas spice and black cherry. There's a definite fleshiness to the strawberry flavors, the earth and herb notes contrasting bright fruit, suggesting a pairing with roast salmon.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007 Pinot Noir Sommers Reserve is a barrel selection aged in 60% new oak. It exhibits an expressive nose of cinnamon, allspice, smoke, black cherry and black raspberry. On the palate it has plenty of succulent fruit, good depth and concentration, and enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years. It will be at its best from 2011 to 2019.

Connoisseurs' Guide
While it may not be the biggest or most muscular of Christom's line-up of Pinots, this wine earns our nod as the most complete of the bunch. Its very solid, nicely concentrated, ripe-cherry fruit is enriched by a careful complement of sweet oak, and, while quite well extracted, it has the balance to seem always light on its feet. Its bias to firmness makes us believers in its future, yet it is eminently tasty right now and is never so stiff as to dissuade early drinking.

California

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.
