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.

Cristom Winery Image

Cristom Vineyards began a quarter of a century ago as a collaboration between an engineer and a biochemist who each possessed a deep-rooted respect for the land, the natural winemaking process, and Pinot Noir. 25 years later, second-generation winegrower and owner Tom Gerrie leads winemaker Steve Doerner and our tenured viticulture team in tending our Estate vineyards, and producing elegant, dynamic wines, recognizable by our hallmark style of whole-cluster fermentation by native yeasts. 

Our winemaking philosophy begins with respect for our land and estate vines. We're proud to be Certified Sustainable by Low Input Viticulture & Enology (LIVE), both in our winery which we run responsibly, and in our fields, that are thoughtfully and meticulously farmed with a focus on quality.

The four estate Pinot Noir vineyards - Eileen, Jessie, Louise and Marjorie, named for Gerrie family matriarchs - each possess natural variances in soil, elevation and exposition. With minimal intervention during the winemaking process, Tom, Steve and team strive to craft wines that are an honest recording of both the vineyard and the vintage, producing the ultimate expressions of the stellar fruit we’re fortunate enough to work with. Recognized globally as a leading producer in our beloved Willamette Valley, our wines continue to be a unique blend of tradition, modernity and finesse.

Home of some of the planet’s most amazingly elegant and expressive Pinot noir, the Willamette Valley is a pastoral, mixed landscape of green, bucolic rolling hills, dramatic forestlands and small, independent, friendly wine growers. As a leader in environmental stewardship, the valley has some of the nation’s most protective land use policies, with two-thirds of its vineyards farmed sustainably and over half, organically. While the valley claims a cool, continental climate, and is heavily influenced by the cold, moist winds of the Pacific Ocean, its warm and dry summers allow for the steady, even ripening of Pinot noir.

The potential of Willamette Valley Pinot noir continues to attract the investment of serious growers and winemakers both locally and from abroad, as naturally the finished wines bring accolades from professionals and enthusiasts. With a range of styles from delicate dried cherry, raspberry and hibiscus to stronger notes of truffle, mocha, plum and spice, a fine Willamette Valley Pinot noir is a perfect expression of both character and grace.
