Cristom 'Eileen Vineyard' Pinot Noir 2008
Stephen Tanzer 93
"Vivid ruby. Sexy, highly expressive aromas of red and dark berries, cherry-cola, incense and cinnamon. Fleshy and expansive in the mouth, offering sappy but seamless flavors of raspberry and blackberry. Picks up a smoky note with air and finishes with excellent clarity, power and length. You could drink this now but it's built to age."

"The 2008 Pinot Noir Eileen Vineyard sports a super-fragrant perfume of earth notes, mineral, underbrush, spice box, black cherry, and black raspberry that jumps from the glass. Dense and layered on the palate, this plush, smooth-textured Pinot has the structure and balance to evolve for 3-4 years. Its drinking window will extend from 2013 to 2023."


"The Eileen Vineyard is the northern-most vineyard in the Cristom plot. The 12 acres are planted with 4 different Pinot Noir clones including the pommard clone. At 550 - 700 feet above sea level, it provides an ideal climate and growing conditions for the fruit. The vines were planted in 1997 and provide a fresh, young, juicy but restrained wine." ~ Winery notes
About Cristom
Cristom Vineyards

It was the promise of great wines that first drew Paul and Eileen Gerrie, owners of Cristom Vineyards, to Oregon. They conceived of a place where the succulent Pinot Noir grape could achieve its fullest expression – complex, hand crafted wines that are bold yet balanced: both powerful and elegant. Their wines evolve as they age, revealing ever grater richness and complexity with time. The abundance of soils and slopes in the hills of Oregon defined the Gerrie's vision of world class Pinot Noir. The warm winds of summer held the promise of rich Chardonnay, the cool sunny autumn yielded tart Pinot Gris. Since the inaugural vintage in 1992, the Gerries, along with winemaker Steve Doerner, have been producing wines that are considered the benchmark in Oregon and have made Cristom, named after their children, Christine and Tom, a veritable household name.
