Cristom 'Louise Vineyards' Pinot Noir 2009
Stephen Tanzer 93+
"Vivid red. Sexy, floral-accented aromas of raspberry preserves and cherry-cola, with intense spice and mineral accents adding vivacity. Juicy, incisive red fruit flavors become sweeter with air and pick up notes of spicecake and anise. Vanilla and cola notes linger on a very long, sappy, subtly smoky finish. This wine benefits a lot from decanting."

"This is the oldest of our estate Pinot Noir vineyards that we began planting in 1993 to new clones and at high density. It is a selection of our favorite barrels from the vineyard. The vineyard now consists of Dijon clones 113,114, and 115 along with the Pommard clone all planted at 2300 vines to the acre. The site has a southeast slope and is comprised primarily of Ritner soil which is volcanic in origin." ~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.
