2013 Jessie Pinot Noir

Wine colour
USA > Oregon > Willamette Valley
Cristom Vineyards
Tasting Notes:

Jessie enjoys the steepest aspect of the estate and produces arguably the most Burgundian-like wine of all the single vineyard offerings. This 2013 has a delightful mix of spice, red fruits and fresh, brambly Pinot character. Drink. 2019-2024

Press Reviews:

`Ruby-red. Highly perfumed scents of dark berries, cola and rose oil. Fleshy, expansive black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors display a suave blend of richness and energy, picking up a spicy character with air. Finishes juicy and very long, with lingering dark fruit flavors and slow-building tannins. Drink 2019-2024.` 92 Points, Josh Raynold, Vinous `The 2013 Pinot Noir Jessie Vineyard contains some fruit that was picked before the rain. It has a satisfying red cherry and wild strawberry bouquet, a subtle flinty note underneath, very Burgundian in style. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin - plenty of sappy red fruit, hints of dried orange peel and a touch of sea-salt, well balanced with a Pommard-like finish. I find this has more to offer than the Eileen Vineyard this year and it comes recommended. Drink. 2017-2029.` 91 Points, Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

    Eileen is one of the oldest plots and sits atop the estate. This has an impressive sense of vibrancy and bite. There is nice power and intensity but as always the colour is light and delicate. Drink from 2018

    `No critical reviews of this wine but it looks set to win many friends, perhaps too many as there isn`t very much! The vintage is a good one and this wine is quite grandiose and intense with delicious tannins and sense of sophistication. Very limited.` Jason Haynes
