2013 Marjorie Pinot Noir

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

Brilliant ruby-red. Exotic, highly expressive aromas of raspberry liqueur, Asian spices, cola and smoky minerals, with a suave floral overtone building in the glass. Sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering intense red and dark berry and spicecake flavors given spine by juicy acidity. A distinctly elegant, seamless Pinot Noir with superb finishing energy; the gentle tannins are quickly absorbed by the wine`s vibrant fruit. A standout of its vintage. Drink. 2019-2024

Press Reviews:

`The 2013 Pinot Noir Marjorie Vineyard comes from a low-density planted vineyard affected by phylloxera (in 2012 one barrel of younger vines was added, and in 2013 it is around 10% of the production.) It has an elegant and floral bouquet, chalky in style, reserved but with plenty of finesse. I like this reserved style of Pinot Noir. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly leafy opening, the sappy red berry fruit borrowed from the Jessie Vineyard, with a dash of spice towards the finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. This is very fine, again, very Burgundian and persistent, a 2013 that has the foundations to give a decade or more drinking pleasure. Drink. 2018-2028.` 92 Points, Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com
