Review:

2010 Vintage Wine Spectator - 92 points - Fresh and vibrant, offering depth without weight, with dark berry, plum and spice flavors that hint at savory sage and tobacco as the finish lingers effortlessly. Drink now through 2020. - H.S.

2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

2009 Wine Advocate - 93 points - Incorporating the estate’s steepest slopes – and, according to the geologists, featuring seven distinct variations on eroded basalt, at widely differing depths – Cristom’s 2009 Pinot Noir Jessie Vineyard. is loaded with sweetly-ripe dark cherry and plum wreathed in bittersweet iris and gentian; silken in its polished texture; and compulsively mouthwatering in its evocation of meaty, fatty, subtly saline pan scrapings. Fresh ginger and white pepper as well as a cyanic hint of fruit pit add piquant, pungent invigoration to an almost unstoppably juicy finish. There is a weightier sense of richness here than in the corresponding Eileen but no less complexity and an even more impressive sheer persistence. Look for a dozen if not more years of satisfaction. - David Schildknecht

2009 Wine Enthusiast - 93 points - Stylish, precise, elegant and evocative, the Jessie may be the best of an excellent single-vineyard lineup from Cristom in 2009. Light toast rims deep black-fruit flavors, with excellent concentration. The lengthy finish brings in streaks of espresso and clean earth. This has the balance and detail to reward significant cellaring. - Paul Gregutt

Flavors of dark black fruit followed by a long finish with hints of earthy minerality and roasted coffee. Approachable now, this wine will cellar well for many years.

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

2008 Tanzer - 93 points

Displays aromas of blackberry, cherry, and plum. Flavors of the fruits are joined by allspice, leather, toast, and blackberry liqueur. A core of dark, rich fruit finishes the wine, with tannins and acidity giving place to deep flavors.

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

2007 Wine Advocate - 90 points - ..a savory wine with emerging spice and mineral notes and a solid core of black fruit. It has enough ripe tannin to blossom for another 1-2years. Drink it from 2011-2019. - Jay Miller
