2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

2009 Vintage Wine Spectator - 91 points - Ripe flavors of blueberry and plum dance on a medium-weight frame, shaded by hints of pepper and clove, underlined by fine tannins. A hint of orange tea emerges on the finish. Drink now through 2017. 2,417 cases made. - H.S.

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

2007 Wine Advocate - 90 points - On the palate it has plenty of succulent fruit, good depth and concentration, and enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years. It will be at its best from 2011 to 2019 - Jay Miller

Cristom Sommers Reserve Pinot noir 06 is initially subtle. Scents blossom with a couple swirls of the glass. Fresh red fruit and baking spice leads into sweet raspberry and currant flavors, while an expansive marionberry streak billows near the finish. Little bits of chewy earth and classic Eola-Amity hills herbal spice round out the finish. Cristom Pinots gain in complexity and elegance with proper cellaring, or for the impatient (like me), decanting.
