2008 Cristom "Marjorie Vineyard" Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir

SKU #1081610 94 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Ruby-red with a bright rim. Heady aromas of black raspberry, cherry-cola, Asian spices and candied rose, with a vibrant mineral quality and a touch of woodsmoke. Finely delineated raspberry and cherry flavors show excellent depth, with zesty acidity giving shape to the wine. Strikingly elegant and precise pinot with serious finishing cling and persistent spiciness. Inner quote mark (8/2011)

Outer quote mark The 2008 Pinot Noir Marjorie Vineyard is the most elegant of the Cristom offerings. Medium ruby in color, its enticing bouquet shows off notes of smoke, cherry blossom, cinnamon, clove, cranberry, and raspberry. Intensely flavored, concentrated, and velvety-textured, it will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and drink well for a decade thereafter. I've said it before and I'll say it again, continuity and consistency are the keys to Cristom's success. The winemaking team led by Steve Doerner rose to the occasion, taking full advantage of the great raw materials provided by the 2008 vintage. Inner quote mark (10/2011)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dense and chewy, with blackberry and tar flavors, hinting at floral notes as the finish persists with intensity. Best from 2013 through 2018. 440 cases made. Inner quote mark (2/2012)
