CRISTOM PINOT NOIR JESSIE VINEYARD
CRISTOM VINEYARDS

100% Pinot Noir (Dijon 113, 114, 115, 667, 777 & Pommard)

VINEYARD: Jessie Sommers, Jessie Vineyard is the steepest on the Cristom property (240-545 feet). It is also the vineyard with the greatest elevation change and most diverse soils - mainly volcanic-basalt based. Planted entirely in a west-east row orientation, all of the vines are farmed Sustainably.

Named after Paul Gerrie's paternal grandmother, the views from the top of the east-facing Jessie Vineyard are some of Cristom's most spectacular. On a clear day, the Cascade Mountains (including Mts. Jefferson, Hood, and Adams) sparkle.

WINEMAKING: Hand harvested and hand sorted fruit, 49% whole clusters. Native yeast fermentations, 1-3 punch-downs daily in 1-5 ton open-top fermenters. Gently pressed in a pneumatic bladder press, moved to barrel by gravity and never racked, unless necessary. Undergoes a full malolactic fermentation in barrel. Fined with egg whites, unfiltered.

AGING: 18 months in French cooperage, & 52% new oak.
