Wine Advocate
Cristom Vineyards, 2015 Cristom Pinot Noir Eileen Vineyard

"Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2015 Pinot Noir Eileen gives bold raspberry preserves and red currant jelly notes with suggestions of chargrill meat, truffles, forest floor and cedar. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers a solid backbone of grainy tannins and loads of freshness supporting the generous, muscular fruit, finishing with great persistence."
James Suckling
Cristom Vineyards, 2015 Cristom Pinot Noir Eileen Vineyard

"A very refined and elegant nose but one that jumps out with orange zest, cranberries, citrus, slate, sour cherries, herbs and even pink grapefruit. Medium to full body, a firm yet structured, dusty tannins backbone, really fresh acidity and a long, zippy finish. Delicious now but better in 2019."
Wine Spectator
Cristom Vineyards, 2015 Cristom Pinot Noir Eileen Vineyard

"Precise and refined, with restrained black raspberry, black tea and stony mineral flavors that build tension toward the finish. Drink now through 2024"
