J. Christopher, 2012 J. Christopher Pinot Noir Dundee Hills Cuvee

91
"The 2012 Pinot Noir Dundee Hills Cuvee comes from five vineyard sources, including Bella Vinda and La Colina. Picked October 11-18, 100% destemmed and matured for 20 months in oak barriques, it has a focused and vibrant bouquet with clean redcurrant and black plum fruit, with just a slight tinny quality coming through. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, understated on the entry, but very nicely balanced with a focused and elegant, feminine finish. There is a sense of suaveness about this Pinot Noir that ticks all the boxes."

2012 J. Christopher Pinot Noir Dundee Hills Cuvee

This cuvée is a blend of selected barrels from several excellent vineyard sites in the red Jory clay of the Dundee Hills AVA. It shows the depth and power that are typical of this area and makes a very interesting comparison to the “Nuages” cuvée from the rockier soil of the Chehalem Mountains AVA. The blend includes barrels from Bella Vida, La Colina, Meyer and Charlie’s vineyards.
