"Brilliant red. Sexy, highly perfumed aromas of fresh dark berries, candied rose, allspice and smoky minerals, with a hint of vanilla in the background. Zesty and incisive on the palate, offering juicy black raspberry and floral pastille flavors and a bracing suggestion of blood orange. In a graceful style but not at all lacking for depth or power. Closes sweet and long, with lingering spiciness and slow-building tannins. -JR"

2012 J. Christopher Pinot Noir 'Nuages'
J. Christopher

Named in tribute to one of winemaker Jay’s favorite gypsy jazz tunes, the 2012 Nuages Pinot Noir was selected from Adams, Lia's and Olenik Vineyards in the Chehalem Mountains AVA. Nuages (French for “clouds”) also pays homage to the moderating influence of Oregon’s autumn cloud cover, which slows ripening to allow for the long hang time that creates fully developed flavors.
