J. CHRISTOPHER 'J.J' PINOT NOIR WILLAMETTE VALLEY
J. CHRISTOPHER

This second-label Willamette Valley wine is a blend of barrels from the three appellations where J. Christopher has long-standing grower relations. The winemaking and fruit sources are the same for all of the wines they produce, but through a top-down barrel selection process,  the barrels that are most suited to the very approachable J.J Pinot Noir style are chosen. It’s an appealing, fruit-forward expression of cool-climate Willamette Valley Pinot Noir.

Vineyard sources: Excellent sustainable and dry-farmed vineyards in three Willamette Valley AVAs: Dundee Hills, Chehalem Mountains and Eola-Amity Hills. 

Soil types: Volcanic and marine sediment. 

Clones: Pommard, Wadenswil, Dijon 115, 667 & 777. 

Vinification: 100% destemmed; native yeast fermentation; 20 months in barriques (25% new).
