This was terrific. Pretty nose of rose petal and crushed rock. Great acid and balance on the palate with classic light berry flavors.

Been tasting the Cristom Pinots lately. Louise Vineyard is heavier than the others, deep red with a big bouquet of red fruit aromas and aromatic spices. On the palate, raspberry and blackberry flavors with cacao notes in a bright spice. The wine comes off very smooth, light acidity and lingers to an almost creamy finish, holding on to its fruit.

Bursting with baking spices. Silky soft texture. A favorite willamette producer.
