Dr. Owen Bargreen

The Louise Vineyard was the first vineyard planted by Cristom, and consists of 9-acres of Pinot Noir vines planted with Dijon clones 113, 114, 115, 777 and Pommard. The 2016 is simply fantastic, as it begins with beautiful aromatics of black tea and red currants that combine with forest floor and black truffle undertones that add wonderful complexity. The palate is plush and textured, showing wonderful combination of viscosity and tension as flavors of black fruits that connect with peat moss and black truffle oil. While already sinfully good, this stunning Pinot Noir shold continue to evolve beautifully over the next ten to fifteen years. Drink 2019-2034

Extreme smoothness. Has hints of smoke, leather, berries, citrus. Would absolutely drink again.
