From magnum. Really great wine but suffered from following the Clos Electrique

Top of the Cristom heap. An Oregon classic. This one balances red fruit and earthiness and lingers on. A great wine from a great producer.

Wow. One of my favorite Oregon wineries, and one of the best non-Burgundy pinots I've had in awhile.

Med red color. Stewed fruit, lifted notes of orange peel and drifting hints of va. Soft fruit of strawberry on the palate. Good balance with the light tannins. Lingers ~30 seconds.

The 2006 Cristom Marjorie Vineyard Pinot Noir is drinking pretty fine now; has plenty of stuffing and stays rich and almost velvety on the palate. A top effort! #pinotnoir #oregon #redwine #wine #willamettevalley

Everything im looking for in Pinot. Fruit and earth. High acidity. Subtle tannin. Rhubarb, strawberries, and grape stems. Ash, cola, and some spice from oak. Well done #Cristom!

2010 consumed in 2018. Cristom makes the best wine in Oregon for aging. This just gets proven, reiterated, and underscored time after time.

The Marjorie is the best block. Own rooted, old vine, and top of the hill. This wine is absolutely Burgundian in a world where "Burgundian" is way overused. Earthy, mushroomy, forest floor with cola and preserved cherry notes. A real eye opener for Burgundy enthusiasts.
