Food Pairings for Cristom Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Sommers Reserve
Nose of black cherry, with some earth. Cherry flavors abound on the palate, with that typical Oregon leather/earthy component that is so delicious. A touch of asian spice as well. Tasty! Excellent - 88 points.
"The 2006 Pinot Noir Sommer Reserve is a barrel selection. Medium ruby-colored, it exhibits a spicy, toasty, red fruit perfume. This leads to a rich, dense, red fruit-dominated wine with a silky palate feel and a persistent, fruit-filled finish. Drink it over the next five years. Continuity is the custom at Cristom Vineyards where the founder Paul Gerrie remains at the helm and the original winemaker, Steve Doerner still fashions world-class Pinot Noirs."91 pointsJay Miller, Wine Advocate # 179, Oct 2008
