ryansnyder reviewed Cristom Vineyards Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Jessie Vineyard 2004 on May 27, 2007
The aromas wafting from this Pinot change with every sniff, from coffee to lemon zest to bacon to peppermint to lavender. Black cherry up front that evolves into a stewed strawberry mixed with the aforementioned aromatics mid-palate. Fantastic structure, filled with complexities, and still maintains a great balance. This, in my opinion, is a truly remarkable Pinot Noir.
