When Steve Doerner started at Cristom back in the early 1990s, he was an immediate star and influencer. While Oregon is now aglitter with famous winemakers, no one can claim more experience or a more consistent high level of winemaking than Doerner and Cristom Vineyards.
From the Parker's The Wine Advocate: "Medium ruby colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir Jessie Vineyard is a touch reticent on the nose, opening to broody scents of black cherries and licorice with notes of herbs, bergamot and grated baking spice with earthy touches of soil and wet leaves. Medium to full-bodied and wonderfully silky in the mouth, it's packed with layers of ripe fruit, spice and earth. It gives fine, firm tannins and mouthwatering acidity, finishing very long and very layered. This is wonderfully complex with loads of layers-give it some time in bottle to show its best."
