J. Christopher Pinot Noir Charlies Vineyard 2015 -- Vinous 93 Points
Regular price $58.00
Vinous 93 Points!
Winemaker Jay Somers has been making Oregon wine since the late 1990s, and then partnered with international wine star and bon vivant Ernest Loosen -- yes, that Loosen. With that deal he got a shiny new winery, and the quality of his wines jumped up a LOT. Now he's regularly garnering big scores for his pure, hand-made, authentic wines.
This has received a Vinous 93 Points with these notes: "Limpid ruby-red. A highly aromatic bouquet evokes fresh red and blue fruits, potpourri and Moroccan spices, and a smoky mineral nuance builds in the glass. Sappy, mineral-accented black raspberry, cherry cola and floral pastille flavors display excellent focus and building sweetness. Unfolds slowly with air and finishes with sharp delineation, harmonious tannins and strong, red-fruit-driven persistence."
