Suckling 97 Points
You cannot beat the thirty-six years of winemaking experience of Cristom's Steve Doerner. He's a winemaker's winemaker, and this entire lineup is juicy and vibrant. Few Oregon wines cellar as well as these.
From Suckling: "A very distinctive nose with a wild array of red berries and cherries and a thread of blue fruit, too. There's a dried wild-rose perfume and a violet-like thread with subtle, herbal-based notes. It's a moving target in the glass with incredible complexity. This has a gift of revelation. The palate has a very assertive edge with a powerful core of intense tannins that carry a spicy thread of rich dark cherries and dark plums in a defined, savory and athletic stance. A star of the vintage. Drink over the next decade or more."
