J. Christopher Pinot Noir Abbey Ridge 2015 -- Vinous 93, WS 93, WE 93
Regular price $65.00
$69 / bottle
The Abbey Ridge Vineyard is located in the Dundee Hills AVA at an elevation of 500'-700'. The oldest parts of the vineyard were planted in 1979 with successive plantings in '87 and '99. It is considered a superior source of fruit, and the J. Christopher Pinot Noir Abbey Ridge has become their most highly vaunted cuvee based on critical reviews. Only 150 cases were made from the 2015 vintage, and the OPNC was lucky enough to score enough for our World Class Wine Club members.
This wine has received 93 Points from Vinous, The Wine Enthusiast AND The Wine Spectator. Here are the notes from Vinous: "Deep, vivid red. A sexy, expansive bouquet displays spice-accented cherry and black raspberry aromas that are complemented by suggestions of candied rose, star anise and succulent herbs. Sweet and focused on the palate, offering densely packed red and dark berry and spicecake flavors and floral pastille and cola flourishes. Rich yet vibrant in style, finishing with powerful, spicy thrust, supple, slow-building tannins and outstanding OregonPinotNoirDotComtenacity. - Josh Raynolds"
