    Winemaker's Notes:

    Jessie, named for Paul's paternal grandmother, is Cristom's steepest vineyard. It is the most diverse of the vineyards because it has the most variable soils and altitudes. The first release was the 1998 vintage

    Tasted with a year of bottle age, Jessie shows darker red fruits on the nose that mingle pleasantly with scents of tobacco leaf, plum and leather that reminded us of a new baseball glove. On the palate Jessie displays the classic Cristom texture that we would describe as ‘nervosity', meaning bright and lively with good structure. We tend to identify Jessie by the savory (towards rare beef), or floral notes (towards lavender), on the bouquet. More will be revealed with a few years in your cellar but don't be afraid to try a bottle the next time roast pork is on the menu.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright red. Raspberry and cherry-cola on the nose, with complicating notes of vanilla bean and Asian spices. Supple, round and quite exotic today, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and strong spiciness. Finishes with lingering notes of dark fruits, cherry-cola and sweet vanillin oak spice. The most primary of this set of 2007s today; I'd come back to it in a couple of years.

    The 2007 Pinot Noir Jessie Vineyard favors the darker fruit side of the spectrum. Cedar, earth notes, black cherry and black raspberry scents lead to a savory wine with emerging spice and mineral notes and a solid core of black fruit. It has enough ripe tannin to blossom for another 1-2 years. Drink it from 2011 to 2019. Continuity and consistency are the keys at Cristom; same family ownership, same winemaking team with Steve Doerner at the helm.
