2016 Cristom Pinot Noir Marjorie Vineyard$64.99
Vinous (Josh Raynolds) 94 points! "Vivid red. A complex, expansive bouquet evokes ripe cherry, dark berries, potpourri, vanilla and Indian spices. A smoky mineral quality builds in the glass. Deeply pitched black raspberry, cherry liqueur, mocha and floral pastille flavors show excellent precision, building sweetness and an exotic touch of five-spice powder. Unfurls slowly with air and finish
Wine Advocate (Erin Brooks) 94 points! Medium ruby in color with a hint of purple, the 2016 Pinot Noir Marjorie Vineyard is scented of raspberry jam, cinnamon stick, black cherries and cardamom with notes of autumn leaves and porcini mushroom. Medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with dark fruits and spicy/earthy accents, held together with fine, firm tannins and mouthwatering acidity, finishing long and spicy.
