2009 Sommers Reserve Pinot Noir
The ‘Sommers’ is comprised of grapes from our four estate vineyards along with some purchased fruit. It contains fruit from fourteen vineyard sites. The Reserve designation indicates a longer aged barrel selection of our favorite lots. The final cuvee contains seven different Pinot Noir clones. Cristom introduced the “Sommers Reserve” with the 2004 vintage, replacing the Cristom Reserve designation and continuing stylistically as the same wine. ‘Sommers’ is Jessie’s (of Jessie Vineyard) maiden name.
