2011 Sommers Reserve Pinot Noir

2011 Sommers Reserve Pinot Noir

91 Points - 2011 Sommers Reserve Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley
Deep red. Vibrant red berry and peppery spice scents are deepened by notes of cola and mocha. Silky but penetrating, showing excellent clarity to its raspberry and bitter cherry flavors. Becomes more floral with air and finishes smoky and long, with resonating spiciness and silky tannins. Drinking window: 2017-2020. - Antonia Galloni, Vinous

91 Points - 2011 Sommers Reserve Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley
The 2011 Pinot Noir Sommers Reserve contains a higher percentage of estate fruit compared to the Mt. Jefferson, around 80%, and is treated like the single-vineyard–matured for 18 months in around 50% new oak. It includes 50% whole-cluster fruit. It has a mellow, natural bouquet with lifted brambly red berry fruit with touches of bay leaf and autumn leaves. I like the delineation here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite crisp and reserved at first, but it gently fans out with pretty red berry fruit mixed with plenty of dried herbs. This adheres to Cristom’s classic style, much more Old World inspired than its peers, and certainly well crafted. - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
