2012 Signature Cuvée Pinot Noir
94 pts– 2012 Signature Cuvée Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley
"Vivid red. Deeply pitched cherry-cola, sandalwood and spicecake scents, along with suggestions of blood orange and smoky minerals. Stains the palate with energetic red and dark berry liqueur flavors complemented by deeper anise and bitter chocolate nuances. Shows alluring sweetness and spiciness on the silky, focused, gently tannic finish, with the red berry and spice notes repeating. This is only the fifth time this special limited barrel selection from multiple vineyards has been offered since Cristom was established in 1992. Drinking window: 2019-2025"
