Tasting Notes from "Sip & Shop" J. Christopher
Thank you to everyone involved for our successful "Sip & Shop" with J. Christopher.
For those who couldn't make it here is our tasting notes and prices.
2015 Cristo Irresisto (Pink) $15
An easy-drinking, passionate pink blend of mostly Grenache and Syrah, sourced from vineyards on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge. Simply irresistible.
2014 Cuvee Lunatique Chardonnay $20
A fresh, clean Chardonnay with no oak or malolactic fermentation.
2013 Dundee Hills Cuvee Pinot Noir $40
This cuvee is a blend of selected barrels from several excellent vineyard sites in the red Jory clay of the Dundee Hills AVA. It shows the depth and power that are typical of this area, with classic savory and saguine notes and a seamless acid structure.
2013 "Nuages" Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir $40
Named in tribute to one of the winemaker Jay's favorite gypsy jazz tunes, "Nuages" Pinot Noir is our Chehalem Mountains blend. Nuages (french for "clouds") also pays homage to the moderating influence of Oregon's autumn cloud cover, which slows ripening to allow for the long hang time that creates fully developed flavors.
2013 "Lumiere" Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir $40
A beautifully structured wine sourced from several sites in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. Dark in color, with beautiful depth. Crushed berry fruit is clearly revealed on the palate, supported by excellent grip on the mid-palate and a solid, strong-boned structure. 345 cases produced.
