CRISTOM VINEYARDS Pinot Noir "Jessie Vineyard" 2014

(Eola-Amity Hills, Willamette Valley, Oregon) $60

The most delicate Oregon pinot noirs are like watercolors in a world of oil paintings. Ethereal and fragile, they seemed feather-brushed onto the canvas of flavor. Cristom’s five pinot noirs are all like this, but the one I find most nuanced is the pinot from “Jessie’s Vineyard” with its notes of cranberry, tea, and exotic spices. Surprisingly light on the palate, it feels like something made by angels rather than guys in work boots. When you’re in the mood for a wine that’s more quiet class than Kardashian, this could be it.
