  • Product Description

    Winemaker Notes

    The Eileen Vineyard is named for Cristom’s co-founder, Eileen Gerrie, mother of second-generation winegrower-owner Tom Gerrie. Original planting of the Eileen Vineyard began in 1997 and was later expanded in 2006, resulting in a total of 16.61 acres, (6.72 hectacres) and making Eileen our largest estate vineyard. Perched atop the Cristom estate, Eileen is also our highest-elevation vineyard, with commanding views of Oregon’s Cascade Range to the east, and Coastal Range to the west. Eileen’s maritime climate features moderately warm days with especially cool nights, allowing the vines to retain acidity, and produce intense aromas and flavors.

    James Suckling

    Very alluring, spice-laced, ripe red and black cherries, making a complex statement on the nose. The succulent and focused palate has a very considered feel with impressive balance and a long and focused, cherry core that delivers detailed textural allure. Drink or hold.

    The darkest, most muscular of the winery's 2016 Pinots, this is loaded with ripe black cherry fruit, wreathed in a whiff of smoke. There's a streak of cola and some lightly dusty tannins, and the length and texture argue for cellaring. Drink now–2030 and beyond.

    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

    Pale to medium ruby with a hint of purple, the 2016 Pinot Noir Eileen Vineyard has a bright, lively nose of red cherry and licorice with accents of charcuterie, dried leaves, fir, cola and dusty soil. Light to medium-bodied, it offers layers of black and red cherry and berry flavors in the mouth with a soft frame of baking spice and earthy notes. It's held together with firm, slightly fuzzy tannins and great juicy acidity, finishing long with sweet, ripe red fruits. 
    Rating: 92+

    Wine Spectator

    Graceful and precise, with an elegant core of complexity buoyed by expressive dark berry, black tea and river stone accents that lead to persistent yet refined tannins. Drink now through 2025.
