"The 2009 Pinot Noir Charlie’s Vineyard was sourced from a 40 year old parcel directly adjacent to the Cameron Winery. Fragrant black raspberries, exotic spices, incense, and sandalwood inform the nose of a succulent, plush, layered Pinot that deftly combines depth, concentration, and elegance, the secret to success in 2009.

J. Christopher Wines (the winery of guitar aficionado Jay Somers) has not been reviewed in these pages since the 2001 vintage. Given the quality of this collection of wines, he must have been in hibernation or taking lessons from the elusive John Thomas. Better late than never! The following wines generally are aged for 16-20 months in 25% new French oak." (WA)

Winery Notes:
We are proud to be the first and only winery ever to make wine from this excellent vineyard. One of the great sites of the Dundee Hills, the three-acre Charlie’s Vineyard has produced great wine for J. Christopher since 1996. The 2009 offers aromas of dark fruits, leather and earth, with an expansive palate of even more dark fruit, balanced by a harmonious structure of tannin and acidity. Truly excellent wine.
