2016 Charlie's Vineyard Pinot Noir

Charlie’s Vineyard is a very special place - the first vineyard Jay worked with to produce J. Christopher's inaugural vintage in 1996 and the only wine we produced for the first three years. Right in the heart of Dundee on Worden Hill Road, this vineyard produces a wine with an earthy depth, and aromatic charm.

From one of Jay Somers’s original vineyard sources, this wine demonstrates the simple beauty and charm of a J. Christopher pinot. It feels generous and forward but also a touch resinous and savory, leavened by scents of cedar, red earth and dried mushroom. The umami elements seem to lengthen the flavors, for a finish that’s generous and vibrant.

Spirited and well-built, with expressive cherry and hibiscus aroma that open to lively pomegranate and spiced tea flavors, finishing with polished tannins. Drink now through 2024.—T.F.

Limpid ruby-red. Displays assertive aromas of black raspberry, cherry, baking spices, savory herbs and fresh flowers. Silky, sweet and incisive on the palate, offering musky dark fruit and floral pastille flavors complemented by spicecake, earth and smoky mineral flourishes. Smooth and floral on the persistent finish, which is given shape by finely woven tannins. (all de-stemmed fruit and 25% new French oak)
