2017 Estate Vineyard

The J. Christopher winery and our estate vineyard, Appassionata, are located in the Chehalem Mountains AVA. Elevation in this AVA ranges from 200 to 1,633 feet, and temperatures and rainfall can vary widely. The soil in this AVA is amazing, encompassing everything from sedimentary sea beds to red volcanic soils to glacial sediment. In our own vineyard, Appassionata, we have counted 11 different soil types. With the variations in aspect and soil, we have at least 10 or 12 distinctly different terroir possibilities to work with. It's a really interesting piece of property geologically, which makes it fascinating viticulturally as well.

Just two barrels of this limited-production were wine produced. Bright, tart red-berry fruits come with a salty tang, showing excellent focus and length. Tuck this away for another couple of years and it should blossom. Drink from 2022. —P.G.

93 | J. Christopher 2017 Chehalem Mountains Estate Pinot Noir

A tiny production from a south-facing vineyard overlooking the J. Christopher winery, this pinot noir leads with lovely scents of cinnamon, mace and strawberry. The wine is succulent and supple, its spiciness lingering with its dusty tannins, leaving a lasting impression of gentleness. —P.J.C. (56 cases)
