Tasting Note                         

90  2008  Cristom  Eileen  Pinot Noir (Eola-Amity Hills)    10/1/12 ($50)

  14.0% alc
Color: Medium black cherry. (3.0) Bouquet: Mint complements candied black cherry and cranberry. (3.0) Body: Excellent acidity and fruit with slight heat. (3.0) Flavor: Parallels bouquet. (3.0) Finish: Has length, but more simple than the bouquet. (3.0)
Overall: Excellent acidity drives tart, tangy black cherry fruit with nice concentration and a nuance of fresh mint. Excellent now and in the next few years, but may not have the complexity to improve. (15.0)
