2010 J. Christopher “Nuages” Chehalem Mountains Terroir Series Pinot Noir

335 cases, $35. A tribute to Django Rheinhart’s “Nuages,” one of Jay’s favorite gypsy jazz tunes. Sourced from Adams, Lia’s and Olenik vineyards located nearby in the Chehalem Mountains. · Light reddish-purple color in the glass. Impressive thrust of mountain raspberry flavor caressed by mild, grippy tannins. A delicious wine with vibrant fruitiness that finishes on a refreshing, acid-driven note. Very good.
