95 Points Decanter
Brilliant red. Powerful red berry liqueur, Asian spice and incense aromas are brightened by a smoky mineral nuance that builds steadily in the glass. Sappy, sweet and penetrating in the mouth, offering vibrant raspberry, cherry and floral pastille flavors joined by lively five-spice powder and white pepper accents. Spicy and seamless on the finish, showing silky, harmonious tannins and superb, floral-dominated persistence.
94 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2015 Pinot Noir Marjorie Vineyard leaps from the glass with notes of cherry cordial, violets, rose hip tea and chocolate box plus wafts of forest floor and black pepper. Medium-bodied, the palate is tautly structured with firm, grippy tannins and a great backbone of lively acidity, finishing with lingering earthy notes.
94 Points James Suckling
A wealth of flowers on the nose of this pinot noir such as roses, peonies and violets as well as red fruits in the red cherry and ripe cranberry spectrum. On the attack the beautiful acidity really surrounds the full-bodied palate with tangy fruit, but then the firm yet encompassing tannins come into play and ensure this finishes not just bright but really dense and structured. Delicious now but better in 2019.
91 Points Wine Spectator
Well-structured and rather brooding, with blueberry and cherry fruit accented by cinnamon, clove and stony minerality. Finishes with refined tannins. Best from 2019 through 2024.
Marjorie Vineyard can be the brightest and most red-fruit driven of the four estate Pinot Noirs, often supported by a layered and textured structure. A true example of terroir, the soil, elevation, climate, and vine age meet and produce a wine capable of great depth, complexity, and long-term age ability. The first of the single vineyards to be sold out, Marjorie has achieved a rightfully earned cult status, consistently generating some of Cristom’s best fruit.
