Matt Kramer Chooses J. Christopher as a Wine of the Year

We’re thrilled to share that Wine Spectator’s Matt Kramer chose J. Christopher Pinot Noir Eola-Amity Hills “Lumière” 2012 as one of his picks for wine of the year, declaring winemaker Jay Somers “one of Oregon’s finest winemakers.”

In his December 31, 2014 Wine Spectator column, Kramer wrote: “The 2012 Pinot Noir called Lumière leaped out when I tasted it for its rich fruit allied with an unusual degree of flavor delineation and easily discerned mineral notes. I was surprised by its exquisiteness in a vintage that trades more in dramatic fruitiness.”
