A joint project from famed German producer Ernst "Dr." Loosen and acclaimed Oregon winemaker Jay Somers, they purchased a beautiful 40-acre property on Chehalem Mountain in 2010. Even though Dr. Loosen has been making Pinot Noir in the Pfalz for 10 years, it's not on anyone's radar. Oregon Pinot Noir is, and that's why Loosen dipped a toe into the market back in 2006. After early success, they have greatly expanded on their original 2,000 case production. Developing long term contract with heritage vineyards and planting their own estate, J. Christopher is a star on the rise!

Wine Enthusiast: 94 Points

"Boysenberries and cedar needles are the main aromas, flanked by notes of loamy soil and bittersweet dark chocolate. There is a beautiful balance here among bright red cherry fruit, silky tannins and energetic acidity. The wine feels silky and full in the mouth, with traces of iron and burnt sugar on a very long finish. " The Wine Enthusiast, 94 Points

Wine Spectator: 93 Points

"A supple wine, with elegance and dimension, this red has generous raspberry and strawberry flavors accented by black tea and stony minerality. Ends with refined tannins. Drink now through 2030." The Wine Spectator, 93 Points

James Suckling: 92 Points

"This has a fragrant and lifted nose of toasted citrus peel, ash, wild strawberries, raspberries and cinnamon stick. Field mushrooms, too. Delicious balance of fruity and savory, with a medium body, sleek tannins and a zesty finish. Unfiltered. Drink now or hold." James Suckling, 92 Points
