Year after year, Cristom's Mt. Jefferson Cuvee is easily our most requested Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley.
It is a multi-year Wine Spectator Top 100wine. And, it has been ranked the #1 Pinot Noir in "America's Best Restaurants" by Wine Enthusiast for the following five years: 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2018. It has also been an "Editor's Choice" by Wine Enthusiaston several releases.
Most importantly, it is a fantastic drinking Pinot Noir.
"A very spicy and fresh array of blueberries, ripe darker cherries and plums. Cassis aromas, too, as well as more savory notes of graphite and fragrant wood. The palate has very striking depth and presence with expansive, fleshy tannins carrying intense fruit flavors, in the darker spectrum of cherries and berries. Cocoa powder to close." James Suckling
What We Love About This Wine
Baking spice, bitter cherry, smoky red fruit, cedar, and tobacco ripple through a rustic texture. These are hallmark characteristics of each Mt. Jefferson Cuvee release. It is a compelling wine - especially at this price point.
While supplies last.
"This is very seductive on the nose with ripe strawberry, spice, flowers and hints of cloves. Full-bodied, but very reserved and tight with chewy, polished tannins and a long, long finish. Racy and structured."
"The caliber of the 2019 Mt. Jefferson Cuvée Pinot Noir, Cristom's largest-production SKU, is impressive this vintage. Medium ruby-purple, it features savory cranberry sauce, orange peel and tar aromas with tones of dried flowers and spice. The medium-bodied palate offers the pleasing, gently grippy tannins and bright freshness characteristic of Cristom's generous whole-cluster inclusion, and it finishes with intense, layered fruits and floral accents."
