Mt. Jefferson Cuvee is Cristom's flagship Pinot Noir. The longer "hang-time" for the fruit in 2018 created brighter, blue-fruited wines. Showing surprising complexity and firm structure in its youth, this wine will age well for years to come.
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. Drink or hold.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Cristom Mt. Jefferson Cuvée Pinot Noir is appealing and endearing. TASTING NOTES: This wine brings ripe red fruit aromas and flavors that stay long though the wine's finish. Enjoy it with grilled lamb. (Tasted: August 22, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
