About the Wine

This flagship bottling from Cristom is a perfect representation of just what kind of Pinot Noir the Eola-Amity Hills can produce. With an extremely approachable style, and a backbone to support it, this is the perfect bottle for drinking today or ten years from now. Whether you are a staunch Burgundy drinker or if RRV Pinot is more your speed, this wine will deliver on every level. 

Mt. Jefferson Cuvée is a representation of the Cristom approach to winemaking from some of the finest vineyards in the Eola-Amity Hills with a focus on fruit from the estate. With a focus on whole clusters and native yeast, ‘Mt. Jeff’ is the foundation of the winery and flagship wine of the brand.

Bringing together biodynamic and organic farming methods, Cristom farms the land with the next 100-years in mind. The estate's wine-growing centers on the philosophy that the greatest expression of terroir produces the finest wines. The cornerstone of its winemaking is rooted in traditional methods – site selection, low yields, whole-cluster fermentation, and native yeasts – to produce balanced, dynamic wines of intensity, structure, and length.

Tasting Notes: 100% Pinot Noir.  A concentrated ruby color. The nose erupts with red fruit, lots of fresh berries, and ruby pomegranates. Secondary aromas of black tea and forest floor are easily coaxed out of the glass with a light swirl. On the palate, this is richly built around a strong backbone with a long and refreshing finish. 

Reviews

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. Try after 2024. ~97 James Suckling
