Cristom Mt. Jefferson Cuvee Pinot Noir 2017
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
James SucklingAn attractive array of rich red to dark cherries that delivers a fine layer of perfume and a wealth of bright raspberries and red cherries. The palate is subtly earthy and gently spicy with a very plush and assertive core of blueberries and red cherries. Smooth, supple and very energetic. Drink over the next six to eight years."
Wine SpectatorExpressive strawberry blossom and raspberry aromas open to elegantly structured cherry and spicy cinnamon flavors that build richness toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2025. 9,835 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastBlack cherries and a broad streak of cola set up a big-shouldered wine that brings plenty of pleasure. All native yeast was used in the 47% whole-cluster fermentation. The wine spent just under a year in 20% new French oak, adding a frame of charred toast around the finish.
