Cristom Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Mt. Jefferson Cuvée

2019 Cristom Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Mt. Jefferson Cuvée...$39.99
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.
Rated 97/100 James Suckling
The caliber of the 2019 Mt. Jefferson....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.
Rated 95/100 The Wine Advocate
