"Comprising a blend of estate and contract fruit; typically vinified with a smaller share of whole clusters and stems than their other Pinots; and bottled after around 13 months, Cristom's 2009 Pinot Noir Mount Jefferson Cuvee is brightly saturated with fresh red berries and is mouthwateringly savory in its salinity and animal fat undertones. Piquant hints of fruit pit add to the invigoration of a sappily-persistent finish. This ought to make for delightful and versatile company at table over the next half dozen or so years."
Wine Advocate

"Bright ruby-red. Spice-accented red berries on the nose, with subtle smoke and floral notes adding complexity. Juicy and precise, with good depth to its strawberry and raspberry flavors. Finished dry, stony and precise, with very good clarity and clinging florality."
