2018 Cristom "Mt Jefferson" Pinot Noir, Eola-Amity Hills, Willamette Valley
Mt Jefferson is Cristom's flagship cuvée and perfect demonstrates the dense, dark fruits and longevity that Eola-Amity Hills are known for.
"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. 94 pts." -- James Suckling
