$31.95 Regular

in any 12 bottle order or Build a Case




The Mt. Jefferson Cuvee is a blend of grapes from each of the estate vineyards. It has sweet aromas of cinnamon and spice with flavors of ripe red fruit.

Cristom's entry-level Pinot is an excellent example of the winery's style - good fruit, balanced by acid and tannin, in an elegant and structured frame.

2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

2009 Wine Advocate - 90 points - On the palate it displays medium body, sweet fruit, plenty of spice and enough ripe tannin to evolve for 1-2 years. However, it can be approached now and over the next 6-8 years. - Jay Somers

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

From the winery: "this wine comes from a blend of ten different vineyard sites all within the Willamette Valley. Thirty five percent of the fruit comes from our own vineyard. The final blend includes the original Oregon clones of Pommard and Wadensville, along with some of the newer Dijon clones 113,114,115 and 777."

This medium ruby colored Pinot Noir has a nose dominated at the moment with a plethora of exotic spices and herbs. Cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, coriander, green tea, tobacco and gun smoke can all be found mingling with the fruit. The flavors are just as exotic with black cherries and currants overlain with savory dried herbs. Although this is a medium weight wine, it is multi-faceted and has adequate acidity and just enough grip to benefit from moderate aging. Steve Doerner, Winemaker
