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.
Vibrant red currant, boysenberry and cherry aromas are complicated by suggestions of vanilla, candied flowers and baking spices. Juicy and expansive on the palate, offering sappy red and dark berry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors that deepen and turn sweeter through the midpalate. Delivers solid closing thrust and finishes on a repeating cherry note, with gentle, nicely integrated tannins that add subtle grip. (JR)
The 2018 Mt. Jefferson Cuvée Pinot Noir is the first iteration labeled with the Eola-Amity Hills appellation. Proprietor Tom Gerrie is still developing new vineyards at Cristom, and he hopes to source at least 80% of the fruit for this bottling from the estate in the future. This vintage contains about 60% estate fruit; it was made with 46% whole cluster and aged 11 months in 21% new French oak. It has a medium ruby color and savory aromas of cured meats and tar, layered with blackberries, rhubarb and licorice hints. The palate is light-bodied, firm and fresh with earth-laced fruits and a perfumed finish. Cristom's largest cuvée, the Mt. Jefferson overdelivers at this price point. (EB)
An outstanding vintage for this entry-level Pinot, it opens with scents of cranberry and raspberry, leading into pure fruit flavors etched by pineapple acidity. It morphs into a lemon rind flavor and lemon verbena highlight on the palate, while the ripe berry fruit holds through the trailing finish. (PG)
