The 2022 Cristom, "Mt. Jefferson Cuvee" Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley was a Merchant's Pick

97 pt Premier Pinot Noir!

May 19, 2023

Few Oregon Pinots deliver like Cristom's Mt. Jefferson Cuvee, easily our most requested Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley.

It is a multi-year Wine Spectator Top 100 wine.  And, it has been ranked the #1 Pinot Noir in "America's Best Restaurants" by Wine Enthusiast for the following five years:  2013, 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2018.  It has also been an "Editor's Choice" by Wine Enthusiast on several releases. 

The accolades are justified; Cristom is a fantastic drinking Pinot Noir.

"I’m incredibly impressed with the 2021s coming from the Cristom Estate, and this one is a perfect example of the phenomenal wines from the vintage.  The Mt. Jefferson Estate Pinot Noir was just recently released, but it feels ready to drink now with impeccable balance, structure, and length. Notes of wild huckleberry, toasted anise, perfumed flowers, spiced red plum, and a hint of tangerine zest combine beautifully on the tongue." International Wine Review

What We Love About Cristom's Mt. Jefferson Cuvee Pinot Noir

The wine is always a crowd favorite for its classic baking spice, bitter cherry, smoky red fruit, cedar, and mushroom, all of which ripple through a rustic texture.  

These are hallmark characteristics of each Mt. Jefferson Cuvee release.  It is a compelling wine!

While supplies last.

Enjoy!

"Ready to drink with impeccable balance." International Wine Review

“Wildly exotic.”

Vinous

"Wildly exotic, the 2022 Pinot Noir Mt. Jefferson Cuvée captivates with its seductive blend of dried flowers, incense, rosemary and dried strawberries. This is wonderfully fresh, nearly crunchy in feel, with stimulating acidity offsetting its tart red fruits and hints of sour citrus that pucker the cheeks. The 2022 finishes with youthful tension, lightly structured yet cooling and fresh, leaving suggestions of tart raspberry. About 52% whole cluster fermentation."
