Cristom Mt. Jefferson Cuvee Pinot Noir 2014

SKU 5492


In the glass, the 2014 Mt. Jefferson Cuvée is showing like a classic Willamette Valley vintage with bright, red-fruit aromatics, elegant, balanced tannins and persistent acidity. We found impressions of pomegranate, Rainier strawberries, raspberries, Dark Hudson cherries, cocoa powder and sweet pipe tobacco along with earthy and dusty notes that are complex and intriguing. It is a mid-weight wine that is defined by its balance of smooth, seamless tannins and luscious acidity with good persistence.

Wine AdvocatePale ruby-purple in color, the 2014 Mt Jefferson Cuvee Pinot Noir has a good core of warm raspberries and wild strawberries with suggestions of garrigue, forest floor and lavender. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers a great intensity of vibrant red berry flavors complemented by earth and herbal undertones and structured with ripe, fine-grained tannins, finishing with impressive length and expression. Great value!

Wine EnthusiastLight raspberry fruit carries a tart punchy edge. It's clean and fresh, though showing little density. Additional bottle age (another couple of years) would be a good idea.
