Winemaker's Notes:

Produced since 1994, Mt. Jefferson Cuvée is regularly rated one of the most popular Pinot Noirs on restaurant wine lists across the country. Made with a blend of grapes from each of the estate vineyards and top quality fruit traded or purchased from neighboring vineyards, the Mt. Jefferson Cuvée conveys a rich diversity of place, deserving of its reputation as one of the most expansive yet stylistically consistent Pinot Noirs in the world.
My Notes:

About Cristom Vineyards:

Utilizing Old World winemaking techniques - whole clusters, native yeast fermentation, and gentle and minimal handling - Cristom handcrafts wines that are smooth, elegant and subtle.

These characteristics have earned Cristom distinction among wine enthusiasts and industry leaders alike, including being named 'Best New World Red' by Decanter magazine.

Our 65-acre estate in the Eola Hills of Oregon's Willamette Valley offers a long growing season, mild climate, warm winds and ancient volcanic soils that make it ideally suited to grow Pinot Noir and other traditional French varietals.
