Mt. Jefferson Cuvée is a blend of the Cristom estate Pinot Noir vineyards along with fruit we source from neighboring vineyards in the Willamette Valley. The vineyard sites we have thoughtfully selected over the years are planted on a variety of soil types, elevations and aspects and represent the Willamette Valley Appellation as a broader whole. The vineyards are farmed by committed winegrowers we are proud to partner with, some for more than two decades, each and every one making a contribution to the 'Mt. Jeff". Each vineyard site adds to the character, fruit and structure of the wine, giving Mt. Jeff its deserved reputation as one of the most stylistically consistent Pinot Noirs in the world. After tasting multiple times through every lot of the vintage, it is the 'Mt. Jeff' blend that their original winemaker crafts first. Whole-cluster fermentations by native yeast followed by extended aging in French oak are the hallmarks of the Cristom winemaking style. This wine ages in barrel for twelve months and can stylistically be the most fresh and approachable of the Cristom Pinot Noirs in its youth. You can call it your 'school-night' Pinot.

Cristom's multivineyard blend is a polished effort that overdelivers for the price. Spicy and pungently herbal aromas lead into flavors of tart strawberry and peppery herb. The leaf and bark aspect is forceful but nicely integrated, and the structure suggests aging this a few years for optimal drinking.
