2019 Cristom "Mt. Jefferson Cuvée" Eola-Amity Pinot Noir

SKU #1530474 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is very seductive on the nose with ripe strawberry, spice, flowers and hints of cloves. Full-bodied, but very reserved and tight with chewy, polished tannins and a long, long finish. Racy and structured. Try after 2024. Inner quote mark (8/2021)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The caliber of the 2019 Mt. Jefferson Cuvée Pinot Noir, Cristom's largest-production SKU, is impressive this vintage. Medium ruby-purple, it features savory cranberry sauce, orange peel and tar aromas with tones of dried flowers and spice. The medium-bodied palate offers the pleasing, gently grippy tannins and bright freshness characteristic of Cristom's generous whole-cluster inclusion, and it finishes with intense, layered fruits and floral accents. Daniel Estrin joined the team as winemaker and vineyard manager in 2019 after several years at Littorai in Sonoma County. "I was trepidatious about the amount of stems, after using only about 30% at Littorai," he says, "but I leaned into it, and it does a lot for Oregon Pinot, which can be very fruity."

The Mt. Jefferson bottling has long been a staff favorite at K&L and in the past few years has the quality has gone up and up even further. It now contains a higher percentage of estate grown fruit, plus a pretty dazzling array of partner vineyards from which Cristom sources additional fruit, including: Seven Springs, Arcus, Durant, Canary Hill, Eola-Springs and Ridgecrest—all parcels typically reserved for single vineyard designates of $50-$100 bottles. For me Mt. Jefferson is one of the finest panoramic looks at the Willamette Valley as a whole, as seen through the lens of a masterful winemaker; it encapsulates everything that makes this a truly special place to grow Pinot Noir.
