cristom mt. jefferson cuvee pinot noir 2022 750ml
Mt. Jefferson Cuvée is a representation of the Cristom approach to winemaking from some of the finest vineyards in the Eola-Amity hills with a focus on fruit from the estate. With a focus on whole-clusters and native yeast, ‘Mt. Jeff’ is the foundation of our winery and flagship wine of our brand.
The first Pinot Noir of the vintage to be crafted, after multiple tastings of every individual barrel, "Mt. Jeff" defines the best of the Eola-Amity Hills. The 2022 Mt. Jeff is comprised of 73% Cristom Estate fruit from our five world-class vineyards – Paul Gerrie, Eileen, Jessie, Louise, and Marjorie Vineyards – one of the highest percentages of estate fruit in Cristom’s 28 vintages of crafting this iconic wine!
This wine is a Cristom classic, 100% Pinot Noir, and exclusively from the Eola-Amity Hills. It embodies Cristom's hallmark style – marrying whole-cluster and native yeast fermentations and is unfined and unfiltered.
Vibrant fresh red fruit characters and 52% whole cluster fermentation parlay layered spice and fine tannin, the 2022 “Mt. Jeff” offers tremendous complexity of flavor and is showing exceptionally well in its youth.
Drinking well now and can age until 2031 or longer.
