97pts James Suckling
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.

The 2019 Cristom "Mt. Jeff" Pinot Noir is true-to-type and lively on the palate. This wine exhibits bright aromas and flavors of black fruit, licorice, and savory spices. Pair it with a lightly-seasoned, oven-baked Porchetta. (Tasted: April 26, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
Aromatically the wine is red and blackberry driven, perfumed with fine vanilla cake, damp forest floor, and violets. On the palate, the wine is juicy and full, with perfectly ripened berry fruits, well-integrated tannins, and mulling spices.
