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.

95pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.

91pts Wilfred Wong

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)

91pts Wine Enthusiast
This is the non-estate, value-priced Pinot from Cristom, and it is always a fine value. The winery style is much in evidence, with minimal intervention, native yeast and a percentage of whole clusters in the ferment. It’s a tight, herbal, steely wine with compact cranberry and wild raspberry fruit at the core. Youthful and fresh, it has a peppery character and green tea highlights in the finishing tannins. Drink now and over the rest of this decade.

91pts Wine Spectator
Offers a dynamic core of lively tannin and acidity framed by raspberry and pomegranate flavors that take on black tea and dark spice accents. Drink now through 2038.

 

Winemaker Notes

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.
