2008 Cristom Vineyards - Pinot Noir Mt. Jefferson Cuvee (1.5L)



Wine Advocate   The entry-level 2008 Pinot Noir Mt. Jefferson Cuvee includes some purchased fruit. Dark ruby red, it offers up aromas of rose petal, spice box, incense, cherry, and raspberry. On the palate it displays medium body, sweet fruit, plenty of spice, and enough ripe tannin to evolve for 1-2 years. However, it can be approached now and over the next 6-8 years. Iíve said it before and Iíll say it again, continuity and consistency are the keys to Cristomís success. The winemaking team led by Steve Doerner rose to the occasion, taking full advantage of the great raw materials provided by the 2008 vintage. Jay Miller
International Wine Cellar   Bright medium red. Smoky redcurrant and cherry aromas are complicated by dried rose and spicecake. Deeper dark berry flavors are firmed by silky tannins and become sweeter with air. Shows very good power on the focused dark berry-flavored finish. This is the best version of this bottling I can recall. Winemaker Steve Doerner told me that he used 50% whole clusters across the board in 2008. Josh Raynolds
