Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Produced since 1994 and named for Mt. Jefferson in the Cascade Range that is east of Cristom Vineyards and visible from their tasting room. From a blend of estate vineyard grapes, the wine is Ruby with aromas of red berries, floral and spice. On the palate flavors of fresh strawberry with tea leaves and cola notes, clean and vibrant. Fine soft tannins, long finish, carrying fruit and ending with a soft spice character. Very nice, great value!!

Pears and apples. Slight bruised quality. Lots of acid with a slightly creamy finish. Medium to full bodied with a somewhat waxy texture.

Bitter citrus pith, herbs, chamomile, white peach, minerals. Outstanding acidity and focus. Always a fabulous value, and certainly this vintage will improve.

This outstanding Pinot Gris opens to aromas of kiwi, orange zest and wet earth. On the palate this possesses a wonderful texture which is underlined by streaks of minerality, as well as starfruit, kiwi and citrus zest flavors. Simply delicious, and an absolute steal with its friendly price tag. Drink 2019-2024- 92

Another satisfying vintage. Great weight, balance, acidity and delicate aromatics. One of my favorite Willamette whites over the years, and always a tremendous value.

This Eola - Amity PG has more in common with a waxy Chenin then it's watery Italian cousins. Fresh citrus, white pepper and a big beautiful body (14% ABV)
