Smells of berry, cinnamon, Coffee.

Light to medium, with twigs and branches, christmas pepper berries, tip of the tongue acidity. The balance will certainly be better in a few years, I am totally drinking this way too young. Long day of flying, I do not recommend the hot read chile sauce I picked up this am with this wine. That’s for breakfast.

2011 super tight, four days open or decant for best results. Once open, okay, not best effort from this good producer.

The bright freshness and fruit-forward personality of the Mt Jefferson cuvée is spot-on year after year, making it a quintessential Willamette blend. Sweet red berries, roses, baking spice and just enough savory component to bring your nose down into the dirt. Just a tad saline and rustic. The open and approachable young-drinking nature of this wine gives it a very broad appeal.

Lean but complex. Cran/raspberry, violet, forest floor and a good kind of vegetal complexity. Firm medium tannin and long finish. Delicious, classic style. Would love to revisit a few years down the road.

Earth, violet, mint, mushroom, black cherry and dried herbs. M acid, body and tannin. Nose carries to the palate. Great value wine.

What a beautiful Friday to have a beautiful Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley, the 2012 Cristom Mt. Jefferson Cuvee.

I picked this beauty up this afternoon to have this evening to celebrate such a beautiful day.

On the nose one can imagine fresh cranberries, raspberry, cherry, clove, mushroom and dried roses.

The palate is consistent about the cranberry on the nose, tart cherry, red current, hibiscus notes and hints of forest floor.

There is medium acidity, nice gripping medium tannins with a good long finish. A very enjoyable Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley.
