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

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.
