Mt. Jefferson Cuvée Pinot Noir Accolades

2014 Vintage

94 Points – 2014 Mt. Jefferson Cuvée Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley
"Aromas of walnuts, berries and spices with hints of orange peel. Full-bodied with soft texture and chewy tannins. A juicy and delicious wine already. Needs a year or two to soften. Better in 2018."

91 Points – 2014 Mt. Jefferson Cuvée Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley
"Bright red. Forward, spice-accented aromas of fresh red berries, cola and lavender are joined by mineral and allspice nuances that emerge with aeration. Sweet and incisive in the mouth, offering juicy raspberry and floral pastille flavors and a touch of smokiness. Finishes silky and very long, with repeating red fruit character; gentle tannins come in slowly to contribute grip. This wine shows quite a light touch for the vintage."                                - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media
90 Points - 2014 Mt. Jefferson Cuvée Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley
"Has a lively, wild strawberry and candied orange peel scented bouquet, a touch of freshly sliced tangerine in the background. This is a vivacious bouquet wih more intensity than the 2013. The palate is nicely integrated with a subtle saline note towards the earthy finish."
- Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate

2013 Vintage

91 Points - 2013 Mt. Jefferson Cuvée Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley
"Pretty is the word that comes to mind upon sniffing and sipping this wine, with is beguiling strawberry and cherry fruit. It gathers strenth in its core, while maintaining an elegant, well-structured acid/tannin frame. It's an outstanding value in Oregon Pinot Noir from a top producer."
- Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast

 

2014 Mt. Jefferson Cuvée Pinot Noir

In the glass, the 2014 Mt. Jefferson Cuvée is showing like a classic Willamette Valley vintage with bright, red-fruit aromatics, elegant, balanced tannins and persistent acidity. We found impressions of pomegranate, Rainier strawberries, raspberries, Dark Hudson cherries, cocoa powder and sweet pipe tobacco along with earthy and dusty notes that are complex and intriguing.  It is a mid-weight wine that is defined by its balance of smooth, seamless tannins and luscious acidity with good persistence.
