The flagship Pinot Noir of Cristom Vineyards- Mt. Jefferson Cuvée is a blend of the Cristom estate Pinot Noir along with exceptional fruit we source from neighboring vineyards in the Willamette Valley. Each of these vineyards are farmed by committed winegrowers we are proud to partner with, each site adding to the character, fruit, and structure of the wine, giving "Mt. Jeff" its deserved reputation as one of the most stylistically consistent Pinot Noirs in the world.
After multiple tastings of every lot of the vintage, it is the "Mt. Jeff" blend that our winemaker crafts first. Whole-cluster fermentations by native yeast and extended aging in French oak are the hallmarks of the Cristom winemaking style. This wine ages in the barrel for twelve months, and can stylistically be the most fresh and approachable of the Cristom Pinot Noirs in its youth.
