Cristom Mt. Jefferson Cuvee Pinot Noir 2018 (750ml)

From as many as ten different non-estate vineyard sources -- principally in the estate’s Eola-Amity Hills neighborhood -- Cristom’s 2011 Pinot Noir Mount Jefferson Cuvee is brightly red-fruited and tinged with similarly vintage-typical smokiness; root flavors of iris, ginger and sassafras; and a musky, sharp note of radish. Polished in feel and penetrating in length, with a touch of salinity serving for saliva-inducement, and its piquant and incisive notes for invigoration, this energetic archetype of 2011 vintage virtue should perform admirably through at least 2017.
