Cristom Mt Jefferson Pinot Noir Wv 2007
This very dark ruby colored Pinot Noir has great fruit expression along with a bit of a floral note on the nose. There is quite a bit of weight to the wine but it has a very smooth texture. A fair amount of acidity and just a touch of tannin and oak contribute to a very long satisfying finish.
A memorable wine, I shared just a half bottle among friends at Flying Fish in Seattle, so the experience was for optimal tasting. It had a harmony of spice and fruit, each multi-layered throughout from nose to finish, an autumnal quality, dry, crisp, smoky, hints of black licorice over cherries.
This is silky smooth. It starts with aromas of roses and fresh berries and then rewards the taster with perfectly balanced red and dark fruit flavors. The finish is long and very pleasant
External Reviews for Cristom Mt Jefferson Pinot Noir Wv
This Pinot Noir is a medium garnet color. On the nose it is showing cola berry, oolong tea and wild berry aromas. It has the 'signature' Mt. Jefferson liveliness on the palate with bright, juicy red cherry flavors that echo on the finish. There are more complex flavors of earth and spice evident on the palate but they need a little time to show through more completely. This Pinot Noir will develop nicely in the short to medium term
