Cristom, Mt Jefferson Pinot Noir Eola-Amity Hills, Oregon 2018
Pinot Noir 100%
Elegant yet slightly spicy aromas interwine, combining blackberries, rhubarb and licorice hints. The palate is light-bodied, firm and fresh with earth-laced fruits and a floral, perfumed finish. This is the first vintage of Cristoms to be part of the new Eola Amity Hills AVA in the Willamette Valley.
This vintage contains about 60% estate fruit; it was made with 46% whole cluster and aged 11 months in 20% new French oak.
The new Eola-Amity Hills appellation. Proprietor Tom Gerrie is still developing new vineyards at Cristom, and he hopes to source at least 80% of the fruit for this bottling from the estate in the future.
