ryansnyder reviewed Cristom Vineyards Mt. Jefferson Cuvée Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2004 on May 27, 2007
When tasted next to the '05 Mt. Jefferson, the first impression this Pinot leaves that there is a remarkable difference that 1 year of aging in the bottle will bring to this wine. Fully integrated, with all of the intangibles that make a hallmark Pinot: ripe black cherry up front, hints of volcanic soil, a fresh acidity and a silky smooth body, and a finish of stewed strawberries. Best around 2010.
