Impressions of pomegranate and mixed berries and the youthful aromas to be complex and intriguing. It is a mid-weight wine, spicy on the palate, and has a luscious, velvety texture that is very promising.

James Suckling The nose is fresh and shows great depth with raspberry crumble, dried wild strawberries, orange peel and milk chocolate shavings. Medium- to full-bodied with lots of spicy, crunchy red fruit, tangy acidity, firm tannins and a long finish. So good now but better in 2019.

Wine EnthusiastEditors' Choice. This is Cristom's entry-level Pinot, and it over-delivers in every regard. The texture, depth and detail of higher-priced vineyard designates are all here, matching brambly berry fruit and streaks of char and coffee grounds. Drink now through the early 2020s.

Wine AdvocatePale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Mt Jefferson Cuvee Pinot Noir has vibrant red cherry and black raspberry notes with suggestions of baking spices, fertile soil and violets. Medium-bodied with a good core of rich, ripe red berry flavors and a solid backbone of grainy tannins, it finishes with a refreshing lift.
