Mt. Jefferson Cuvée
Cristom was one of the early pioneers of pinot noir in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, where they continue to be one of its top producers. Paul Gerrie and his wife Eileen founded the winery in 1992, and the story continues with their children now taking the reins.
Cristom makes four estate pinot noirs named after family matriarchs: Eileen, Jessie, Louise, and Marjorie. The vineyards are sustainably farmed but each wine has its own character reflective of the individual vineyard’s soil composition, elevation, and exposure.
The pinot noirs of Cristom are age-worthy, complexly aromatic pinot noirs that show balance, intensity, and elegance, representative of the potential for Oregon pinot noir.
