"Pretty is the word that comes to mind upon sniffing and sipping this wine, with its beguiling strawberry and cherry fruit. It gathers strength in its core, while maintaining an elegant, well-structured acid/tannin frame. It's an outstanding value in Oregon Pinot from a top producer."

"The 2013 Mt Jefferson Cuvee Pinot Noir, which sees around 15-20% new wood, has a bright redcurrant and wild strawberry scented bouquet, touches of mint and fennel in the background. There is a lot going on here. The palate is sharp on the entry with brisk tannin, a little darker in fruit than the 2012 last year, but with satisfying structure on what you might call a "solid" finish. This is a well-priced Pinot Noir that will probably repay a couple of years in bottle, though you can see the restaurant trade lapping this up (as usual)."
