Chehalem 3 Vineyard Pinot Noir -Willamette Valley, Oregon

$27.99

winemaker's notes:

A rich, dark, focused, and balanced Pinot Noir, this is a very nice introduction for 2008. Perfectly colored red-purple-black, this well-extracted wine carries gobs of fruit, good structure, and a nice, long finish. Exotic aromas and flavors of clove, cardamom, pepper spice, mineral, orange marmalade, green tea, and plum as well as herbal and brown forest-floor characters make this wine complex and always evolving. It is still tightly wound at release, with great acid and a moderate weight that will plump even more with age. We wish we were able to make more of this wine.

critical acclaim:

"Polished, focused and enticing for its floral, white pepper–accented currant and blackberry flavors, playing against a mild grip of fine tannins as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2016."

Wine Spectator

"Bright ruby. Black raspberry and flowers on the nose, with a strong undertone of musky spices that gains strength in the glass. Pliant, palate-coating dark berry flavors are appealingly open-knit. Nicely ripe but quite light on its feet, finishing very good clarity, spiciness and lingering sweetness."
