Winemaker Notes

From the first pour, this Three Vineyard blend seems to continuously evolve keeping you intrigued start to finish. Bold yet bright with introductions of lush pie cherries and black tea evolving into blackberries and spice. The palate structure has a full presence that shows weight yet is delicate with silky tannins and crisp acid. A Pinot Noir that is drinkable now or can be laid down for years.

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Pinot Noir Three Vineyard is pale to medium ruby-purple in color with wild blackberries and black cherries over wonderful nuances of undergrowth, wet leaves, floral perfume and just the slightest touch of pleasant stemmy character. Medium-bodied, it has warm black and red fruit preserves flavors in the mouth, framed by grainy tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long with plenty of perfumed earth notes.

JS 91
James Suckling
This has a fresh, attractive edge of violets and ripe blue fruit, as well as a leafy and herbal layer on the nose. The palate has a succulent and juicy array of fine and even-paced tannins that carry a detailed and fresh impression into the finish. Drink now. Screw cap.
WS 90
Wine Spectator

Sleek and vibrant, with lively rose petal, cherry and dark tea accents that linger toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2023.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

A blend of estate-grown grapes, this new vintage is nicely layered with complex flavors of black cherry, cold-brewed coffee, licorice and barrel toast. There's a hint of clean earth under a smooth, lingering finish.

Editors' Choice

TP 90
Tasting Panel

This wine has a bright, tart nose with spiced notes of cinnamon and cardamom. White pepper and woody tones on the palate.

Chehalem, Oregon
Chehalem Winery Video

Chehalem is considered a vineyard winery, aiming to reflect what the vineyard has produced, purely, with minimal processing and without compromising great fruit. Their name, Chehalem, translates to Valley of Flowers in the Native American language, Calapooia. It’s their goal to follow the example set centuries ago: to treat the land with great care and to continue the mission of creating a sustainable future.

Their story starts in 1990 with the inaugural Pinot Noir harvest at Ridgecrest Vineyard. As those wines were releasing in 1993, Bill Stoller joined as co-owner. He subsequently purchased his family farmlands at the southern tip of the Dundee with the vision of planting it as our second estate vineyard.

In 1995, they purchased Corral Creek, the vineyard surrounding the winery. It became the third estate vineyard.

In early 2018, Bill became the sole owner of Chehalem, and by July, they had become the sixth Oregon winery to achieve B Corp status. This rigorous certification assesses companies to ensure they meet the highest standard of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability.

Home of some of the planet’s most amazingly elegant and expressive Pinot noir, the Willamette Valley is a pastoral, mixed landscape of green, bucolic rolling hills, dramatic forestlands and small, independent, friendly wine growers. As a leader in environmental stewardship, the valley has some of the nation’s most protective land use policies, with two-thirds of its vineyards farmed sustainably and over half, organically. While the valley claims a cool, continental climate, and is heavily influenced by the cold, moist winds of the Pacific Ocean, its warm and dry summers allow for the steady, even ripening of Pinot noir.

The potential of Willamette Valley Pinot noir continues to attract the investment of serious growers and winemakers both locally and from abroad, as naturally the finished wines bring accolades from professionals and enthusiasts. With a range of styles from delicate dried cherry, raspberry and hibiscus to stronger notes of truffle, mocha, plum and spice, a fine Willamette Valley Pinot noir is a perfect expression of both character and grace.
