Winemaker Notes

Spiced blackberry and raspberry with notes of violet and tobacco frame this expressive nose. The mouth is silky textured with sweet bing cherry and black cassis balanced by firm acidity and well-integrated tannins.

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
A gorgeous wine, lush and refined from the first sniff to the last swallow. Rose petals, cotton candy, chocolate-covered cherries- it's a date in a bottle. As the wine rolls across the palate it seems to gain depth and detail, while keeping the exceptionally pretty fruit flavors front and center. Silky and lightly spicy, with cinnamon, toast, mocha and tobacco highlights.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Pinot Noir Reserve is 100% Chehalem Mountain fruit. Aromas of white pepper, Asian spices, incense, black cherry, and black raspberry lead to a structured effort with loads of savory fruit crammed into its medium-bodied frame. With excellent volume and well-balanced by lively acidity, it should evolve for 3-4 years and deliver prime drinking from 2013 to 2023.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Displays impressive density to the spicy, slightly tart, raspberry and tobacco flavors, which linger easily on the lively, focused finish. Drink now through 2018.
BH 90
Burghound.com
A very reserved and notably ripe nose displays hints of menthol and mint on the otherwise somber dark berry, violet and plum suffused aromas. There is fine density and solid power to the attractively textured and extract-rich flavors that possess a velvety and quite serious mouth feel before terminating in a long and ever-so-slightly warm finish. This is also quite good but it can’t quite match the Abetina and Aurora in their overall balance and complexity.

Chehalem Mountains Wine

Willamette Valley, Oregon

The Chehalem Mountains is a northwest-southeast span of several distinct mountains, ridges and peaks in the northern part of the Willamette Valley. Of all of Willamette Valley's smaller AVAs, it is closest to the city of Portland. Its highest summit, Bald Peak at an elevation of 1,633 feet, serves to generate cooler air for the rest of the AVA and its hillside vineyards. The region covers 70,000 acres but only 1,600 acres are planted to vines; soils of the Chehalem Mountains are a mix of basalt, ocean sediment and loess.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
