Chehalem Mountains, Willamette Valley

Chehalem

Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir 2020

Light purple in color with a wide purplish rim.

Fruity nose of cherries, raspberries, strawberries, light tobacco, chocolates and black pepper.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and thin legs.

Dry on the palate with raspberries, cherries, light oak, spices, tobacco, chocolates, coffee and black pepper.

Tangy finish with fine tannins and sour cranberries.

This is a nice and elegant Pinot Noir from Oregon. Fresh and fruit forward. Light and engaging.

Nicely balanced with a soft mouthfeel. A good porch wine. Will be nice to revisit it in a couple of years.

Easy drinking and good by itself or with food. I gave it a light chill, and paired it with fresh berries, cheeses and crackers.

100% Pinot Noir grapes were aged in French oak barrels (15% new) for 8 months.

13% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$30.

David Paige Wines

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Over the weekend we opened the 2018 David Paige Wines Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. From Carlton, Oregon and a blend of grapes from Chehalem Mountains, Ribbon Ridge and Eola-Amity Hills.

On the nose there was strawberry, cranberry, cherry, clove, mushroom, hibiscus, vanilla and earth.

On the palate there is tart cherry, raspberry, cranberry, clove, mushroom, vanilla and earth.

This is a medium bodied wine with medium + acidity and medium fine tannins that moves easily into a long red fruit earthy finish. A very nice expression of Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley. Have a wonderful week ahead and my it be positive and productive. Please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Classic Willamette! Terroir driven, bursting with dark red fruits, herbaceous backbone, batting out of its league from a price point perspective! — a month ago
