Product Description

Chehalem (Chuh-hay-lum) is a local Calapooia Indian word best translated as “gentle land” or “valley of flowers,” phrases that capture a long-standing, almost religious reverence for the land. 100% Estate-Grown Pinot Noir from Ridgecrest Vineyards, Corral Creek Vineyards, and Stoller Vineyards, all Willamette Valley AVA. 11-21 days total fermentation, with 1-8 days pre-maceration. Aged 11 months in barrel, racked once. 10% new and 12% 1-year old French oak barrels. There is beautiful ripe black cherry and brambly cassis on the nose, with fresh wet earth and a tea leaf component. White pepper, dusty cocoa, tobacco, sweet loam, and raspberry accentuate the nose, providing a fresh, full, complex package. The palate is lithe and playful, with especially round, pliable acid, and an overarching flavor of rich cranberry sauce and rose hips.
