Chehalem Wines Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir 2020, Willamette Valley, Oregon



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.
