Wine Review: I really like elegant Pinot Noir and this bright red colored offering from Chehalem is very good. It opens with a fragrant black raspberry and old oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, elegant and has a soft mouthfeel. The flavor profile is a tasty red plum and black raspberry blend with notes of oak. I also detected hints of strawberry. The finish is dry and it fades away nicely. This Pinot Noir is very food friendly and it would pair well with poached salmon with a creamy dill-mustard sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Richer than our standard showing of Corral Creek Pinot Noir, this wine is warming, spice-driven, and showcases beautiful oak to compliment bright red fruit. Tobacco leaf, cinnamon, cola, Italian plum and pomegranate are in the foreground, with fruitcake, dusty ripe berry and dark chocolate supporting. This wine will flourish with 6-12 months in bottle, and round out subtle black tea tannins.
