Friday night enjoying a very nice Willamette Valley Pinot Noir with a good friend of many years. The 2011 Chehalem Three Vineyard Pinot Noir. On the nose there is beautifully delicious red fruit, ripe strawberry, red raspberry, ripe tomato, clove, cola, vanilla, rose petal and some dry earthy soil. On the palate is red raspberry, strawberry, cherry, cranberry, cola, vanilla and a forest floor component. The wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity, medium smooth tannin that leads to a long fruit filled finish. A very nice expression of a clean Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. Have a great weekend and please be safe. Nostrovia!

The color of this selection is a beautiful ruby red of which you can see straight through. The nose brings cherry, raspberry, plum, charcoal, matchstick and creamy milk chocolate. On the palate I get red fruit, red raspberry, tea leaf, cinnamon, spice, very nice light smooth tannins and a very good acidity bringing the fruit and oaky notes together in a balanced blend of three vineyards. Nice wine.

Does everything a Pinot should- love the 2011s- red fruit, acid and spice- tobacco and chocolate- a Pinot for grown ups.

2011 was definitely one of my favorites in a 10yr vertical from '04-'13.

Fresh with boatloads of bright acid & tremendous depth. Maligning the 2011 vintage in Oregon is a Fool's Errand.
