Critical Acclaim

WS 91
Wine Spectator

Polished, focused and enticing for its floral, white pepper–accented currant and blackberry flavors, playing against a mild grip of fine tannins as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2016.

Nicely ripe but quite light on its feet, finishing very good clarity, spiciness and lingering sweetness.

Chehalem
With two vineyards on either end of Chehalem Ridge and one in the Dundee Hills, Chehalem is dedicated to reflecting as purely as possible what the vineyard has produced. With minimal processing and without compromising great fruit, Chehalem wines promise good ageing but are very drinkable young. Production quantities of all Chehalem wines are limited, to assure ultimate winemaking control.
