Chehalem 3 Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009
Warm and fresh with a scent of ripe strawberries, this wine's flavors are loose-limbed and juicy, but a fruit skin tannin element holds all the ripeness in check. It's an ideal red for chilling and drinking as an aperitif.
Light and silky, dancing delicately over refined tannins and lively acidity to show red berry, cinnamon and clove flavors as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2017.
Bright red. High-pitched red berry and floral aromas are complicated by Asian spices and orange peel. Silky in texture and gently sweet, with vibrant strawberry and black raspberry flavors and a touch of bitter cherry. The supple, intensely fruit finish is spicy, focused and nicely persistent. This drinks well now but has the spine to age.
