Wine Details

Dark garnet with a bright crimson hue, Lot 539 serves up rich and vibrant aromas with a pretty red fruit mélange of wild strawberry, cranberry and cherry beautifully integrated and underpinned by notes of fresh earth and wet stone that take on a spicy/peppery robe with air. “Quite lovely”, my British friends would say. To me, it’s the perfect blend of accessible complexity and ripe-yet-honest fruit. Succulent and juicy on the palate with a long, rich finish and classic Oregon freshness, it features a wave of ample tannins that will give it another 6-10 years of graceful aging.

Without any large scale offerings and a historical difficulty in ripening more than three tons to the acre, Oregon Pinot Noir has never been “cheap”. As such, it took me years to get my hands on a top shelf Willamette Valley Pinot at a great price with Lot 531 Pinot at $25, so how on earth is today's release available at about half the price?

Well, start by adding 36% more acreage in five years, with the last four of those five years being just about as picture perfect as harvests get in Oregon. Then, factor in that Lot 539 is a blend of 79% Willamette Valley and 21% Rogue Valley Pinot Noir (just 6% shy of the 85% qualifying mark for having the Willamette Valley designation), and you’ve got the makings for a killer Oregon Pinot at less than half the price. Showing all the pretty fruit and structure of Willamette Pinot, the final blend is complemented with warmer Rogue components that impart a rich and juicy element to the palate. Trust me, it’s a better wine this way. With the base wine here selling for $25 a bottle and a significant portion of the blend coming from a $50/bottle program, I believe this the most stunning value in Oregon Pinot today.

I enjoy Pinots from Oregon, but they are often overpriced. So glad we purchased several bottles before they were gone.

One hour after opening...Cherry and raspberry notes . Initial light tannin bite. Fruity. Simple flavor profile, lean, smooth finish.

Exceptional Value Pinot

Verified Purchase

For an incredibly young wine, this has exceptional promise. A bold bouquet of fruits, smooth finish, full flavor. Of the several Pinot Noir's we have tried (including two Dundee wines), this had the most promise. The bottle was finished before all others. Highly recommended, although it appears to be all out of stock.

From our first bottle, we all loved this pinot. As a family, we tend to drink a lot of pinots. We enjoyed this one for its full palate of red fruits, dark cherry with a hint of raspberry. The added earthiness that made it so much more than the fruit with a more mature lingering taste. Excellent value made me go back for more! Easy to drink and enjoy.

This is our second case of Lot 539 Oregon Pinot Noir. I usually find Pinot Noir's too thin and bland, but this one has excellent flavors and is medium bodied. Another plus is it is from Oregon. I have given up on California wines unless organic. I try to drink organic only, but my husband doesn't care and wants to try different wines. So I look for Oregon and Washington wines for him. This Pinot Noir was perfect for him.

We love it's rich aroma and fragrance. ... as well as the fine palate. We have already reordered to build up a supply before the lot is all sold out.

Meh. For me this was very light weight in every dimension. First time buying from CH and it was not a great outcome.....

I guess for the price I should not have expected more but from the virtual tasting and reviews I was. I would definitely not buy this again.
