Located about an hour southwest of Portland, the Chehalem Mountains are home to the highest point in the Willamette Valley. Like the Dundee Hills, the Chehalem Mountains are a bit of a geographic miracle, with uplifted sea beds poking out of the valley floor like islands. Lot 627 comes from one of the iconic producers in the Ribbon Ridge area of Chehalem Mountains, where fellow producers Bergstrom, Archery Summit, and Adelsheim cluster along the rolling hilltops.
An outstanding vintage for Willamette winemakers, 2016 featured perfect growing conditions that set the stage for bright, expressive wines with terrific aromatic lift and ripe-yet-elegant tannins. Lot 627 features all estate fruit from south-facing hillside vineyards renowned for producing wines of excellent complexity and structure. With a few consecutive years of bountiful harvests, the winery had a bit of extra wine on their hands, and I was happy to pounce on the deal.
Very, very good.
Very, very good. We liked it.
Best Value Pinot
Lot 627 may be the best pinot noir ever offered by CHW. Keep finding these gems.
Smooth and delickous
For the price, this is the best pinot I've had in a while. Wish I would have bought more!
Cherries with earthy minerality and beautiful florals on the nose. More cherry and big tannins on the palate.
Far and away, the best of all the wines I ordered here. Hopefully, it'll become available again.
Really good pinot, smooth,
A robust and satisfying pink noir. Incredible price for this wine. No wonder it’s out of stock.
This was one of the best wines CH has offered - red or white. Luscious fruit, silky tannins and great body. Like other reviewers I wish you had more.
We served this at a recent party, and it was well received by our guests. Good price point for this quality Pinot.
