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.
I'm typically not a big fan of Pinots. However this is excellent. Not thin like some, but with a medium body. Nice complexity. A real value!
What am I doing here!
I used to say I rarely went with Oregon wines, now I'm drinking them left and right. Bottles like this one made me a believer!
First- very good wine, wonderful flavors. Wonderful with food now but probably needs some time before it is a sipping wine, still a little hot, but that alcohol will blend with time. Many people don't age their pinot's but I find that they really open up with some time in the bottle. This wine is good now and will be great with some time in the bottle. Wonderful with food now but probably needs some time before it is a sipping wine, still a little hot, but that alcohol will blend with time.
Excellent floral, earthy Pinot
This wine has a lot happening, good character. Get dark fruit with what taste like a lot of floral and an Old World kind of earthy back drop. A very nice wine at the price. Not a huge Pinot fan, but this one has a lot of meat to it, very good
Perhaps my favorite Pinot Noir in recent memory. Looking forward to tasting this one once aged a few years. Can’t go wrong with Oregon Pinots
Great, Earthy Pinot
This is not the California style light strawberry and raspberry Pinot Noir. This has more of a forest floor, earthy texture to it. If that's what you like, then this is extremely good, full of character.
Really nice pinot for the price point. Hard to find good ones in this price range.
Not familiar with this region. Nice Pinot Noir. Came back to get more, but now out of stock.
This Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is terrific. Wish I could get more.
