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.
This Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is terrific. Wish I could get more.
It has a distinct rich character. A truly high end pinot for a great price.
This is one of the best pinots I have purchased. Tasting it next to Jack Creek, Kanzler, Kosta Brown and Black Kite (all in my cellar) it holds its own. It has a distinct rich character. Excellent!
Great Willamette Pinot Noir
Recently discovered Willamette Pinot Noirs after a trip there. This was fantastic, will definitely be looking for something similar in the future.
