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.
Loved the wine. Great taste affordable price.
Wow, this is one of the best Pinot Noirs I have ever tasted! Many pinots at this price point tend to be on the thin side, but this one is quite full bodied and fruity. It definitely stands out among pinots as one of the best under $20!
This is another one of my favorites. Really good flavors. Will be buying more in the future!
Steal this Wine
This is my favorite CH Pinot from Oregon. Closer to a California style, it is full bodied and at a price point that is a steal.

A Fine Pinot
Enjoyable wine that started out a bit tart, but mellowed and took on an aromatic quality with decanting.
Full-bodied pinot with great balance. An excellent choice -- with or without food.
Quality drinkable and worthy of a few years aging
Not a tepid or paltry Pinot.
Good nose and full fruit up front with lingering tannins and light oak finish. Decant. Even great the next day.
Great holiday gift!
We selected this wine as a holiday gift for our company of around 80 people, and it's so far been universally well-liked across the board. Has a lovely full-bodied palette that's enjoyable on its own as well as paired with food and sweets. This wine was specifically paired with Thanksgiving for all of us - and our holiday was complete with it!
We recently compared this wine with a more expensive French Pinot. Everyone in our party preferred this Pinot. Medium bodied and complex. Decanting is recommended.
Very tasty Pinot
Well made Pinot that tastes great for this price? Ship it in and enjoy. Had it with Thanksgiving turkey and everyone raved about it, then drank it quickly.
