A beautiful lucid ruby-red color opens with ripe, black cherry and tart cranberry notes laced with black tea leaves, dried flowers, and sumptuous earth notes. This medium-bodied Pinot envelops the palate with satiny red-berry fruit wrapped in velvety tannins, while rich baking spices, cedarwood, and black truffle cream add intrigue. Expressive acidity keeps everything fresh and balanced.

A couple of years ago, Cameron Hughes fan “Michael” left this comment about a Pinot Noir that is very similar to today’s Lot 945 2021 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir: “This was my first pinot from Chehalem Mountains…Loved it! I will be looking for more from this appellation.” Well, Michael, today is your — and every Pinot lover's — lucky day.
The source winery basks in the shadow of the Chehalem Mountains of Oregon’s famed Willamette Valley — the epicenter of world-class Pinot Noir. Their family-owned 45-acre estate vineyard is farmed to the strictest of biodynamic standards, and the vines are teeming with life and vibrancy. It’s no wonder top critics regularly give their wines 90-94 points scores!
The Lot 945 2021 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir comes from Decanter magazine’s “cellar-worthy vintage,” which produced “brilliant” wines. Lot 945 is its own brilliant compilation of eight different Pinot Noir grape clones (for complexity) aged in expensive Taransaud, Ermitage, and Francois Freres oak barrels for impressive structure. It is a mind-boggling Pinot Noir that is so complex even the wine thinks it’s really a Grand Cru from Burgundy.
