2011 Chehalem Reserve Pinot Noir

2011 Chehalem Reserve Pinot Noir

2011 is the epitome of an "ageable vintage" as far as we are concerned, and our Reserve tier is the most age-worthy of all the Chehalem wines. This Pinot Noir Reserve is exhibiting plenty of youthful charm, with a progression toward more thoughtful complexity with time in the glass.

First notes are exalted bright fruit aromatics of red-to-black raspberry, cassis, dark cherry, and some ethereal violets, thyme, and black tea. More evolution brings smoky grilled lamb shank and peppercorn, with dark chocolate and barrel aromatics highlighting the nose. The palate is elegant yet assertive, with a firm structure or fine tannin, astounding balance, and a full, rich finish. Only time will show how much more this wine will evolve.
