2019 Chehalem Club Exclusive Pinot Noir
Our 2019 Wine Club Exclusive is crafted to be an elevated expression of our Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir, comprised of four standout barrels from three of our estate vineyards, each located in a different AVA. Aromatics of red cherry are highlighted by an underlying tone of forest floor and mushrooms. The palate is rich and full of power with silky-smooth tannins and beautiful length on the finish.
The growing season from bud break through harvest all fell within days of the 2013 vintage. Cool, wet weather arrived in early September, but by late September and October, conditions returned to sunny days and brisk nights. The resulting wines are lower in alcohol, with delicate flavors and beautiful nuances. The 2019 vintage will be one we remember thanks to the tremendous character and charisma in the wines.
