Chehalem Reserve Pinot Noir Ribbon Ridge 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Wine Spectator: Polished, open-textured and inviting for its cinnamon-accented red berry and wet earth flavors, mingling effectively on the refined finish. A bit disjointed, but cellaring should bring it all together nicely. Best from 2013 through 2020. 671 cases made. (2/28/11)

CHEHALEM Winery is known for Pinot Noir, but also equivalently for white wines. And we’re proud of that, speaking eloquently to the first half of a meal as well as the last half. Over half of production is white, ranging from Riesling, our passion in several styles, to ground-swelling new Oregon Chardonnay, Pinot Gris which we do exceptionally well, and to exciting smaller productions of Grüner Veltliner and Pinot Blanc— everything grown sustainably on our three estate vineyards: Ridgecrest, Stoller and Corral Creek.  The climate and our winemaking style reveal wines that emphasize balance, elegance and texture rather than power and size. This openness allows the vintage and three terroirs on which we sustainably farm in the Ribbon Ridge, Dundee Hills and Chehalem Mountains to express themselves, not with words but with wines of startling distinction. Mature vineyards, mature winemaking, consistently great wines. Read less
