4 wines from our pals at Chehalem, in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Let’s dig in.

2020 Chehalem Rose of Pinot Noir Chehalem Mountains – Classically fruity, nearly impossibly so at occasions, this wine is all strawberries and flowers, with some candy pineapple within the combine for good measure. It’s a easy wine and one which could be a bit heavy with its aggressive sweetness, however it’s such an expressive and exuberant expertise that it’s troublesome to not fall for it. B+ / $25

2020 Chehalem Inox Unoaked Chardonnay Willamette Valley – Recent, with instantly distinguished notes of creamy lemon curd, pineapple, and a few tangerine. The physique is sort of chewy in its density, which works effectively with the brilliant, juicy end — layered with notes of lime leaf and coconut. An ideal summer season sipper. A- / $20

2019 Chehalem Pinot Gris Chehalem Mountains – That is textbook Oregon pinot gris, boldly fruity, reasonably floral, and amply acidic, with sustained notes of lemon peel and lime leaf on the end. There’s a creamy, daring sufficient physique to maintain every little thing cohesive, although the wine by no means challenges the senses. Lingering vanilla hangs on for the end. One other stable summer season choice. A- / $20

2019 Chehalem Pinot Noir Corral Creek Winery – With extra sweetness right here than anticipated, this wine showcases cherry notes — although extra maraschino than black — with notes of strawberry jam, tea leaf, and a touch of cinnamon all within the combine. The end is on the jammy aspect, overly extracted however with sufficient natural nuance and fascinating cola notes to maintain issues vigorous. Finest with meals by far. B+ / $30
