Wine Advocate 87 points - The Chehalem 2011 Pinot Noir 3 Vineyard displays tart-edged plum and dark cherry, its frisky juiciness helping to assuage the effects of rather grainy tannins, but with what I call “the memory of malic” revealed in a slightly grating and tooth-numbing if invigorating finish. (A 2011 Gamay from Ridgecrest was even more that way.) Cherry pit and walnut piquancy have a more positive influence in this wine’s undeniably sustained and juicy finish. I can’t help wondering with a red like this whether the winery’s reliance on screw caps (which they strongly advocate) could accentuate the hard and bitter elements at least at this youthful stage. I would want to revisit this in another year before attempting a prognostication concerning its aging potential.  (Oct 2013)

Wine Enthusiast 89 points - Pungent and assertively herbal, this blend of Chehalem’s three estate vineyards has aromatics to spare, along with an earthy mix of root, stem and brambly fruit. There’s a streak of cola also, and it delivers plenty of power for a cool vintage wine that clocks in at 12.7% alcohol. (Dec 2013)
