2019 Chemistry Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
Chemistry is the first collaborative project between Stoller Family Estate and Chehalem Winery in Willamette Valley, Oregon. It was established in 2018 by founder and owner Bill Stoller, who has ownership of both wineries. As described by the winery “Chemistry wines are made for life’s everyday moments.”
This is a not too serious, everyday Pinot Noir that is easy to embrace. The deep ruby color opens to an extroverted and fruit-driven Pinot Noir that has an ample amount of finesse and personality. Initially, you experience aromas of earth and forest floor but behind this is generous amount of ripe orchard cherries and crushed red plums. The tannins are finely grained and well integrated into this Pinot Noir, making it approachable on opening.
