This fragrant, lush Pinot noir is bursting with blackberry aromas, toasted walnuts, and sandalwood. The palate has depth and richness wrapped in a velvety mouth feel. This wine will reward patience, aging beautifully over the next five-to-seven years or more.
“The idea that we would plant a grape variety that no one knew well in a place that nobody had ever heard of was not only remarkably naïve, it was a remarkable leap of faith.” - David Adelsheim, Founder
Adelsheim (pronounced Addels-Heim) was founded in 1971 by David and Ginny Adelsheim with one pursuit: to create world-class wines in the undiscovered wine region that would later become Chehalem Mountains AVA, a venerable subregion of Oregon's famous Willamette Valley. One of the original, most influential, and most important producers of the region, Adelsheim has a long track record of producing some of the finest Burgundian-style Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays produced domestically. We're very proud to add some of their most exclusive wines to our portfolio.More from this winery

SO amazing! Very smooth and easy to drink.
Not much of a nose and followed up with bland flavor. Was shocked how this wine had nothing going on. Expected much more from Adelsheim
