This wine is uniquely Lake Chelan–style containing burgundian and new world characteristics. Our high altitude and relatively cool climate makes the Lake Chelan terroir one of the best in the state for Pinot Noir producing this exceptional bottling. This is a fruit forward wine meant for early drinking. Beautiful acidity is balanced with bright, sweet red fruit and smooth tannins.
This wine is a bright medium ruby color with lush cherry fruit, and an elegant, modern style. Smooth and round with substantial mouthfeel and balanced acidity makes this Pinot Noir refreshing as well. Serve with grilled salmon, mushroom risotto, your best burgers or duck with cherry sauce.
The tale of the wine, the history, the people and the terroir that makes this place so distinctly Washington State.

30% new French oak
Clos CheValle vineyard is situated on a northeast facing slope on the south shore of Lake Chelan situated in the Lake Chelan AVA at an elevation at 1550’. The upper layer of soil is rich in volcanic pumice and ash from an eruption of Glacier Peak’s volcano 12,000 years ago. The lower layers are glacial debris and lake sediment, boulders, gravels and coarse sandy soils.
Clos CheValle Vineyard is one of Lake Chelan’s most picturesque growing sites along the south shore and near Bear Mountain Golf Resort, and it serves as the source of Pinot Noir for Judy Phelps. She made the pick on Sept. 19, her choice of 30% new Odysè oak from France creates aromas of smoked cherry, red currant, Strawberry Skittles, cinnamon and clove. Inside, there’s beautiful clarity with flavors of pie cherry and dried black currant, backed by remarkable balance and capped by a dash of cinnamon.

LAKE CHELAN AVA INFO
Clear, glacial waters irrigate our vines
Lake Chelan is an inland fjord measuring 55 miles long and is part of the North Cascade mountain range in north central Washington State.
It is one of Washington’s newest AVAs, receiving federal approval in 2009. Its geology differs from the rest of the state in that it was
influenced by the Missoula Floods that happened 20-10,000 years ago.
At the time of the floods, Lake Chelan was glaciated and protected from the floods, thus the soils here consist of sandy gravels with an abundance of granite bedrock, mica and quartz of glacial origin.
The soil here is also influenced by pumice from nearby volcanic eruptions 12,000 or so years ago, providing
