Carabella Vineyarad is a 58 acre site on the southeast side of Parrett Mountain in the Chehalem Mountains. Winemaker Mike Hallock produces elegant estate Pinot Noir, Dijon Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. “It is all about vineyard site.” That’s the belief of former geologist and winemaker Hallock. The vineyard was the culmination of a twelve year search for a location combining the best criteria of top quality Oregon and French terroirs. Trained as a winemaker in Colorado (really!), Hallock brought his tanks and equipment over the mountains on a flatbed for the first vintage in 1998. The winery is virtual (i.e. rented space), but the vineyard is very real.

Winemaker Mike Hallock
Mike Hallock was a Colorado geologist for many years before finding his dream vineyard site in Oregon. He apprenticed under a winemaker in Colorado and took numerous classes at Davis to fulfill his dream of making wine from the first Carabella harvest in 1998.

2006 Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir
  • Appellation: Chehalem Mountains
  • Winemaker: Mike Hallock
  • Carabella Pinot Noir is a blend of five clones grown at Carabella. Extended sunshine in 2006 let me create a pinot noir with dominating fruit character. Approachable with an array of dark cherry, blackberry and plum character. The tannins are soft and fine-grained. The Pommard adds softness, while the chocolate tannins of the Wadenswil clone round out the cuvee.

    2006 Inchinnan Pinot Noir
  • Appellation: Chehalem Mountains
  • Winemaker: Mike Hallock
  • Dark earth. Velvet fruit. Allspice. Powerful black cherry flavors of Wadenswil define Inchinnan for this vintage. A barrel of Dijon 115 adds a lively spark. Two barrels of Dijon 114 elevate the cuvee with mushroom and forest floor dimensions. Smooth fine-grained mid palate tannins.

    2007 Dijon 76 Chardonnay
  • Appellation: Chehalem Mountains
  • Winemaker: Mike Hallock
  • The Dijon 76 Chardonnay is a blend of the North and East Block Carabella fruit. The long cool fall in 2007 provided extended hang time. Gradual accumulation of flavors in the vineyard created a balanced blend, showcasing elegant crisp flavors from the East Block. The North Block contributed bright acidity along with our trademark mineral finish.

    2006 Late Harvest Pinot Gris
  • Appellation: Chehalem Mountains
  • Dessert Wine
  • Winemaker: Mike Hallock
  • The lingering sunny fall provided just the right conditions to allow intense sugars to develop in the pinot gris. The grapes were picked a full 32 days after the main harvest. Aromas of honeysuckle and pie spice. Pale gold in color, flavors of wild honey and peach emerge. The 7% residual sugar is balanced by starfruit acidity. Sublime with artisan cheeses and Rainier Cherry tart.
