Like you, I've found some nice things about Mt Baker's Cabs. They definitely can be rustic, they don't come off as fruit forward, and they are a great bargain.

I too was impressed with the Chasselas (and I drink few whites). I haven't tried the pinot, but believe a few bottles are at a local shop here in Olympia. Time to taste. Your description sounds very close to a Columbia Cascade (between Quincy & Leavenworth) pinot I have tasted from White Heron Winery.
As for the Cab, I am still working on my 1998 Mt. Baker stash.
