RATINGS

94Wine Spectator

Expressive, rich and complex, layering blueberry, cherry and plum flavors with savory spice and cedar notes, with fine-powder tannins lifting the long finish. 500 cases made.

93Vinous / IWC

Vibrant, sharply delineated raspberry, Asian spices & potpourri lent urgency by a strong mineral flourish. Juicy, spicy & focused; red berry, rose pastille & spicecake... impressively long & aromatic, resonating florality & silky tannins...

92The Wine Advocate

...pretty rose hip tea and garrigue notes with underlying cranberry, Bing cherry, bay leaves and damp earth notes... finely crafted in the mouth, it has a lovely frame of very fine tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long and earthy.

REGION

United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley, Ribbon Ridge

Willamette Valley AVA was established in 1983, and it is the oldest appellation in Oregon. Oregon’s modern wine industry began in the Willamette Valley in the 1960s when artists, vagabond winemakers, and U.C. Davis oenology graduates looking for new territory started their own, small, off-the-grid wineries. The appellation is the state’s largest, and it extends 175 miles from Columbia River on the Washington/Oregon border to just south of Eugene, near central Oregon. The Willamette River runs through the area, helping to give the appellation a mild year-round climate. There are six smaller sub-appellations within this AVA, but altogether the Willamette Valley has the largest concentration of wineries in Oregon, as well as the majority of the state’s most famous producers. Pinot Noir is king here, followed by Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Riesling. To most admirers of Oregon Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley offers the most distinctive wine choices in the state.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
