RATINGS

93The Wine Advocate

...scents of blueberry coulis, boysenberries and crushed black cherries with notes of licorice, autumn leaves, violets and a meaty undertone. It’s medium-bodied and gives up oodles of spiced fruits, gently framed, super fresh and with a long, spicy finish.

93Vinous / IWC

...ripe red/blue fruit, incense, potpourri and smoky mineral aromas... Sweet and expansive in the mouth, displaying raspberry and cherry liqueur, savory herb and spicecake flavors that slowly turn sweeter on the back half. Shows wonderful, youthful fruity character and spicy lift on the finish, which is framed by well-knit tannins leaves suave floral and mineral notes behind.

93Wine Enthusiast

...nuanced flavors with notes of seashells and minerals along with plump blackberry fruit...elegant and detailed...

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.
