More About This Wine
Almost thirty years ago Harry Peterson-Nedry began scouting potential vineyard locations in Oregon's burgeoning wine country. He soon discovered what's now called Ribbon Ridge, an ancient, uniform sedimentary hillside at the extreme western end of the Chehalem Mountains. There, he planted the Ridgecrest Vineyard, Chehalem's oldest, in 1982.
90 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2008
($32) Light gold. Impressively complex aromas of tangerine, cantaloupe, iodine, toasty lees and smoked meat. Fleshy orchard fruit and melon flavors are braced by nervy minerality and complicated by candied flowers and musky peach pit. Gains sweetness on the impressively long finish but retains excellent focus.
