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.

($44) Light red. Smoky cherry and blackberry aromas are complemented by notes of dried rose and minerals. Sweet red and dark berry flavors are braced by a tangy mineral quality and gain depth with air. Finishes on a gently sweet raspberry note, with sneaky persistence.
