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.

($24; a blend of 80% gamay and 20% pinot noir) Light, bright violet. Highly expressive aromas of strawberry, black raspberry, Asian spices and fresh flowers, with a bright note of white pepper adding vivacity. Very fresh, fruit-driven and frighteningly easy to drink, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and impressive clarity. Finishes with tangy dark berries and an echo of candied flowers.
