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.

Bright ruby-red. Seductive perfume of candied red berries, sassafras and incense, with a suave floral nuance that builds with aeration. Offers sweet red and dark berry flavors that show a liqueur-like intensity, with slow-building mineral and spice notes adding vivacity and back-end lift. The long finish features a juicy dark fruit character. This will benefit from at least another five years of bottle age.
