About Raptor Ridge Winery
If you come to Raptor Ridge hoping to find a fossil between the rows of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, you’ll be sorely disappointed. The estate gets its name from the many birds of prey native to the area—red tailed hawks, kestrels, owls and more. In addition to the birds, you’ll also find elegant, structured Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, and Gruner Veltliner.

Bright ruby-red. Ripe cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by cola, mocha and licorice nuances. Fleshy and broad on the palate, offering powerful dark fruit flavors that show more energy with air. Closes with impressive power, leaving spicy cherry and blackberry notes behind. Give this hefty, intensely flavored pinot some air time.
