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.

91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2012
Light, bright red. Sexy, high-pitched aromas of strawberry, rose and Asian spices, with a hint of white pepper building with air. Tangy and precise on the palate, offering sweet red fruit flavors and a silky, seamless texture. A blood orange quality adds bite to the very long, spicy, appealingly sweet finish.
