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.

(made from fruit harvested at a low 21.3 degrees Brix; 12.5% alcohol): Vivid red. Intensely perfumed aromas of redcurrant, cherry and dried rose, with a zesty mineral overtone and a touch of vanilla. Lively and precise on the palate, offering refreshingly bitter red fruit and blood orange flavors and deeper cola, mocha and licorice nuances. Finishes sweet and very long, with lingering spiciness and smooth tannins.
