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.

Vivid ruby-red. A heady, complex bouquet displays scents of red fruit liqueur, blood orange, potpourri, vanilla and mocha, with a bright mineral overtone. Palate-staining but energetic, offering an array of red berry and floral pastille flavors and a zesty Asian spice nuance. Sweet and precise on the finish, which leaves intense raspberry and star anise notes behind. This sexy pinot should age slowly and positively over at least the next decade.
