Raptor Ridge Reserve Pinot Noir - 2005

Raptor Ridge Reserve Pinot Noir

Winery Story

Raptor Ridge shares a 27-acre estate with families of Raptors — birds of prey such as Red-tailed Hawks, Kestrels, Sharp-Shinned Hawks and ... (more...)Owls. They are located on the northeast side of the Chehalem Mountains, 10 miles north of Newberg, Oregon.

Tasting Note

Deep garnet in color, the Reserve is initially shy on the nose and benefits from time in the glass. Aromas evolve from dark cherry to plum.... (more...) A silky testure in the "attack" of this wine maneuvers across the palate and builds toward a crescendo of tine tannins, spice, and fresh-picked blackberries. Drink now through 2013.
