Raptor Ridge Pinot Noir Mcminnville Stony Mountain 2009

Member Review by Chris Carpita:

At first, I wasn't blown away, but I slowly proceeded to devour the entire bottle. The nose is really low key and gentle, with oak aromas, herbs, and red fruit. Really shines on the palate, with a sloping attack and a nice combination of fruits and toastiness playing off each other to a more powerful finish. Really good length. This is the kind of wine that can get you interested in Pinot Noir.

Raptor Ridge shares a 27-acre estate with families of Raptors — birds of prey such as Red-tailed Hawks, Kestrels, Sharp-Shinned Hawks and Owls. We are located on the northeast side of the Chehalem Mountains, 10 miles north of Newberg, Oregon. At Raptor Ridge, our winemaking goal is to capture the fresh fruit flavors and delicate aromas offered by Oregon's Willamette Valley winegrowing region. Raptor Ridge Pinot noir ages in French oak and is racked in synchrony with the dark of the moon. Raptor Ridge Pinot gris is made in a refreshing Alsacian style. Vineyards In addition to our own 27-acre estate property, several distinctive vineyards throughout Oregon's northern Willamette Valley supply premium wine grapes for Raptor Ridge. Our Pinot noir style favors deep red and blue-fruit flavors and baker's chocolate aromas often derived from winegrapes grown in the McMinnville Foothills area. Our Vineyard Designated wines, as well as our Reserve and Willamette Valley Pinot noirs, hail from several well-known winegrowers. Read less
