Raptor Ridge Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Yamhill County Cuvèe 2001

Member Review by lperlaky:

I've been hanging on to this bottle for a while. We really enjoyed it. It was served with Rib-eyes and Mahi-mahi for Christmas Eve dinner. This Pinot was more smokey than most, but interesting none the less. It definitely had all of the berry and fruit flavors described in the review. I've got a few other 01 Oregon Pinots to try over the new few weeks. I'm anxious to see how they all compare.

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
