Raptor Ridge Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Yamhill County Cuvèe 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby red in color with a subtle nose of roses, freshly turned earth, and ripe red cherries, this vintage of Shea is a bit more subdued than usual. Well-integrated oak lends a brown spice characteristic. The mouth feel is silkier and rounder than any previous Shea vintage, with a lingering finish reminiscent of blueberry cobbler. We suggest pairing this vintage with subtler flavors of fish and fowl, rather than heavy lamb and beef dishes.

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
