Winemaker's Notes

This wine definitely veers toward the darker, denser and more powerful side of Pinot Noir. Ribbon Ridge Appellation vines when they are young produce succulent, darkly fruited wines in their youth and this is no exception. Because of the combination of clones flavors can range from red raspberry up through black currant and blackberries. Tannins, even at this stage of the games, are dense and give the wine a brooding sort of nature that belies the relative youth of the vines from which it comes. This bottling is going to have a serious sense of pizzazz. The fruit is wonderfully ripe without being out of balance at all. The tannins are large-scale in some instances but, again, they are perfectly within context of the fruit intensity and acidity of the wine. This is large-scale stuff but it is in no way any sort of fruit-bomb. In fact, if anything this might be the most pulled in wine of this line-up due to the structure which pulls the wine in at the back-end of the wine. 1,445 cases bottled.
