Winemaker Notes

A true snapshot of the Ribbon Ridge AVA! Our estate vines pair perfectly with neighboring vines from Armstrong, Veeman, and Lichtenwalter vineyards. Enjoy notes of boysenberry, cinnamon, and dried tobacco.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2016 Pinot Noir Perspective features ripe boysenberry and black cherry notes on the nose with notions of violet, Earl Grey tea, potpourri and dried leaves. Light to medium-bodied, it gives blue and black fruits in the mouth with plenty of spicy accents, framed by soft grainy tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long.

This offers crisp and crunchy red to darker-cherry aromas and flavors in crunchy, brambly mode. Drink now.

Ribbon Ridge is a regular span of uplifted, marine, sedimentary soils (called Willakenzie), whose highest ridge elevations twist like a ribbon. An early settler from Missouri named Colby Carter noticed this unique topography and gave the region its name in 1865—though but it wasn’t declared its own AVA until 140 years later, in 2005. The AVA is enclosed by mountains on all sides between Yamhill-Carlton and the Chehalem Mountains, and is actually part of the larger Chehalem Mountains AVA. Its soils have a finer texture than its neighbors with parent materials composed of sandstone, siltstone, and mudstone. Given its presence of natural aquifers in this five square mile area, most vineyards are actually easily dry farmed!

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
