Ribbon Ridge, Willamette Valley

Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2017

Hasn't been so long since I opened this, but I'm trying to keep my hands off the Clos Electrique and Abbey Ridge. Wanted to wait until day 2, but failed. Pop, pour, showed a little funk, so I splash decanted this and let it sit. Notes from 2 hrs open. With some air, the funk becomes a lovely earthy mushroom savory note, with loads of sweet strawberry and cranberry carrying it. Fantastic acidity and spice on the palate, with a touch of black tea and very soft tannin. Another special bottle. — 2 days ago

Grower's Cuvée The Beaux Frères Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Raspberry, herbs and floral notes are found in this deep implosive wine. There is an elegance here waiting to emerge. Remind me of a Morey St.Denis. Lovely but needs more aging. — 2 years ago

Ribbon Ridge Estate 2017

13.1%. Dark fruit on the nose. Seems dark to me in the glass. Hint of sweetness - figs. Dark cherries bright and juicy with good acidity. Burgundian in style. This is impressive! Very well done! I would buy this - from the San Diego Wine Co. . This should be available in other retail stores and from the winery it’s worth to seek out. — 3 years ago
