Raptorridge pinotnoir estate

Pinot Noir, Estate 2014

Raptor Ridge

Our estate Pinot noir is noted for its silky texture, fine-grained tannins, Italian plum, cherry, black pepper and mineral notes. Tuscowallame Pinot noir may be found in many of our cuvees, such as Trig, Flight Club Select, Reserve, and Willamette Valley. Our first vintages from the estate were released as Adolfo’s Block 2006-2010. Since 2011, we have blended the now-mature Macario and Dustin blocks with Adolfo’s to achieve a 500+ case Estate bottling.

Reviews

  • "92 points. This really shows a beautiful purity of fruit and a wealth of fine and polished tannins. Full-bodied, yet tight and composed. Silky and caressing mouthfeel. Lovely definition. Drink or hold." (James Suckling)
