    Winemaker's Notes:

    This bottling is designed to show off the inherent power that younger vines display in the Ribbon Ridge Appellation. There is a darkness that runs through this wine from its color, to its aromatic profile, into the flavors and down into the tannins that finish it off. While other qualities resonate in flashes such as violets and bing cherries in the nose and rose petal and loam in the mid-palate the background of power and darkness is always there. While this wine is not truly a powerful wine as it is quite graceful it has a brooding character that gives it quite a bit of depth. This is a terrific expression of the type of subtle power wines from the Ribbon Ridge Appellation contain. Sort of like Baryshnikov doing Swan Lake in a leather jacket while carrying brass knuckles.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Pinot Noir Estate is more deeply colored with a seductive perfume of smoke, rose petal, incense, terroir notes, black cherry and black raspberry. Mouth-filling, intense, already complex, and lengthy, it will evolve for another 2-3 years and offer a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2023.

    The Wine Advocate

    Full red. Pretty, high-pitched aromas of raspberry, rose petal, Asian spices and musky underbrush. Supple, silky and nicely balanced, with an alluring sweetness to the intense red fruit flavors. Becomes spicier in the middle palate and shows excellent clarity. Really spreads out on the spicy, focused, very long finish. Green describes this as "wild fruit, not domesticated.
