    Winemaker's Notes:

    Brooding aromas of mocha and smoky vanillin of oak mix with ripe blackberry and blueberry fruit. The palate is structured round and full, revealing rich plum and spice cake flavors cloaked in silky yet meaty tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Supple, refined and distinctive for the purity and clarity of its dark berry, cherry and guava flavors, lingering easily on the light, expressive finish.

    This is an engaging mouthful of cherry-berry fruit soaked in toasty accents of mocha and caramel. Luscious and long, with a smooth, supple mouthfeel, it's hard to keep your hands off it. Cellar Selection.

    The 2009 Pinot Noir Reserve is a blend of all seven vineyards with which Raptor Ridge works. It is free of any greenness while displaying notes of toasty oak, spice box, and black fruits. On the palate it exhibits plenty of depth, layered fruit, a bit of succulence, and good concentration. It should drink well through 2019.

    I'm really lovin' the Oregon Pinots, and this one is among my favorites. They have such complex flavors and great mouth feel. To me they are a lot more like old world than new world.
