Raptor Ridge Cuvees 

                                              

Alongside Raptor Ridge's focus on site-specific wines, we also dedicate time and cellar-space to crafting red cuvees: careful blends of multiple vineyards aimed at producing nuanced flavors and aromas. These wines are blended around the vintage, and guided by the winemaker's palate through the process of tasting multiple barrels. 

 

 

2010 Reserve

Less than two cases...

A pleasant nose of red licorice whip and plum compote introduces the palate to penetrating flavors of red cherry laced with vanilla bean on the wine’s entry. A subtle fine-grained tannin texture frames the wine, which is fleshed out by sappiness that stops short of becoming cloyingly sweet. The wine is clean and flawless — it should evolve to a showy gem peaking 2017 thru 2020, though enjoyable now.

2013 Barrel Select

We are eager to share this approachable sipper around the dinner table. The nose is pretty, with soft notes of red fruits like red currants, red raspberry and a meaty spice, with a hint of Oregon forest floor that cries out for chanterelles. The palate has an ample finish with notes of black tea and cherry compote. Enjoy now with chicken marsala, grilled herbed salmon, or cellar to see how this wine evolves. Feel free to decant this wine to encourage aroma development at the table.

2011 Trig

Less than 5 cases available...

The 2011 Trig is a blend of Olenik and Goodrich Vineyards. 2011 is known as a rather shy vintage, but there is nothing shy about this cuvee. Trig is very expressive on the nose with boisterous, velvety fruit. Black cherry cola meets red vine and licorice whips. On the palate, this expressive character continues, wrapped up in a terrifically rich and structured wine, with hints of black tea and “woodsy” spices like cedar and clove. Enjoy now with pork chops and apple sauce. This wine will only continue to broaden over the next seven years as it ages.

2012 Trig

Smart, faithful, and true, Trig is the epitome of quality Oregon Pinot. This wine is always comprised of our two best barrels. For vintage 2011 Trig, we selected from two rather ‘cultish’ vineyards, Olenik in the Chehalem Mountains, and Goodrich from the Yamhill Carlton AVA.

2011 Reserve

Raptor Ridge Winery honors the diverse soil types of the Willamette Valley growing region with this blend of select vineyards. Each year, our Reserve is crafted through a process of careful barrel selection, balanced with blending trials that result in the best blend that the vintage has to offer.

This wine delivers some of the classic characteristics of this subtle, silky vintage. On the nose, red fruit like red raspberry, cherry, and strawberry dominate with warm brown spice undertones. The palate, though a bit tightly wound, supports these red fruits, with echoes of the brown spices and even a hint of mint to finish. With decanting, this wine will open up, revealing the beauty she will become with more time in the cellar.

90 Points, Wine Spectator, "...polished in texture...flavors lingering in the lively finish."

2012 Reserve

A generous nose of ripe black fruits like plum, black cherry and blackberry, is backed up with licorice, cola and hints of violets. The palate has a sweet, jammy, baked cherry entry, which quickly shifts to wild ripe blackberries and candied fruit, with a hint of black tea. Not at all flabby, this wine has a terrific cleansing acidity. Balanced and ready to enjoy now, this wine could pair nicely with grilled lamb kebobs, or even steak frites! Or, hang on to a few bottles to follow that tremendously long finish through a little more cellar age.  

91 Points, Wine Spectator, "Taut, minerally and expressive...This has tension and persistence."

92 Points, Josh Reynolds, Vinous : "Sappy and appealingly sweet on the palate, offering intense black raspberry and cherry compote flavors sharpened by a peppery nuance. Seamless, broad and fleshy but lively as well, finishing with gentle framing tannins and strong thrust and cling."
