Raptor Ridge Vineyard Designate Wines

Raptor Ridge has maintained working relationships with an array of vineyard owners for the entirety of our 20-year history. We are proud to source from premier pinot noir vineyards representating the great diversity of soil types and mesoclimates in our corner of the northwest Willamette valley. We like to seperate individual blocks within vineyard designate wines, with the belief that microclimates within vineyards will yield different expressions of pinot noir. We restrain the use of new oak on our pinot noir, and rest our wines for nine months on average, in order to promote the character and individuality of each vineyard site. 

 

 

2013 Black Hole Vineyard

Located in the Chehalem Mountains AVA at 700-foot elevation, Black Hole Vineyard is planted to Dijon clone 777 and Pommard. Since 2011, Raptor Ridge has included Black Hole Vineyard fruit in its Trig, Reserve, Willamette Valley and Vineyard designate bottlings. These Witzel soil plantings offer notes of baked plum, pencil lead, forest floor and mushroom. Probably the most asked-about name for a vineyard, Black Hole gets its moniker from the vineyard co-owner  who one day said, "This vineyard is a big black hole into which we keep pouring money.” We’re glad that Tom and Deb Mortimer have invested so wisely in this piece of dirt, and painstakingly brought it to life with such quality fruit for us to source!

The 2013 Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir reveals the subtleties of the vintage, and is defined by a haunting aromatic profile of raspberry, dried rose petal and orange peel. This wine is lifted and bright on the palate, coming through with defined notes of strawberry, raspberry, white pepper, and an acidity typical of the '13 vintage. 91 pts - Wine Advocate & Wine Spectator

The 2014 Black Hole Vineyard Pinot Noir combined black fruit (think brambly blackberry) with an intriguing herbal tone. While mid-palate weight is rich and full, confirming the vintage, the finish is lifted and acidic.

2014 Crawford Beck Vineyard Magnum

In 2012 we had the great pleasure of adding a new sub AVA to the Raptor Ridge mix when David and Jeanne Beck approached us about working with their Dijon 115 clone Pinot noir from Crawford Beck Vineyard in the Eola Amity Hills. These meticulously cared for vines are planted in Jory soils at 460-foot elevation and impart the classic blue fruits found in the Eola-Amity AVA with a lovely hint of forest floor/mushroom all wrapped up in a very silky texture. A cool site, these grapes typically come in later in the harvest.
