Raptor Ridge Pinot Noir

Explore our single-vineyard and cuvee offerings using the drop-down menu to the left, or tri-bar button above on mobile.

Raptor Ridge sources from our estate vineyard in the Chehalem Mountain AVA, Tuscowallame, plus a rich tapestry of select Willamette Valley sites – up to 12 in a given vintage spanning multiple sub-appellations in the region. These long-term partnerships with vineyards such as Shea and Meredith Mitchell have given us more “ingredients” with which to blend and ultimately provide sensory complexity in our winemaking style.

Tuscowallame Vineyard is an 18-acre site planted to predominantly Pinot Noir plus one and a half acres of Grüner Veltliner. It is comprised of 13 separate blocks, each planted to different clones and rootstocks that address distinct soil characteristics. The word, Tuscowallame, is an indigenous word meaning “where the owls dwell.”

94 Points- Wine Enthusiast (October, 2018) This concentrated and detailed wine brings black cherry, mocha and cinnamon toast flavors together on the precise palate. Fine-grained tannins provide the scaffolding for a long finish, with a pleasing lick of chocolate.-Paul Gregutt

The renowned Shea Vineyard boasts beautiful red fruits, ripe tannin and a velvety texture in this 2015 Vintage.
