2007 RIBBON RIDGE WINERY PINOT NOIR ESTATE RESERVE RIDGECREST VINEYARDS RIBBON RIDGE OREGON

2007: In summary, we think this may be a fantastic white vintage and a surprisingly good red

vintage, despite the rain that many times might lead to less intense wines. With rain in the range of

2005 and much less than the last really rainy harvest season of 1997, most winemakers in the

valley knew how to adapt and took advantage of the vintage’s attributes, such as lower sugars

(and therefore alcohols) and higher acids. As long as botrytis is kept from reds or sorted out, and

winemaking sleight of hand provides physical therapy for the intensity shortcomings, such as

saignée, tannin adds, chaptalization, and acidulation, the vintage will have stellar wines, just with

more variability. Buy whites in general, buy reds from trusted names.
