2014 RIBBON RIDGE WINERY PINOT NOIR ESTATE RESERVE RIDGECREST VINEYARDS RIBBON RIDGE OREGON

2014: 2014 was one of those rare vintages that got everyone excited—writers and winemakers

love the quality, grape growers had no handwringing to do and yields pleased bankers, which also

means customers will see reasonable prices! Wine quality is excellent, based on full ripeness,

probably the cleanest fruit we’ve seen in decades, and restrained extractions in fermentation to

compensate for the warmest growing season on record assure balance. Despite the warmth of

over 2800 degree days, driven by many very hot summer days (almost double the over 90F highs

we’ve recently seen at 29) and warmer lows, good cropload balance and harvest timing gave

reasonable alcohols, averaging just under 14%. Whites are lush and gorgeously fruited. Pinot noir

colors are appropriately rich but not too deep, wines not tannic or over-extracted.
