(2020) From the Ribbon Ridge 'nested' sub-zone of the Chehalem Mountain AVA in the northern Willamette, this vineyard planted in 2012 abutts the famous Beaux Freres vineyard, in which winemaker Mike Etzel was, and remains, a founding partner. There are 15 differenet Pinot clones planted. The wine is fragrant and bold, with some plum and sous bois notes, an earthy hummus quality and red fruit. On the palate the most savoury of the wines so far, a salty, sour lick of plum and orange, the wine seems powerful and structured without being dense, and though lacking some of the charm of others, its clearly a serious high quality wine that should come into its own much more with food.
